The Garden Route is an amazing self-drive trip covering a stunning stretch of coastline in the Eastern and Western Cape Provinces.

Nestled among the majestic Table Mountain National Park and pristine white beaches lies a vibrant and lively city. Cape Town, the starting point of this epic trip, is home to world-class restaurants, hip markets and a thriving art scene. A visit to Robben Island and The District Six Museum are poignant reminders of what the city has experienced and what has shaped it to become the place it is today. 

Past Cape Town’s borders, a world of adventure awaits - stunning vineyards, mountain ranges, national parks, charming towns and rugged coastlines. A sprinkling of bungy jumping, kayaking, game drives and penguin spotting should be thrown in for good measure!
