Have you ever longed for the mild climate of a Hawaiian holiday but with the adventure and excitement of an African safari? Then the unique, lagoon saturated views and bustling towns of the Cape Garden route may just be perfect for you. Why be forced to choose between Africa’s most exciting game and her exquisite coasts when you can see it all? Let Go Touch Down Travel and Tours craft you the perfect Garden Route exploration and come play in the sun and surf!
This unique corner of Africa offers you quaint rustic towns and bustling cities, dramatic and ever shifting landscapes found nowhere else in the world, lush beaches and deep gorges, towering mountains and deep forest, and a chance to see the best of Africa’s wildlife both onshore and in the sea.
Tracing the southern coastline, the Garden Route stretches from Mossel Bay and the Cape through George, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and the Tsitsikamma Forest. Even your time spent travelling will be enjoyed, as the rugged landscape shifts to dry bush and then waterlogged lagoon around you. Indulge a passion for watersports and surfing at Jeffrey’s Bay, or explore the unique and delicate fynbos unique to this area of the Cape. Meet whales up close and personal in the whale-spotting capital of the world, Hermanus, and watch them play with their calves in the warm seas.
Take to the beach and drink in some sun yourself, or explore the rich history and quaint architecture of Montague and the Breede River valley. Explore the Cango Caves near Oudtshoorn, and experience Africa’s largest ‘show cave’ system for yourself, or visit the town for ostrich rides and more. Hiking trails and eco-tourism activities abound for conscientious travellers.
