On my first trip to South Africa I of course did Cape Town, the peninsula and winelands surrounding it. I also stayed in a wildlife camp and did lots of safaris. And I would do it all again if given the chance, but I am all for new experiences, so next time I visit South Africa I would love to do the Garden Route.
The South African Garden Route is considered to be one of the greatest drives on earth, it also has the best land based whale watching and world class hiking and amazing scenery and wildlife and … and … and … I could just keep on going. And of course, it just wouldn’t be Africa without an abundance of chance to safari on land and water to see the wild animals.
The Garden Route is only 300kms long, but the range of things that you can experience in that short distance is phenomenal. I’d hire a car and head off along this route for about 14 days I think, including a couple of days either end in Cape Town and maybe head a bit further up to Kruger National Park. You could certainly do it in less time but I think that there is so much to see that I’d prefer to take my time.
I think that, including everything, this would be about a $10,000 trip for a family of 4 for 2 weeks.
Have you driven the Garden Route in South Africa?
