Garden Route Info

Welcome to Garden Route Info!  

Garden Route Info endeavours to provide tourists and holiday makers with an informative and user-friendly directory that will enable you to search for information on Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants and Businesses, along the Garden Route.  If you are looking for accommodation on the Garden Route, please browse our Accommodation section and you are sure to find suitable lodgings to suit all tastes and budgets.

The Garden Route is one of the most spectacular roadways in South Africa and follows the coastline through the Western Cape to the start of the Eastern Cape.  This 200km stretch of road encompasses brilliant displays of natural and unique beauty, an ecologically diverse vegetation, sparkling lagoons, lakes and rivers along with wonderful expanses of white sandy beaches.

The name Garden Route originates from the variety of vegetation encountered here and the abundant lagoons and lakes dotted along the coast.  Not surprisingly the area is internationally recognised combining a selection of treasures not found in such abundance anywhere else - unspoiled nature, adventurous activities, plenty of culture and safe travelling.

The climate here is temperate with warm summers and cool winters making the region ideal for fair weather visitors.  Rain occurs throughout the year with a slight peak in Spring.  The Garden Route runs from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to Storms River in the Eastern Cape.  The towns along the route each have their own distinctive qualities, each with their own special attributes to activities, attractions and accommodation.

 

Garden Route Accommodation

The accommodation options along the Garden Route are endless. Go to our Accommodation section and choose from Hotels, Bed and Breakfasts, Self-catering units, cottages, farm lodges, wine farm stays, backpackers and much more.

The accommodation directory listings for Garden Route info give informative information and photos of all our advertisers across the Garden Route.  They provide material on their establishments, covering details indepth, along with photos and a direct link to their website.

Garden Route Activities

The activities and attractions along the Garden Route are interesting and varied depending on the town.  There is something for everyone from the mild and easy to thrill-seeking.  The Garden Route is very family orientated with children never being over-looked whether at farm stalls, restaurants or attractions.

The Garden Route has spectacular grasslands, wetlands, forests, dramatic mountains, indigenous fynbos and all the animal attractions in between, make up this lush and ecologically diverse region.  There is known to be approximately 300 species of birds living in a variety of habitats along the route making the Garden Route the perfect journey for twitchers!

With all this lushness, deep forests and long stretches of beach, it is no wonder that the Garden Route provides the most amazing walks and trails.  The real treasures are only accessible by foot giving visitors a chance to get up close and personal to nature. A very educational tour in the Knysna Forest is the Knysna Forest Tour.

At every village, town and city there are sign posted hiking trails, with variances in difficulty.  The best option would be to pop into the tourist information offices at which they will provide you with relevant information.

 

Garden Route Dining

Fine dining, pub grub, homemade, quick and easy, BBQ South African style, Italian, Mexican, German – Anything goes, just name it!

However, if you are a seafood fan the Garden Route is of course the place to be.  Specialty dishes available at every turn freshly caught and magnificently prepared.  See the restaurant directory for all our advertisers along the Garden Route.
