The Garden Route

The Garden Route is one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in the Cape with its breathtaking natural setting that it is described as the Garden of Eden. This area, locked between towering Cape fold mountains and the Indian Ocean, was created during the formation of the supercontinent, Gondwana, 542 million years ago. It became the home of the first ancestors of modern humans and later was inhabited by the Khoi and San. In 1488, Bartolomeu Dias was the first foreigner to land at the Cape at Mossel Bay while trying to find a route to the East around the tip of Africa.This landing changed the history of the Garden Route and South Africa forever. The Garden Route offers visitors everything for anyone who wants to escape big city life.
