Visitors: 123

South Africa is fortunate to have a beautiful area of lush forests, beaches, mountains and scenic attraction. This area is called the Garden Route - it is a favoured route for both locals and tourists to enjoy the many and varied areas.

The area boasts several wonderful restaurants, which are an attraction not just for the great food but also the splendid views to watch the surfers and whales. Mossel Bay, offering Mossel Bay Acommodation, also offers an aquarium. Hiking and forest trails are offered in many areas, including Tsitsikamma and your Knysna Accommodation host will guide you to preffered trails. Trailing on these paths will afford you panoramic seaviews.

South Africa also contains some of the oldest artifacts in the world, including some that date back over 80,000 years.

When you visit Mossel Bay, you will find one of only two lighthouses on the South African coast which is manned 24 hours a day. Your Mossel Bay Accommodation will also be able to guide you to the local museum and the famous Mossel Bay post office and war memorial.

Other activities offered along this route include swimming in safe unspoilt beaches, enjoying the natural rock pools, surfing, scuba diving and snorkeling. Additional water adventures include deep sea fishing, rock angling; whale and Dolphin watching; shark cage diving, seal island trips and sailing.

Some Garden Route Accommodation establishments also offer horse back riding and golf. Other areas within this scenic route and offering these and more attractions include George Accommodation, Knysna Accommodation, Mossel Bay Accommodation, Plettenberg Bay Accommodation, Sedgefield Accommodation, Wilderness Accommodation and Witsand Accommodation.
