The Garden Route is a beautiful stretch of coastal paradise where you can feast your eyes on everything fauna and flora - and not to mention our friendly South African people.

We depart by 07h30 from Cape Town and travel on to Stellenbosch for further collections. We then continue via the town of Montagu on the scenic ‘Route 62’ to the pretty village of Barrydale where we stop for tea (own account). Then it’s on to Oudtshoorn, known as the ‘feather capital of the world’ thanks to its huge ostrich industry.
