The Western Cape region
The Garden Route on the Western Cape includes one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline, that winds its way for some 200 km from Mossel Bay, via George, Wilderness, Sedgefield and Knysna on to Plettenberg Bay and culminating in the Tstisikamma Forest - a fairyland of giant trees, ferns and bird life.
This is arguably the best part of South Africa and is a must for nature lovers, hikers and beach bums! Some of the country's most picturesque hiking trails can be found in this region. Booking is however essential since these trails are in high demand.
The town of George, known as "The Gateway to the Garden Route", graces a coastal plateau in a fertile area of lush greenery at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountains. A n enjoyable day outing would include a two hour drive from George/Glentana to Oudtshoorn, "Capital of the Klein Karoo". This town is set in a semi-arid valley, providing the ideal habitat for ostriches which are farmed here on a grand scale.
Tourists can visit the ostrich farms to buy local produce and try their luck at riding these huge birds! The famous Congo caves can be included in this day trip to ensure an eventful day out. Alternatively hop aboard the Outeniqua Tjoe Choo steam train which runs from George to Knysna- one of the most scenic train journeys in the world, following the Indian Ocean coast line and winding up through the forests!
