Sun International’s Didier Bayeye, team leader representing South Africa spoke about the enchanting Garden Route, South Africa

The Garden Route is a beautiful 200km stretch of coastline in the Eastern and Western Cape Provinces of South Africa, the full extent of the popular self-drive is from Cape Town in the west to Port Elizabeth in the east,
Meandering trails are followed by hikers, the forests invite long, leisurely drives, and the lakes and rivers lend themselves to swimming boating and fishing.

A wide range of leisure options, spectacular scenery and a mild climate guarantee an unforgettable holiday experience when visiting the Garden Route in South Africa.

A short distance inland of Tsitsikamma Route, the 215 m Bloukrans Bridge bungee jump is reputedly the worlds highest.

The Tsitsikamma sector of the Garden Route National Park protects a vast tract of indigenous forest along with a series of breathtaking cliffs that rise 180 m above the breakers below.

Highlights include the thrilling suspension bridge across the Storms River Mouth, and the 6 km Waterfall Trail, which follows the same stretch of rocky wave-battered shore as the legendary five-day Otter Trail.

It’s called the garden route due its natural flower season which grows all through the route where every kind of adventure activity is possible; scuba diving, abseiling, fishing and more. Its indigenous forests are a haven for birdlife.

One of the most geologically interesting parts of South Africa is the Klein Karoo, with its towering mountains and sheer gorges.
An important geological feature is the Cango Caves, situated outside the city of Oudtshoorn.

The Cango Caves are among the top ten most visited South African attractions.
Oudtshoorn itself, where you can enjoy wine tasting, driving in the winding mountain is well worth a visit.

The grandiose, old feather palaces are still to be seen, where you can enjoy riding on the back of an ostrich and being educated on ostrich farms, leather, eggs and their feathers.
