Since returning from three months in Africa, I’ve been commissioned to write quite a few articles on the Garden Route. This 800km stretch along South Africa’s southern coast has just about everything – spectacular scenery, beautiful hotels, lovely restaurants and great beaches. The bonus is, it’s really easy to access and the high quality highways means it’s perfect for taking a road trip.
There are many things I learnt along the way as we drove along the Garden Route which I would share with anyone interested in exploring this part of the country in the future – from the best farmers markets in the region to the best places to go hiking and the detour you must take to the incredible Klein Karoo. I have loads of tips, so do get in touch if you’re interested in going and need some inspiration, or would like to commission an article on the region.
For inspiration on the Garden Route in South Africa, do check out some of my posts here on the blog, including The top towns to visit along the Garden Route: a mini-guide. Otherwise, check out my easy-to-read guide, the 7 do’s and don’ts of road tripping the Garden Route, which you can read in full over on the Cheapflights blog.
