Hello Travellers...

South Africa is blessed with a staggeringly gorgeous coastline, but just before the Western and Eastern Cape meld into each other you'll find a rare string of pearls that make up the Mermaid's purse of the Garden Route.

It really is far and few between that you find visitors to South Africa not including a Garden Route road trip  into their round-tour of the country. Yes, the Garden Route has pretty much become synonymous with SA must-dos such as the Big Five and Table Mountain.

For locals too, this has become the go-to long weekend escape. From its secret beaches to the pull of Keurbooms,  to having spectacular nature reserve experiences in the likes of Robberg or the Tsitsikamma and not forgetting the iconic Otter Trail,  the highest Bungee Jump in the world or the majestic Outeniqua Mountains -  it all really depends on how much time you have to explore.

Whether you choose to make the most of its secret season or plan on heading there for your end-of-year break, we've rounded up more than a few reasons to visit

Enjoy!
