SANParks: Garden Route National Park (Tsitsikamma)

You couldn’t be more spoiled for choice when it comes to activities in the Garden Route, most commonly hiking, mountain biking, scuba diving, water sports, and birding. To really get to know the area, why not strap on those hiking boots and tackle the renowned Otter Trail? You will need to book in advance as numbers are limited and the trail is very popular.

If you’re planning on spending some time on the Tsitsikamma stretch, get up close and personal with nature by camping at the Storms River Mouth or stay in a family log cottage or romantic forest cabin for a bit more shelter under the stars.


Highlights:

  • The Garden Route National Park is split into Tsitsikamma, Wilderness and Knysna Lake sections
  • Diverse landscapes and even more diverse wildlife and activities
  • The area is known for hiking, mountain biking, scuba diving, water sports, and birding
