South Africa’s famed Garden Route is more than a scenic coastal drive. The tour takes in one of the country’s largest national parks, multiple winery visits, deluxe boutique accommodation and opportunities to get up close and personal with some of Africa’s endangered wildlife. Photographic opportunities are endless and your taste buds will be in heaven! The menu in each of the places we stay will focus on local organic produce.
Served with South Africa’s award winning wines imagine sparkling fresh seafood, line-caught fish, vegetables and fruits straight from the garden. Ethically run farms, all accompanied by the best local wines from top wineries. Tom from "Naked Hungry Traveller" says this is one of the great ways to really experience a different side of South African and encourages you to join him on a "foodie" inspired journey.
