Garden Route - Holiday Tour Packages from India

 

The Garden Route is a stretch of coast on the south-eastern part of South Africa that extends from Mossel Bay to Storms River. It includes towns, such as Plettenberg Bay, Knysna and Nature’s Valley, with George as its largest city and main administrative center. As the place is home to a verdant and ecologically diverse ecosystem, it encompasses 10 nature reserves that embrace varied habitats on land and in the sea. In fact, some of its bays are nurseries to endangered species, such as the Southern Right Whales, which come here to reproduce in the winter and spring. Considering all the things that you can find in the Garden Route, it is definitely a great destination for a vacation.
