I see this is the 2nd time you've posted this question. You may have not received a reply as your question is too broad, suggestions are: search the web about this area & this site & then come back with specific questions.

I agree, no indication of duration, or budget etc. so difficult to tell, more details needed. But maybe just to get you started : 2 nights at Tsitsikamma (don't know which side you are coming from PE or Cape Town) 2 nights at Knysna and 2 nights anywhere else the route (Swellendam, (inland) or Hermanus etc.

Car hire: try Budget, Avis etc

I have to agree with the details.

Be more specific:

1)How many days do you want to stay here?

2)Where will you be traveling from, Port Elizabeth or Cape Town?

3)Guest Houses, B&B or Hotel's?

4)Self Driving or with a tour operator?

5)What is your interests, hiking wildlife, nature, animals, elephants rides, etc?

Here is a pretty broad covering of the Garden Route:


Have a click through the various sections and hit us up again with specific questions once you know what you'd like to do.

On a personal note, I was there recently and did the Elephant Sanctuary, which was Amazing, and the Plett Puzzle Park, which looked like kids stuff but was actually really challenging and a lot of fun. I stayed at Bamboo Guest House, which was really really nice and I would happily go back, but it is a bit like staying in a fairy forest - not for everyone.

Let us know if you have something specific to ask :)
