the Garden route is beautiful and scenic, take if you have time to drive slowly and enjoy the ride. The ultimate is from Durban to Cape Town, stop over at the small towns along the way

Feb and March are good months to visit with long hot days and very little rain. One of the best drives is along the 7 passes road between George and Knysna with a few Baines bridges if you are into history. Buffalo Bay is worth a visit. Knysna is worth a stay over and Tsitsikama National Park is stunning and worth a couple of nights to do all of the walking and trails and the snorkeling trail.

We were concerned about a self drive in South Africa as we are nervous drivers. but the Garden Route has good roads, awesome scenery and plenty of people around. Knysna is a must and the surrounding area has plenty to see and do for families. Lovelly beaches. We went inland to Robertson and rhe scenery was amazing.

We drove from Knysna to Cape Town as we wanted to see part of the Garden route. This part was not special. Knysna and Mossel Bay has nice parts but if you are expecting this to be a very beautiful and scenic drive, you will be disappointed. A visit to Mossel Bay can be done to relax, or see the seals/sharks but dont do it just for the garden route.
