We self drove the garden route heading to route 62 from Knysna. The roads are great and the scenery nice too, although coming from New Zealand I think we are spoiled for coastal and mountain scenery here so we weren't completely blown away by the scenery. Food, accommodation and various attractions were all fabulous. Stopped off at the famous surf beach - Jeffreys bay and although not expecting it mid May saw a whale swimming by which was pretty cool. There's lots to do, especially around Knysna and Outdshoorn and we would have liked to have had a couple of nights at one or both of those places to fit more in under less time pressure. Hindsight is a wonderful thing!
