Explore the Cape Garden Route and Klein Karoo
Welcome to the Cape Garden Route and Klein Karoo
Visit the Cape Garden Route and Klein Karoo, SA’s Garden of Eden and little desert.
The Cango Caves in Oudtshoorn are South Africa's oldest tourist attraction - the first to be protected by environmental legislation and the first to employ a full-time tourist guide.
Stretching from Witsand and Plettenberg Bay in the west to Stormsriver in the east, the Cape Garden Route is home to whales and dolphins frolicking in the bay, cool waterfalls cascading down shimmering rock and towering mountain scapes.
Bounded on the north by the Swartberg, and on the south by the Langeberg and Outeniqua Mountains, the Klein Karoo is a desert biome with the highest diversity of succulent plants in the world, bird, reptile, mammal and insect life, amazing geological formations, fossils and unique rock art.
Memories of the Cape Garden Route and Klein Karoo
“I visited the Garden Route during the Easter holidays. I was so impressed with all the towns all of which had so much to offer, each distinct in its own character. You can be sure I will be doing the garden route time and time again.”
