The Garden Route and its surrounds are not only home to spectacular beaches and forests — some of South Africa’s most prestigious safari lodges and game reserves are scattered along this stretch as well. Offering the closest ‘real safari’ experience to Cape Town and located in malaria-free areas, the Garden Route safari lodges are popular with locals and foreigners alike — an ideal combination of beach and bush.
While many of the reserves, such as Kwandwe, Shamwari Game Reserve, Idwala Game Lodge and Addo Elephant National Park, are situated close to Port Elizabeth at the Eastern end of the Garden Route, others such as Idwala Game Lodge and Gondwana Game Reserve are closer to Cape Town at the Western end of the Garden Route. A Garden Route Safari can easily be combined with time in Cape Town and other parts of South Africa — if you find yourself anywhere near this renowned stretch of land, do yourself a favour and include the Garden Route in your trip. Its seas and safaris won't disappoint! The Rhino Africa consultants are experts on the Garden Route and will help you plan your ideal itinerary.
