Your questions matter to us! What would you like to know about South Africa Garden Route & Photo Safari?

Our First-Hand Experience

The view from our hotel suite with lovely large windows overlooking the ocean in Plettenberg Bay was glorious.  Our favorite spot for dinner was just below the hotel where there is a small beach front fish restaurant.  On this trip we had Josie and her friends who loved taking photos on the rocks jutting out into the water.

As we drove along the coastline from town to town we were taken with not only the beauty but the fun activities along the way such as golf, zip lining, whale watching, harbor towns and great shopping.

Of course not trip to Africa is complete without a photo safari.  We had Elephants brush beside our vehicle, numerous lion sightings, Rhino and a leopard that walked right past our vehicle.  It was magical!
