The Garden Route on the western cape of South Africa has been named as a staff favourite destination by a travel website.

“Described as the most beautiful region in the Western Cape of South Africa, if not the entire country, the Garden Route offers pristine beaches, lush forests, crystal lakes and cool rivers,” wrote Barry, director and co-founder of Skyscanner.

Chosen for its landscapes, atmosphere, weather and food, people headed on holiday to South Africa are advised to spend a night at Knsna and another in Cape Town.

The Garden Route runs for 200 kilometres down the east coast of South Africa from Mossel Bay to the mouth of the Storms River and passes through beaches, forests, mountains and past rivers.

According to the site’s director, those flying to Cape Town should not miss a trip to Plettenberg Bay to watch whales from the beach.

The region benefits from a warm summer and mild winter similar to the Mediterranean, noted SouthAfricaVenues.
