Camping the Garden Route

Camping in the Garden Route

A variety of experiences await you below the tall canopies. There are several well-marked and uncrowded walking trails ranging in length from novice to advanced. Excellent mountain bike trails criss-cross the rolling hills and sumptuous valleys. Both are suitable for self-exploration, but guided options do exist.

You feel welcome here and yesterdays and tomorrows are easily dismissed from your thoughts as you are spoilt by the beauty of each now moment. It is a feeling that our souls are immediately drawn to and that will refresh you as a memory when you return to your harsher life at home. Nature has blessed Knysna and resists attempts to release its gentle domination of the town. It was the valuable timber from these forests that first attracted habitation of this natural oasis on South Africa’s famous Garden Route.
