The Garden Route is one of the most beautiful routes to drive in the Western Cape and I had the wonderful opportunity to join an educational trip exploring this area.

I was fortunate to stay at Garden Route Game Lodge in one of their newly built rooms. Beautiful modern rooms with amazing views over the reserve. The staff and management makes you feel part of their establishment from the moment you arrive till the minute you depart. From Garden Route Game Lodge we travelled to Oudtshoorn, one of my favourite places. The atmosphere and the people in Oudtshoorn are amazing. I personally feel a person should stay two nights or more. There are so many beautiful properties, restaurants with amazing food and activities to do. Be sure to include it on your next Garden Route holiday!
