The area is a Garden of Eden; home to the Knysna elephant, the Knysna seahorse, Knysna dwarf chameleon, the brilliantly coloured Knysna Loerie, wild coastal oysters, dolphins, whales and much more.

A natural garden of magical forests, blue-crisp mountains, Fynbos and pure crystal water best describes the Eastern Garden Route. Also known as the Coastal Route East, it quite simply encapsulates South Africa’s inherent ‘green’ magnificence and is a must for all visitors who adore and yearn to embrace stunning outdoor splendour.

Culture & history

You have to dance the Hotnot’Riel around the fire, listen to storytelling of the Outa, sit and sample the Mielies & Bone with some Roosterbrood and Konfyt. Experience a cultural tour led by a guide with authentic Griekwa ancestors and stand next to the burial place of their beloved Paramount Chief A.A.S.Le Fleur to realise how accurate this psychic leader’s prophecies were. Discover the colourful townships and experience their essence. Take this opportunity to explore cultures different to your own and absorb the true spirit of living local.
