The Garden Route

Southern Sky Adventures: The Garden Route

DINING COUPLEThe 300 mile rail journey between Cape Town and George, and then on to Knysna, a coastal jewel in the heart of the famous Garden Route, is rated one of the most beautiful in the world. From the Mother City, the Pride of Africa travels through the mountains before passing alongside vineyards, rolling wheat fields and racehorse stud farms in the Robertson Valley. There’s a stop to sample the famous wines of the district. Then it’s on to the coast and the picturesque town of George, where guests have the option of boarding the museum’s Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe for a spectacular 42 mile journey along the coast through South Africa’s own lake district to Knysna. This nature-lovers’ paradise is a mecca for visitors drawn to the town for its natural beauty, abundant bird life and numerous sporting and recreational activities.
