Hermanus and the Garden Route

View All Holidays

Explore the glorious natural beauty of South Africa's south-eastern coast whilst staying in some of the region's finest hotels. Whether twinned with a luxury safari holiday or as a destination of its own, the Garden Route will not disappoint

Stretching along some stunning coastlines and peppered with hidden coves and charming towns, a luxury South Africa holiday spent exploring the Garden Route is sure to charm the discerning traveller.

A little over an hour from the Winelands, and just a little further still from Cape Town, is the peaceful town of Hermanus. Once a sleepy fishing village, Hermanus is now one of the world's foremost areas for land and sea based locations to view the Southern Rights whales.

Hermanus is a nature lover's paradise, where you can relax and enjoy the scenery, take nature walks along Walkers Bay, horse ride, play a round of golf, whale-watch or perhaps swim with sharks - if you dare!

Port Elizabeth, at the eastern end of the Garden Route, is the gateway to several malaria-free game reserves; perfect if you have young children in tow. For those wishing to explore a little further afield, the Zulu kingdom of KwaZulu-Natal has an increasing amount of high quality accommodation and it's easy to combine historic battlefield tours or the majestic Drakensberg Mountains with a few days on the sub-tropical coast near Durban.
