Where to go from George Airport
Explore the lovely garden route; the term Garden Route refers to a stretch of coastline approximately 200km long through one of the most scenic and densely vegetated parts of South Africa.
It starts roughly around Mossel Bay in the Western Cape and follows the undulations of the coast all the way to the Tsitsikamma National Park at its’ eastern boundary.
Visit the coastal towns of Wilderness, Sedgefield, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, all linked by this beautiful coastal drive past the many lakes, inlets, lagoons and forests, not to mention the ever-present mountains.
Adventure Sports in the Garden Route
Your journey will take you up close to all the action this region offers, from scuba diving, abseiling, bungee-jumping (the highest bridge bungee in the world), deep sea fishing and canopy-tours in the Tsitsikamma National Park, not to mention the opportunity to visit the famous Knysna Elephants!
Also make sure to visit Oudtshoorn to see the famous Cango Caves and an ostrich farm where you can ride one of these ungainly birds, if you are brave enough!
At the end of your holiday in this very beautiful part of the world simply drop off your hire car at George Airport and catch a flight to your next South African destination!
