Visiting the Garden Route of South Africa for your holiday

  • Jet lag will not be experienced. The southern tip of Africa seems like a remote destination but when you consider that no major time zone changes need to be dealt with(when travelling from Europe), the usual nocturnal flight fits in with normal sleeping patterns and, and if you can catch a few hours sleep on a transcontinental flight, you are almost guaranteed a refreshed wake up before your arrival in Johannesburg or Cape Town. That is if the excitement will allow any sleep at all!
  • Sunshine, good weather, fantastic food and cheap commodities.
  • A favourable exchange rate.
  • Mossel Bay/Pinnacle Point is a short drive from all the Garden Route Golf Courses.
  • The region offers a multitude of activities for the non-golfing holiday maker.
  • Safety: Tourists are only recommended to areas known to be safe. Mossel Bay and surroundings are known to be the safest in South Africa.
  • The weather is mild, comparable to the climate in Hawaii.
