Welcome to the Garden Route Collection

Welcome to the Garden Route and Klein Karoo – the Southern Cape Coast of South Africa’s Western Cape Province, and the country’s favourite destination for holiday makers on vacation, a prolonged break or business event.

Where is the Garden Route?

We’re situated on the 33rd and 34th parallel, conveniently half way between the winelands of Cape Town in the Western Cape and the malaria-free game reserves of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape (although we have some of our own wine lands and plenty of our own game and nature reserves, too, of course).

Why the Garden Route Collection?

The Garden Route Collection’s purpose is to showcase those places and people who will touch your heart, who run their business with passion, who care for their community, the environment, their team and their guests.

Places and businesses known for their hospitality by locals, ready to share their love for what they do with you and your clientele.

What’s on this site?

Let us introduce you to a selection of 3-, 4- and 5-star accommodations, activities, food & drinks venues, wildlife, events and other tourism-friendly businesses in this Southern Cape region. 

Most establishments and businesses are independently owned and mostly owner-run and -managed, guaranteeing you and your clients of personalized service and experiences. 

Operators’ info is readily available: (rack) rates, contact details, fact sheets, downloadable directions and links to social media. Handy icons give you a quick overview, while links to other parts of the region will make you realize the Garden Route and Klein Karoo are one of the most diverse destinations in the whole of South Africa.  No more long-distance driving until you find that next jewel on the tourism map, you’ll find them right here!
