Traveling in the Garden Route Jan. 2011!
Posted January 15th, 2011 - 3:52 pm by from Logan, United States (Permalink)
Hello All,

I'm super excited to travel in the Garden Route from Jan. 19 - 27. I visited South Africa last year and had a great time, but have never been to the Garden Route. So I wanted to come back and explore all its great outdoor activities.

I don't have any set plans but I am thinking about hiking, mountain biking, camping and surfing along the way. I fly in George and then have about a week to explore the coast up to Port Elizabeth.

I am interested in hiking the Harkerville Coast trail, camping in Tsitsikamma (either Nature Valley or Storms River Mouth), and visiting Addo Elephant National Park outside of PE.

I prefer not to rent a car for the majority of the trip, so I am gonna use taxis and buses to get from town to town.

Any suggestions on places to visit or things to do would be greatly appreciated. Also would love to meet up with any CSers! If you are up for some outdoor adventures you are welcome to join!
