Golf in the Garden Route

Cape Town and the Western Cape is a world-renowned golfing destination, with a diverse portfolio of courses to play, many of which have been designed by some of the world’s best golfers. The Garden Route is arguably the home of golf in the Western Cape with some of the most popular courses found here. From Gary Player to Ernie Els, there is a reason legends of the game have a base on the Garden Route. 


Recently voted by The Telegraph as one of the best destinations worldwide for watching marine mammals, Hermanus is rated as one of the top 12 whale-watching locations in the world by the World Wildlife Fund. It offers the best land-based viewing opportunities because the whales often come within metres of the shoreline, including southern right whales, humpback whales, and Bryde’s whales. 

The Cross Cape Cycle Route

Crossing the length of the Western Cape – from Plettenberg Bay to Stellenbosch – the newly-launched cycle route offers a truly unique way to experience the province. From majestic vistas and rugged mountain passes to coastal towns and rustic inland villages, this is a bucket list experience for cyclists and non-cyclists alike. Open 24/7, 365 days of the year, the route is completely free of charge – all you need is a bike and a plan of action!
