South Africa is place of varying and plentiful landscapes and we lucky locals are spoiled for choice when it comes to having to choose to live at the ocean’s edge, the blazing bushveld, big city or even in the shade of our rugged mountain ranges. What if you didn’t have to choose though and could have it all on your doorstep?
The Garden Route, which carves a trail through the Eastern and Western Cape from Mossel Bay to Storms River, is unquestionably one of our most famous stretches of coastline. The Garden Route is the perfect combination of the best beaches, mountains, forests and a range fauna and flora to delight nature lovers across the globe. Considered the capital of the Southern Cape and the Garden Route’s gateway, the town of George plays host to babbling rivers, lush forests, historic architecture and a friendly and neighbourly atmosphere – all served up with the breathtaking backdrop of the Outeniqua Mountains.
Don’t be fooled by the village-like feel though, George has a sophisticated infrastructure and offers all the modern-day conveniences of the bigger and more crowded cities. It is a prized holiday destination among visitors and a cherished place the local residents call home.
