Garden Route Tours
Don’t let South Africa’s big 5, biltong, and big burley rugby players distract you from the country’s softer, more delicate side; the glimmering Garden Route. South Africa’s Garden Route is a coastal stretch in the Western Cape known for it’s sparkling ocean views, sprawling golf courses and luxury Garden Route resorts. Driving in a car and stopping at all the beautiful towns like Knysna or Mossel Bay easily accomplishes a Garden Route itinerary. But in our case, where driving with our kids sounds more like having two wildebeests strapped into car seats against their will, we skipped over the sights, did not pass go or collect $200, and went straight to the family holiday haven of Fancourt Golf Resort and Spa. Garden Route hotels come in as many shapes and sizes as there are birds in the African bush, but there was no doubt that the place for us was one with a spa, a kids’ club, gym and separate rooms for each family member to stretch out at night.
