Nature is as natural to the Garden Route as shopping is to Sandton or catwalks are to Paris and Milan. The place is wall-to-wall nature, from indigenous forests to tranquil lakes and white beaches, from forest elephants, whales and dolphins to seahorses, rare butterflies and pansy shells.
It’s easy to work up an appetite on the Garden Route, what with the glut of forest hikes, beach walks, water sports and adventure sports on offer. Here are a few of my favourite refueling stops for a food feast.
As you will know from the previous post, I’m a sucker for the delights of the Wilderness–Knysna section of the Garden Route National Park. And there are lots and lots of them.
It doesn’t matter how often you’ve been to the Wilderness–Knysna area on the Garden Route, it always has the power to enchant and amaze.
