The hive of activity in recent years along the Garden Route has become pretty well known. As people begin to speak about the extraordinary things to do from kayak and lilo tours to black horse trails, the activities just become more and more. While there’s definitely no shortage of things to do in these wonderful places, the Garden Route will also offer you many awe-inspiring places to go to in order to just sit back, relax and take in each and every sunset with a few deep breaths as an activity.
Tsitsikamma Canopy Tours / Garden Route
Swing through the forest beneath a lush canopy of trees with the Tsitsikamma zipline while experiencing the secrets of this indigenous jungle. Zipline past giant Yellow Wood trees, Hard Pear trees and other interesting flora. Remember to keep your eyes peeled for the Knysna Loerie and the Narina Trogon as you traverse through the Tsitsikamma air.
Kayak and Lilo Tours / Garden Route
Start out at the Untouched Adventures shop where you’ll meet the friendly team whose job it is to kit you out for your adventure. Then kayak up the great Storms River Mouth, while you marvel at the magnificent size of the cliffs. Previous experience isn’t necessary in any of this. Explore the deep pools that can’t be reached with kayaks. This will involve climbing over some rocks and then inflating a custom-built lilo in order to continue your journey.
Hike in Robberg Nature Reserve / Garden Route
About a few kilometres from the well-known coastal town Plettenberg Bay is the Robberg Nature Reserve which is a hiker’s paradise.

Whales are common sights too.
