The Garden Route is famed for its natural beauty and makes for a stunning backdrop when travelling to its unofficial capital, Knysna. Approximately 500km (6hours) from Cape Town and 250km (3hours) from Port Elizabeth on the N2, it is an easy drive from wherever you are, against the backdrop of breath-taking scenery. Alternatively, you can fly into George Airport, which is only an hour’s drive away – or land on our helipad in your own helicopter!
