Garden Route National park : Great news for visitors to the Cape.
A new national park has been established along the Cape southern coast to boost tourism in one of the most visited parts of the country. Cape Town is the most favoured South African tourist destinations, but many visitors go on to the Game parks to our north. Now they can remain in the most beautiful part of our country and have a safari experience
The Garden Route, established on 6 March 2009 is located on one of the country's top tourist attractions, includes diverse and breathtaking scenery. The new Garden Route National Park, formed in part by incorporating existing smaller parks, includes indigenous forests, the Knysna estuary, the Wilderness lake areas, and protected marine areas around Tsitsikamma.
The geographical diversity of these various areas makes for an exceptional conservation model. There will be no other National Park in South Africa that will include the unique combination of marine, coastal, lakes, indigenous forests and mountain catchment areas. Now you can see bog Game, Knysna elephants and watch that massive visitor to our shore- the Southern Right Whale all in one park. This includes the otter trail, long regarded as a “must “ for avid hikers.
