    Highlight of the Garden Route!

    The list of must-dos and must-sees there is ceaseless: Bungee Jumping from the Bloukrans Bridge is an awesome experience, Canyoning with AfriCanyon is a great activity you can´t do anywhere else in such a beautiful nature, visiting the animal sanctuaries is great not only for animal lovers and there are plenty of possibilities to go hiking through this paradise. I would recommend to stay there at least 3 days, rather more!
