The drive from Oudtshoorn to Plettenberg Bay takes you through the mountain pass back to the coast. This is the Garden Route Region of South Africa.
Spend today at the Crags making the most of the activities on offer in this area and the stunning surroundings. Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre and the Elephant Sanctuary are definitely worth a visit whilst here.
Exploring the Garden Route, perhaps taking a trip out to the ocean to look for dolphins, seals and if you`re lucky, whales. The walk around the Robberg peninsular is highly recommended.
