In Garden Route, visitors will find a number of charming settlements and towns worth exploring or even selecting as a main base for exploration of the rest of this picturesque region.

Mossel Bay, a beautiful seaside town, offers a sun drenched peninsula situated conveniently between Port Elizabeth and Cape Town. The warm and tranquil waters of the Indian Ocean and expansive stretches of north facing beaches provide a view that is truly incomparable. A small town harbor at heart, Mossel Bay is known for its warm hospitality and charm. If you are looking for a place to relax where there is no rushing and no hurrying, Mossel Bay is certain to be the perfect destination.

The natural beauty of Mossel Bay alone would be enough to commend it as a holiday resort; however, the rich and vibrant cultural history of Garden Route is also well represented here. There is certainly no lack of activities to keep you occupied in Mossel Bay. Stroll through museums, enjoy fabulous shopping or enjoy a big game adventure. There are also plenty of entertainment venues for all ages as well as fabulous restaurants offering cuisines for every taste. While Mossel Bay is known for the number of attractions which abound in this coastal paradise, it is definitely the relaxing pace of life that continues to attract visitors.

In Riversdale, you can soak up the tranquility of country living as fresh breezes caress your skin and treat yourself to the country cuisine for which the area has become known. The warm country hospitality will certainly live on in your memory for many years to come.

As a favorite of both nature and adventure lovers, Riversdale is a surprising blend of new and old. The area itself has earned its name due to the veritable floral paradise which exists here. The wealth of indigenous flora covering the mountains is certainly a treat for the senses.

Of course, if you are looking for excitement and adventure, you need look no further than the rugged 4x4 routes and opportunities to fish, hang glide, take a horseback riding safari or enjoy a number of other water sports. Enjoy one of the guided tours through one of the Fynbos export farms for a more leisurely pace while you enjoy your vacation.

The vibrant cultural heritage of Riversdale should not be overlooked; particularly the array of literature and artistic offerings. At the Julius Gordon Africana Centre, you can take advantage of the opportunity to view some of the most impressive and beautiful examples of South African art available. In fact, the centre has received international acclaim and frequently hosts well known artists from around the world. On the oldest street in Riversdale, Long Street, you can enjoy a leisurely tour of fabulous architecture. The elite of an era gone by once made their home here. Today, all of the homes residing on the northern end of Long Street date back to the mid-19th century.
