#TrekSouthAfrica explores the Garden Route

Meandering along the Western Cape coast from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth, the Garden Route is famed for its lush indigenous forest, secluded lagoons and stunning beaches. The #TrekSouthAfrica team was fortunate enough to have explored it during their six month trip around South Africa. Here’s a video compilation of the best moments of their time there.

Traveling through the Garden Route is always better if you have a reliable car, if you need one, you’ll be happy to know that car rental Cape Town is cheap and easy.
