Where to Start the Garden Route 

If you are flying into South Africa it would probably be best that you fly into Cape Town and hire a car at Cape Town International Airport. Then you can make your way up the garden route by starting in Cape Town and ending where ever you feel like you have seen enough. 

Another way of doing the garden route is starting at the top and working your way down. To do this you can either fly into Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha). If you do this you can hire a car at Port Elizabeth airport.
