Pocket Guide: Hartenbos Garden Route Hotels

Hotels in the Heart of the Garden Route

The Garden Route, famed for its craggy mountains and the diverse beauty of its coastline, is one of the most scenic destinations in Western Cape. The best way to experience this spectacular corner of South Africa, which stretches from Mossel Bay to just beyond Plettenberg Bay, is to stay right in the middle of it.

Luckily, there’s a wide range of accommodation in the Garden Route area. If you’re looking for an upmarket option, you could stay in luxurious game lodges with uninterrupted views of the bush, or lakeside hotels and spas surrounded by woodland. And there’s plenty of Garden Route accommodation for budget travellers too – try searching for cheap hotels and friendly hostels in towns such as Knysna and George.

Outdoor Adventures from Your Garden Route Hotel

One of the best places to enjoy the Garden Route’s natural beauty is in the Wilderness section of Garden Route National Park, where you can hike across boardwalks that cross the rocky coastline. Head into Tsitsikamma for bungee jumping and forested walking trails, or hike through the fynbos, a stretch of scrubland covered in diverse and colourful flora.

A Hotspot for Western Cape Wildlife

The Garden Route is also a great place to encounter Western Cape wildlife. Meet ostriches in Oudtshoorn, elephants in Knysna and whales in Plettenberg Bay. Much of the accommodation in the area is located on game reserves, so you may even spot some of the so-called ‘Big Five’ from your hotel room.

Discover the Garden Route’s Cultural Attractions

Throughout the region you’ll find museums offering fascinating insights into South African culture and history. The Dias Museum Complex in Mossel Bay incorporates an aquarium, a replica ship, and buildings from the town’s trading past. Knysna is home to a fascinating disused prison, while George has a transport museum full of locomotives and carriages.

Pick a hotel in the Garden Route and you’ll be within easy reach of cultural attractions, spectacular hiking routes and wondrous wildlife. Use Expedia’s search filters to find the perfect Garden Route accommodation for you.
