The Scents of South Africa

Tune in your senses to the invigorating natural perfume of South Africa's Garden Route.

Wander along the winding coastal pathways taking in this romantic stretch of the south east coast where the heady fragrance of indigenous flowers sweeps gently through the air.

Or take in the African Bush, where the scent of a myriad of animals by day gives way to the welcome smell of delicious home cooked meals under starlit African skies by night.

Plenty of time to gather your thoughts, and let South Africa’s aromas envelope you.
