The Garden Route is like the hidden gem of South Africa. Tourists seem to head straight for the Kruger Park or Cape Town. In their rush to a safari or a cableway trip up Table Mountain, they miss this piece of paradise. If you love the outdoors, long white pristine beaches, adrenalin activities, lush green forests and beautiful mountain scenery, then this is the spot for you. The Garden Route is only 4 hours drive from CT and with an airport in George, it is easy to visit Cape Town and the Garden Route, while doing a safari at one of the local game lodges. This is an all-in-one stop for tourists who, once they have been here, tend to return as frequently as possible.
As the Rand/Euro or Rand/Dollar rate is very favourable for tourists, this is a great value-for-money destination. You just need to buy the air tickets, but the rest is dirt cheap for visitors spending Euros and Dollars.
Libertas Farmhouse is situated on a working dairy farm in the idyllic lakes area in the heart of the Garden Route.
It’s hard to say what’s more appealing at Libertas: the superb accommodation, the breath-taking landscape, or the long list of action-packed activities on tap within a radius of 80km.
This beautifully renovated and character-packed old homestead sleeps 10 guests comfortably (preferably 6 adults and 4 kids). The homestead reeks of simple elegance with its cement screeded floors, raw timber, earthy fabrics, original yellowwood beams and ceilings, oodles of space and country views.
The area is well-known as the perfect holiday getaway for South Africans, and international tourists are only starting to realize that the Wilderness area is actually a village dreams are made of.
