Garden Route Tours, The town and airport of George

George is a town found along the N2 freeway of South Africa and is situated close to towns like Mossel Bay and Wilderness which forms part of The Garden Route. The town is roughly 3.5 hours drive from Cape Town and is well-known internationally due to it's airport. George airport provides a comfortable half way stop between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth for those wishing to skip the road between Cape Town and Mossel Bay as they embark on their Garden Route tours.

From George one can view the majestic Outeniqua Mountains which take you to Oudtshoorn as you cross it. Oudtshoorn is a semi desert area which is in complete contrast to the lush Garden Route. Oudsthoorn is also the ostrich capital of South Africa and in fact, the world. Make sure to visit Oudtshoorn as part of our Garden Route tours as it provides magnificent sights and sounds and the landscapes are in direct contrast to that of The Garden Route.

Apart from being the capital city and geographical hub of the world renowned Garden Route, George is also situated in a picturesque environment on a coastal plateau between the Outeniqua Mountain Range and the Indian Ocean, causing the town and surrounding area to have a temperate climate throughout the year.

There is the Drostdy, a graceful old building that houses a museum, the George Museum itself, the Old Slave Tree of The Garden Route, a 186 year old oak tree that has an iron chain embedded in its trunk, the St Peter and St Paul Church, the oldest existing Roman Catholic church in South Africa, the St Mark's Cathedral - one of the smallest cathedrals in South Africa.

And do not forget the beaches at the secluded Victoria Bay - which is renowned for surfing, especially during winter months - and Herold's Bay, a small, sheltered holiday resort with large tidal pools, safe bathing and good angling opportunities. You can also find multiple lodges in the area where wildlife can be viewed, which can be included in our Garden Route Tours.

As for sport; George has 2 of the top 10 golf courses in South Africa and also offers flying, gliding, horse riding, squash, tennis and a variety of hiking trails and mountain biking tours.
