Garden Route Tours, Mossel Bay

The small seaside town of Mossel Bay along the Garden Route looks out over stretched views of white, sandy beaches, and is one of the most popular holiday destinations of South Africa. It is also the official start of The Garden Route of South Africa where many tours overnight for a night or two to explore the history and scenery of Mossel Bay. The Cape Town Experience will share with you the sights and sounds of this town during our Garden Route tours.

Mossel Bay is rich with South African History, because it was here that Bartholomew Dias, the first European navigator to round The Cape, landed in 1488 to replenish his supplies and found water. The town in fact has richer history than Cape Town and visits at Mossel Bay by early European sailors happened about 200 years before they settled in The Mother City. Be sure to visit all the historical sights and sounds during our Garden Route tours, including the Diaz museum, with a life-size replica of his ship! The Cape Town experience offer this town and optional museum stop on all our Garden Route tours.
