Garden Route tours travelling past Riversdal, South Africa

Located at the foot of Sleeping Beauty mountain - a popular landmark in South Africa - Riversdal is known as the Flower Paradise of the Garden Route due to the variety of indigenous fynbos which covers the mountainous landscapes and surrounds. This flower spectacle is in full bloom during the winter months of South Africa and provide pleasant views on Garden Route tours during this time.

Riversdal offers something for every person and tourists are always welcome. A growing country town found on the N2 motorway between the Langeberg mountains and the ocean, and an easy drive to surrounding towns makes Riversdal a perfect rest stop on Garden Route tours or overnight base for discovering the area. Riversdal ideal location brings you within a short distance of seaside towns namely Stilbaai and Witsand and it is also an ideal spot for one-day tours to enjoy the selection of Garden Route and South Africa nature, interesting towns, historic buildings, hiking tours and majestic mountain views with adventures such as 4x4 tours, abseil activities, waterfalls, horse tours, game drives and safaris, some of the best fresh water fishing in South Africa and water activities, all of which can be included on Private Garden Route tours..

Riversdal was discovered in the early 1800's and named after Governer Harry Rivers, a colonial official of South Africa back then. It is located on the busy N2 Highway and usually a stopping point during our Garden Route Tours.

For the South Africa enthusiast there are many historic pieces of furniture to be seen in museums along with many old buildings and residences going back to the early inhabitants along The Garden Route. Riversdal was also the home of J. Volschenk, a famous South Africa painter.

Hiking trails and tours of a selection of distances and days could be booked here and is a must for the hiker and bird watchers along with various Big 5 Safaris in the Garden Route and surrounding areas.
