The Garden Route with Citiliner: Plettenberg Bay and the surrounds!

The Garden Route of the Southern Cape is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful in the world: Lush forest and spotless beaches make it one to remember.

Slap bang in the middle of it all is Plettenberg Bay – a visit to consider if you’re heading through by bus.

As one of the most affordable ways to get there, Citiliner has picked out four things to do if you’re nearby the Garden Route. All are brilliant and all are beautiful:

Head to Bloukrans for an epic view. Bungee jump if you’re brave!

The Bloukrans Bridge is one of the highest in the world and bridges a valley of epic proportions. The Tsitsikamma mountains surrounding it are so beautiful that just viewing it from above might be enough.

But, if you’re brave, take the plunge – the bungee jump is the highest bridge jump in the world and is just a stone’s throw from Plett.

Hike the Robberg Nature Reserve. Your soul deserves it.

A few hours hike in the Robberg is moving: Here, experience nature at its finest right on Plett’s front door. This is one to stretch the legs and one for those who find peace in nature.

The seal colony nearby is fantastic to see, but look out for whales too! This is a hotspot.

Visit the Birds of Eden. Monkey World is right next door!

For an animal experience that will make you smile, Monkey World might be one of the cutest: This extraordinary visit will leave you refreshed, with a newfound admiration for our primate cousins.

Next door, the largest aviary in the world is one to savour. 2.3 hectares of indigenous forest houses some of the most beautiful birds from across the world.

Visit one of Plett’s many beaches. These are some of the best in the country.

The beaches that span Plett and its surrounds are skirted by lush forest and endless sunset walks. So grab the family and find a picnic spot – the sun rarely lets you down!

Several blue flag beaches are on offer, from Robberg to Nature’s Valley so be prepared to be overwhelmed. Make sure though to keep safe in the waves and look out for designated swimming areas.

The Garden Route boasts unbelievable beauty and is best experienced first-hand. Well placed then, Plettenberg Bay is the perfect launch pad to get involved. So get there safely and affordably – get there with Citiliner!
