 In Epic Things to Do

“For me, the number one attraction in the Garden Route is definitely the excellent golf courses,” said Jens Grospitch when we met him Berlin just after his recent trip to South Africa.

Here are Jens’s favourite 5 Garden Route attractions:

Pezula and Simola Golf Courses

Jens really enjoyed the golf at Pezula Championship Course on the Knysna cliff-tops with views of both the lagoon and ocean. The signature holes on this Par 72 Links course are number 13 and 14. Jens also enjoyed the spectacular scenery and challenging Parklands course at Simola.

Birds of Eden

Birds of Eden is the world’s largest free flight bird sanctuary with over 3,500 birds. The two hectare dome covers a gorge of indigenous forest and is a great place to spot the indigenous Knysna tauraco (pictured above).  The aviary is located in the Crags near Plettenberg Bay.
