Garden Route Trail
Discover our Passion for Nature in the Garden Route.



Guiding with Distinction.


The sheer range of environmental variation in the Garden Route offers visitors to the region the option of forest, wetland, dune, Fynbos, estuary, riverine, montane and coastal experiences without having to travel vast distances. It is on this foundation of diversity that we have developed our range of guided walks, mountain biking and birding in the Garden Route. The combination of natural variation fused with our passion for nature and our scientific field research background, has allowed Mark and Amanda develop Garden Route Trail into the unsurpassed leaders of informative nature guiding in the Garden Route and Karoo.
