Great holiday, some long driving days so take a travel pillow. The drives are worth it though, wonderful sights, people, food and culture.

Garden Route Adventure was very good. It had good lodges included at the start of the tour, and scenic camp sites towards end of the tour. It was good having stays of 2 nights to explore the local areas. Some nights camping were cold, and some late arrivals during long days are a bit of a negative.
