South Africa is a country on the Southernmost tip of the African continent, marked by several distinct ecosystems. Forest and lagoons along the Garden Route; and the city of Cape Town, situated beneath the flat-topped Table Mountain. The Garden Route is home to some of South Africa’s finest coastal scenery, marine wildlife and forests. The Garden Route is also famous for its hardy fynbos floral kingdom, its secluded little bays and its year-round holiday frame of mind. And it's conveniently accessible from Cape Town.
