Accept South Africa's Garden Route in its simplest terms—a winding trail that dots a line between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth—and you'd risk comparing it to any stretch of motorway. But, given that this particular expanse passes empty beaches, inviting towns, wildlife reserves, and tons of wineries, driving the Garden Route has been called the road trip of a lifetime.

"Sandwiched between majestic mountains and the Indian Ocean (think constant sea views), this 150-mile stretch of ancient indigenous forests, fynbos-covered peaks, golden beaches, and pristine lagoons earns its title," says Fodor's.

  • "The narrow coastal strip that forms the Garden Route stretches from the rural town of Heidelberg in the west to Storms River Mouth in the east; and from the shore of the Indian Ocean to the peaks of the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma coastal mountain ranges."

    -- Frommer's
