The Garden Route

Mossel Bay is the gateway to the entire Garden Route. The Garden Route is a corner of Africa that is so astonishingly beautiful that it has been called “A Taste of Eden”. It is a mosaic of silent, mysterious forests, sweeping lakes and wetlands, empty, unspoiled beaches and narrow, winding passes that lie between Gouritsmond in the West and Storms River in the East.

African Oceans Manor is situated in the heart of the Garden Route, surrounded by a number of popular destinations where there is plenty to do and see. There are many day-excursion options to all the surrounding towns and areas, giving you plenty to do while staying in our luxury suites. Three very popular activities include Golf in the Garden Route, Mountain Biking in the Garden Route and Great White Shark cage diving.  Be sure to check out these pages for more information.

Also very popular is the St. Blaize Hiking Trail which can also be run. The full route is 14km and stretches all the way to Dana Bay. The route has a few exits, so if you do not want to complete the whole route, you have a lot of options available. On this trail you will see fynbos, but the most breathtaking experience is, the views from the high cliffs. This is a must when you visit Mossel Bay.  Anyone with a fair level of fitness will enjoy this route.
