Best time to visit
The Garden Route has a very mild climate (ranging between 20-30 degrees Celcius) most of the year. Late June/early July is usually a hive of activity with the Oyster Festival (cycle races, fun runs and don’t forget the oysters!). You’d want to book at least 6 months in advance to get close to the action.
