The Garden Route is one of our two focus areas. We have a number of great volunteer projects in this area, especially in and around Plettenberg Bay. Volunteers from a number of projects all share the same accommodation and a Good Hope Volunteers coordinator looks after the volunteers and the projects.
The Garden Route is a popular scenic tract of the south-eastern coast of South Africa. It stretches from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the Storms River on the edge of the Eastern Cape. It includes towns such as Mossel Bay, Knysna, Oudtshoorn, Plettenberg Bay and Nature's Valley. The towns and communities along the Garden Route are quaint and inviting, the people are friendly and there are numerous activities to choose from for the avid adventure traveller and nature lover.
