Garden Route to the Cape

A photo trip through the Garden Route from Durban to Cape Town.
The "Garden route itself only starts from after Port Elizabeth down to Cape Town, but with such lush greenery from Durban till the Cape, one can call the entire 1600km's of the N2 (National Road 2) the garden route. I broke the drive into 2 days.

Heres a photo collection of my recent trip which had me stopping at various towns & city's & eventualy ending up in Cape Town where I spent 12 days. Enjoy

The Route

Farmlands



Umtata



Port Alfred













P.E da windy city, & it does get windy!

Drive along the beach front.



























Into the City







cranes of the stadium





Van Stadens bridge (highest bridge in the Southern Hemisphere)



Jeffereys Bay

























Going over Storms River bridge























Knysna







































































































Strand

I must say, besides the main beach road, the rest of Strand is'nt very exciting.













All those shots were taken from this bridge, perfect way to enter CT!!!

Very nice tour, but WAY too many pics.

My browser had a hard time downloading all 35MB of them, and i have a 20 mbit cable connection...
