There are several National Parks alone the Garden Route and all of them are very good and worth a visit. With limited time we could not do them justice.

Had a lovely hike. Half collared Kingfisher trail. Took about 4.5 hours including stops and a dip in the water and climbing to the lookout point. Really pretty.

Great location for day trip or overnight stay. We camped right on the river and the facilities were great. Perfect canoe or kayak location $6 for an hour.
