Episode Guide »
Surely one of the world's most beautiful drives, the Garden Route has nothing to do with gardens and everything to do with a wild, rugged, gorgeous coastline. Its name comes from the astounding variety of plant species found here, many indigenous only to the region. Surfers brave enormous waves, exotic birds watch visitors climb serpentine paths that rise above the coast, and charming, seaside resort towns accommodate guests. Shot during whale season, this episode stars 50-ton Right Whales performing their mating dances. And capping this visually stunning episode is a visit to heart South Africa's lush wine country, the village of Franschhoek.
