While staying over at Pine Lodge, explore all surrounding tourist towns in close proximity of about 30 minutes to one hour’s drive from us. Having a good time with your family shouldn't cost a fortune, so we sourced some of the very best family experiences to do in and around the marvellous Garden Route, along South Africa’s South coast, for under R160.

Whether you're into outdoor adventure, good food, science, fiction, art or going to the movies - we've got the best of the Garden Route on a budget: (prices might differ)
