The Garden Route and the Little Karoo Places


Mossel Bay

Getting Here and Around

Mossel Bay, at the western end of the Garden Route, lies 384 km (238 mi) east of Cape Town along the N2 highway. It usually takes about four hours to drive from Cape Town to Mossel Bay—unless you stop to look at a view, have lunch, or browse in a roadside produce or crafts store.

Of all the buses servicing the Garden Route, only the Baz Bus goes into the town; the others stop at the Shell Voorbaai Service Station, at the junction of the highway and the road into town.
