This scenic country meander is situated halfway between Mossel Bay and George, and starts just outside charming Great Brak River. A circular road – both tar and gravel, about 40 km when measured from the N2 – takes one towards historic Friemersheim, past game farms and with great bird watching opportunities along the way.

Visit for a Fragrance Route map, contact details of venues that can be visited by appointment throughout the year, and information about the annual Fragrance Fest in February.

This route is very popular amongst local cyclists and there are also a number of farm accommodation options available in the area.

Seen right next to the road – on the Fragrance Route, in the Kleinvlei Road area.

The birdlife is spectacular. Photograph taken by Dirk Human on 20 March 2016 – more information click here.
