Tour & Safari
About this tour
Arguably one of the most dramatic roads in South Africa, this trip across the Garden Route will start off in Cape Town where you will have 4 full days to enjoy every special part of this vibrant town.
From there you will drive to the romantic Winelands for a visit to various wineries, Franschhoek, as well as the historic centre of Stellenbosch. We can arrange a pic nic for you or a lunch with a-view-to-die-for! This is the country of milk and honey!
From the Winelands you will drive along the Atlantic towards De Hoop Nature Reserve. From your room you will see nothing but Ocean and if you are in the right season, you might even see some jumping whales from your hot tub! You also are in the centre of shark haven… only a few steps away you can board a boat and swim with the sharks! Next on the route is one of the oldest towns in the country, Swellendam. This historic town is worthwhile visiting… some nice restaurants and you can visit the most southern tip of Africa from here: Cape Agulhas.
We have planned a stop in the gem of the Garden Route: Knysna. The lagoon, the rock formations and many activities to do makes Knysna an excellent base to explore this part of the Garden Route.
From George you fly to Johannesburg and after a short drive you arrive at an intimate luxurious tented camp with amazing views. At this lodge all meals and drinks are included and you can get ready to come eye-to-eye with the Big 5 in this malaria free area!
