9 Days 8 Nights
The best of South Africa’s beautiful coastline starts with the exploration of the appropriately named Garden Route and takes you along a truly heavenly part of South Africa for a truly memorable experience. Arriving in Port Elizabeth, you would be transported from along the start of the Garden Route at Storms River and the ancient indigenous Tsitsikamma Forest, a world of giant trees, forest ferns, clear streams and brightly coloured birds. Via a unique and fun canopy tour, you will experience all the beauty and splendour that this forest has to offer. To ensure your adrenalin really gets worked up, we will visit the Bloukrans Bridge where you have the opportunity to try the world’s highest commercial bungee jump at 216m!
 
Step into a different world in Plettenberg Bay when you enjoy a 2-hour adventure into the river ziplining, jumping and splashing your way to experience nature at its best. A more relaxed afternoon awaits as you visit the gentle giants at the Elephant Park for an informative guided and interactive tour. Set off on an eco-adventure as you enjoy a ferry on the Knysna lagoon followed by a 4x4 drive up to the reserve where you enjoy spectacular views. There is an optional walk through a coastal forest into ancient seacaves with gorgeous views. All this rounded off with a yummy buffet lunch. Departing Knysna, you explore the Garden Route as you visit a master coffee roaster in Wilderness for a unique coffee tasting experience. You would venture into South Africa’s ostrich capital in Oudtshoorn which would necessitate an opportunity to learn about and interact with these big birds at the ostrich farm. A visit to the wildlife ranch will allow for close encounters with big cats and reptiles in a truly memorable experience. You make your way to Cape Town along a scenic route and possibly spot some whales between June and November!
 
Arriving in South Africa’s Mother City, you will visit places of sheer amazement and beauty. You will be walked through the richness of the local Muslim community in Bo Kaap and District Six and visit the first masjid built in South Africa over 200 years ago. A spectacular shoreline journey of the Cape Peninsula will take you to Cape Point, the very tip of the continent of Africa as well as scenic towns of Hout Bay and Simonstown. Drive along one of the most spectacular mountain edge routes in the world at Chapman’s Peak. Visit the penguin nature reserve and see these delightful creatures in their natural habitat. A tour of this majestic city is incomplete without scaling the heights of the iconic landmark, Table Mountain. Soak in the vibe and atmosphere at the V&A Waterfront and enjoy relaxation time at the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens. South Africa’s Coastline awaits you…in all it’s Splendour!
