An adventurous self-drive safari through South Africa’s popular Garden Route, starting in Cape Town and ending in Port Elizabeth – 6 Days

Tour Highlights

Port Elizabeth –  Known as one of the largest cities in South Africa, Port Elizabeth is situated in the Eastern Cape Province, 770 km east of Cape Town.

Tsitsikamma Forest – The region of Tsitsikamma is a delight for travellers on a South African safari through the Garden Route, with its protected indigenous forest that contains the most amazing array of vegetation.

Knysna – Most famously, Knysna is known for its warm-water estuary that passes between two large headlands known as the Knysna Heads. The Heads boast a breath-taking lookout point, which gives visitors the optimal vantage point from which to appreciate the open ocean, as well as the chance to enjoy a meal at restaurants that offer stunning views and good, wholesome food.

Oudtshoorn – Here you can take a visit into the popular Cango Caves, which measure over four kilometers and are made up of a network of extensive tunnels and chambers. They boast spectacular trails amongst magnificent limestone formations and are located 29-kilometers outside of Oudtshoorn, an area well-known for its ostrich farming.

Bloukrans River – Daredevils can get their pulses racing with a leap off of the Bloukrans Bridge, known as the world’s highest bungee jump bridge.

Monkeyland, Knysna – Here you will be taken on a monkey safari in the forest to learn about these fascinating creatures.
