Day by Day Itinerary Back to Trips for South Africa

Cape and Garden Route Explorer

This tour is one of our favorites with its focus on the scenic splendors and wonders of nature that comprise the south east coast of South Africa. You begin with an exploration of one of the most beautiful cities in the world - Cape Town. Visit the magnificent Table Mountain, walk through the historic streets or lie on one of the many splendid beaches. And of course not to be missed is the glorious Cape Winelands and accompanying gourmet restaurants. From Cape Town you proceed along the famed Garden Route, a region of great beauty and contrast, featuring unspoiled golden shores, beautiful indigenous forests and nature reserves, pellucid lakes, breathtaking mountain ranges and world-renowned hiking trails. Less than two hours from Cape Town you will find South Africa’s premier flora and marine eco-tourism destination providing you with an opportunity to experience the natural wonders of the marine, coastal and inland ecosystems of the Cape. You will want to allow yourself ample time to explore the many natural delights, sophisticated comforts and recreational activities of The Garden Route. Your tour concludes with a visit to one of the continent's southernmost game reserves, in the heart of South Africa's Eastern Cape; a district rich in history and blessed with abundant natural beauty. The twice-daily game drives in open 4x4 Land Rovers provide excellent opportunities to view the wildlife in its natural environment. The Cape and Garden Route Explorer is a truly unique experience of the treasures of South Africa.
