What to Expect
This 7-day tour highlights South Africa's southernmost coastal areas and national parks. There are tons of activities available to you, including the highest bungee jump in the world at Bloukraans Bridge, hiking in the Tsitsikamma National Park, Cango Caving and an ostrich farm visit in Oudtshoorn. And don't forget wine tasting near Stellenbosch! We'll also throw in some spectacular scenery for exceptional photographic opportunities and you'll be guaranteed to meet some interesting locals en-route.
In the afternoon, we visit the Addo, famed for the elephants after which the park was named. A recent expansion has seen Addo grow to become the third largest of South Africa’s National Parks. The unique vegetation of Addo supports a wide variety of wildlife and we will spend the afternoon in search of the animals that call the park home.
Travelling through the valley of the Klein Karoo, we follow the winding tarmac of Route 62 today.
Road trips in South Africa are an exploration of the rural highlights that dot the lesser-known byways of the land. And no journey would be complete without sampling the offerings of a “Padstal” along the way. These small farm stalls offer a selection of homemade treats and bakes and are an important cog in the economies of rural towns.
One of the more quirky highlights today is Ronnie’s Sex Shop, not a sex shop at all, but a rather interesting country pub!
Next we stop at the largest breeding colony of the African Penguin, Stony Point Nature Reserve before travelling along the coast to a wine farm in the Stellenbosch region to sample some chocolates and wine.
Your tour comes to an end upon arrival in the city centre of Cape Town.
