Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Cape Town

After your flight from the UK, you will be met at Cape Town airport for a private transfer to your hotel, your base for the next three nights.

Stay at one of our excellent waterfront location hotels, which are superbly located close to the shops, restaurants and galleries of the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. From here you can explore the city, the nearby beaches and the walking trails of Table Mountain, or head out to the Cape of Good Hope or Winelands on one of our exciting day tours and activities.

Day 4 - Garden Route Self Drive

Your car will be delivered to your hotel this morning for the start of your Exploring the Garden Route self drive. This stunningly beautiful region of South Africa includes forbidding mountains, steep gorges, forests, vineyards and magnificent coastal scenery.

Travel through the famous Winelands on to the quaint town of Montagu. Next join the popular Route 62 drive to Oudtshoorn, famous for its ostrich farms and Cango Caves. In Knysna enjoy the beautiful lagoon and nearby beaches, before continuing to Port Elizabeth, where you may like to stop at Tsitsikamma National Park on the way.

Day 9 - Port Elizabeth

Spend a night in Port Elizabeth where you can do some souvenir shopping or just chill out on the beach.
