Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Cape Town

On arrival at Cape Town airport, you will be met and transferred to your city centre hotel.

The heritage Inn on the Square opens onto bustling Greenmarket and is within walking distance of most of Cape Town’s tourist attractions. After a first day exploring, maybe sit back and let others do the work on a guided day tour to the Cape of Good Hope or Winelands, or a thought provoking cruise to Nelson Mandela’s island prison.

Day 5 - Garden Route

You will be picked up this morning for the start of your small group tour along South Africa’s famous Garden Route. Enjoy the company of others as you visit an ostrich farm. The impressive Cango Caves and the stunning scenery and attractions around Knysna and Plettenberg.

Your hotel at Hog Hollow is set in its own private nature reserve, with amazing views from the terraces. Your tour will finish this afternoon at Port Elizabeth for a night at the Beach Hotel in popular Summerstrand.

Day 9 - Kariega Settlers Drift

After breakfast, you will transfer to the picturesque Kariega Settlers Drift.
