What to Expect
The 5-Day Garden Route and Addo South African Adventure is a fast-paced, adventure-packed tour showcasing the best of what the African continent has to offer.

Day 1: Visit a colony of endangered African Penguins in Betties Bay, followed by lunch in Hermanus. Hermanus is known for being a location where you can see Southern Right Whales who are usually spotted from July to November. Continue your journey on to Cape Agulhas, the furthest Southern point of the African continent. Spend the night in Cape Agulhas and enjoy a traditional potjie (South African stew) for supper.

Day 2: Cross the mountains towards the Little Karoo, a semi-desert area with a very different landscape from the coastline. Sample local wine in the area and continue on to explore the Cango Caves. Spend the night in Oudtshoorn, known as the Ostrich Capital of the World, and sample ostrich kebabs for supper.

Day 3: Venture back to the coastline and experience a canoe ride through the Wilderness National Park on the Touw River. Explore the park and it's native forest, waterfall and rock pools. In the afternoon, visit the famous seaside town of Knysna, enjoy lunch or shopping at the Knysna Waterfront. Enjoy a typical African barbeque for dinner and spend the night in Myoli Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Day 4: Travel to the Tsitsikamma National Park, known for its beautiful coastline by the Indian Ocean and native forest. Feel free to take some leisure time for hiking, crossing a suspension bridge, swimming or simply enjoying a drink overlooking the ocean. In the afternoon, explore the Eastern Cape, and spend the night in a working citrus farm in the Addo area.

Day 5: Spend the morning on a game drive in the Addo Elephant National Park, home to amazing wildlife such as lions, leopards, buffaloes, rhinos and more than 600 elephants. After an exciting morning of game viewing, clients will be dropped off at the location of their choice in Port Elizabeth, where the tour ends between approximately 1pm and 2pm on Friday
