An exciting family adventure to discover South Africa's picturesque Garden Route. See elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard at Addo Elephant Park, as well as southern right whale and great white shark at Woody Cape - making 'The Big Seven'.
Explore the spectacular coast
View amazing wildlife
Discover the magic of Cape Town
See whales & sharks
One of the first stops on this exciting itinerary is Tsitsikamma, a highlight of the Garden Route, with a wonderful lagoon and forest to explore, perhaps on a tree-top canopy tour. At Knysna, you can go whale and dolphin watching, then it's time for a change of scene as you visit an ostrich farm in the Klein Karoo.
Finally, head to Cape Town, dramatically set between the Atlantic and Table Mountain. Many families like to spend extra time in Cape Town so you can extend your stay if you wish.
This is a varied self-drive itinerary to a malaria-free area, with an emphasis on the natural world: mountains, wildlife, forests, coast and marine life. As an alternative to self-drive we can arrange for a guide/driver to accompany you throughout the trip or for certain sections of your choice. Please contact us for more details.
