The trip starts with a wine tasting in the heart of the inspiring Winelands around Cape Town. During the rest of the tour, you will often have the opportunity to choose how to discover YOUR Garden Route. If you like peacefulness, serenity and wildlife, you should enjoy canoeing while watching many birds in the Wilderness National Park and hiking in the indigenous forest of the Tsitsikamma Park. Why not enjoy the Addo Elephant National Park then? Its great animal diversity will allow you to see some of the most famous African creatures like lions, leopards, zebras, rhinos and of course elephants.
For the most audacious, the Garden Route is really overflowing with thrilling activities. At the Wilderness National Park, you will have the opportunity to decide if you want to glide among the forest on a Zipline or throw yourself into the incredible landscape thanks to the amazing bungee jump.

Day 1: Cape Town - Breede River Valley - Wilderness National Park - Sedgefield
Further, the Wilderness National Park is a greenary paradise like only the Garden Route can provide. The ride in a two-man canoe on one of the plentful stretches of water is the best way to be close to nature. Lakes, rivers, hiking trails, trees and birds will fill you with wonder. If you prefer, the park can also be explored on foot.
You will spend the night along the sea, at Sedgefield, where the way of life is slow, relaxing and in harmony with nature.
Day 2: Sedgefield - Bungee Jump - Tsitsikamma - Jeffreys Bay
The rest of the day will be a delight for thrill seekers. You can decide to slide on the 211 meters Waterfall Zipline above a secular forest, or to bungee jump from 216 meters which is the third highest jump in the world. Whatever it is, it will be an exhilarating experience! For the less adventurous, you can explore the park following the Big Tree Hike. Among baboons, antelopes and birds, the path leads to the Yellowwod, a majestic, impressive and ancestral tree estimated to be over 800 years old… A real treasure in the forest.
The day ends at the beautiful Jeffreys Bay. It is a paradise for all surfers and an ideal place to watch the sunset.
Day 3: J'Bay - Addo - Tsitsikamma
During this day, you can choose how to spend your day.
If you are an animal lover, the Addo Elephant National Park is the place you should go. As well as counting about 500 elephants roaming-free, it is one of the rare places where you can hope to see the Big 7 (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, buffalo, whale and shark). With an experienced guide, it is during a 2 hour bus safari that you will look for these creatures.
If you prefer to continue with more sporting activities, it is a golden opportunity to maybe try surf lessons or sandboarding. Whatever your choice, you won’t regret it!
