This Garden Route & Addo Park Tour is highly recommended if you like untamed nature and contact with animals.
Enjoy all the diversity of this fascinating country touring the south of South Africa. From Cape Town, you will see the great green stretches of vineyards and the yellow and orange semiarid landscapes of the Klein Karoo. The Cango Caves are an eye-opening place to see what Mother Nature created. Wilderness and Tsitsikamma National Parks along this road will allow you to explore lush forests bordered by the sea or hidden lakes and estuaries that you can discover thanks to several hiking paths. Try activities like canoeing, ziplining or bungee jumping, all of which are good opportunities to see the nature from another angle while making incredible memories.
The Indian Ocean is never very far off the Garden Route. Take time to have a walk on the fine sandy beach of Jeffreys Bay, or surf to try to dominate the waves. At sunset, the red and orange sky on the warm ocean is just amazing!
The animal lovers won’t be disappointed either. You will watch the wildlife during a bus safari at the Addo Elephant National Park, but also have the opportunity to approach them in their natural environment. Feeding an elephant, touching a cheetah or simply seeing a white lion does not happen every day!
