We help plan your trip
A road trip through South Africa’s natural highlights
On your tour through the Garden Route, see the dramatics of a coastline full of lagoons, beaches, and mountain ranges. On a drive that sweeps the coastline you begin in Cape Town, a city that combines adrenaline rushed activities with the striking sight of a granite mountain. Go further to Stellenbosch, a town where vineyards roll out around you to carpet the land. End your tour with a safari game drive and meet the “Big Five.” Take pause to look up in wonder as night falls to fill the sky in stars as you enjoy a meal in the wild.

Begin your tour in the port city of Cape Town at the southern tip of South Africa. The city rests between the South Atlantic and Indian Ocean, and a cable car ride to the peak of Table Mountain is a great way to take in the dramatic sight of the “Mother City” as it slopes from beach to granite rock. Picnic on the green lawns of Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens after a canopy bridge saunter. At the V&A Waterfront, enjoy world-class cuisine such as fresh oysters and king prawns.
An hour’s drive east is the town of Stellenbosch. In the mountainous setting of the Western Cape, a region that produces world-class wines, hop on a bike and cruise between vineyards, taking pause to enjoy Cape Dutch architecture. Go for cheese and wine tasting at the Stellenbrau Brewery, and in the evening, after a hike through nature, enjoy prawn risotto with wine on an outdoor patio.
Cruise east to Oudtshoorn to meet the world’s largest bird as you take a tour of an Ostrich Show Farm. After an enchanting time at a family-run homestead, next it’s the Cango Caves. Enter chambers that date to the Middle Stone Age and look up at striking stalactites. End your time with a Meerkat Safari that reveals fun facts about creatures that move in groups known as mobs.
Next, drive to the Garden Route’s most charming town, Knysna. Pull on your boots and pack some flip flops as you enter Featherbed Nature Reserve, a place of sweeping beaches, dramatic coastlines, and wildlife. Hop on a catamaran and go whale watching at sea, or perhaps try catching your own for lunch. End at Mitchell’s Brewery with an award-winning beer in hand.
End a trip of a lifetime at Shamwari Private Game Reserve. On savannahs that combine luxury lodgings with nature, a safari game drive introduces you to the “Big Five” as you move across 7,000 hectares. Be on the lookout for lions, black rhino, and the white-starred robin as it hops from the branches of a vachellia karoo tree. End your time fine-dining on the savannahs of a stunning game reserve where monkeys play in trees and buffalo move in their thousands.
