Why this tour

This Cape Town Garden Route tour combines the best of South Africa’s tourist spots, showing off treasured local gems along the way. Spend 9 days being captivated by the magnificent landscapes, the tranquillity of the wildlife, and the vibrant city life. 

You’ll start your trip to Cape Town, where you can explore the Mother City in all her glory. Take a city tour on your first day and discover the oldest garden in the country along with Cape Malay culture, and stop in at the Castle of Good Hope. Then, enjoy a free day and tick off all the must-see attractions that grab your fancy, from the Two Oceans Aquarium to the Boulders Beach penguin colony and everything in between. 

After an exciting Cape Town tour, you’ll head out to the Winelands, where Stellenbosch will entice you with its locally-made wines. Spend a night in Hermanus, the best place to catch sightings of whales. Afterwards, make your way through the small town of Swellendam to the coastal Mossel Bay. This is where your Garden Route tour really begins. 

The Garden Route officially starts in Mossel Bay, so it makes for the perfect beginning to this leg of the tour. Carrying on along the coast, you’ll discover wildlife in Knysna, trek through the Tsitsikamma Nature reserve, and even go bungee jumping - if you dare! 

Your Garden Route itinerary will then take you down the Fruit Route, where you’ll visit the Oudtshoorn Ostrich Farm. Enjoy the Karoo’s rugged beauty and visit the well-known Cango Caves while here. The tour ends in George, where you’ll get one last look at the gorgeous Garden Route.
