Overview

Experience the beautiful Garden Route in 4 action-packed, all-inclusive days as you travel from the capital city, George, over the majestic Outeniqua Mountains to Oudtshoorn in the Little Karoo and then back to the coast to visit the indigenous forests of Tsitsikamma.

In Oudtshoorn you will be able to view African wildlife in a private game reserve where you will spend two nights in a luxury tent and be guided safari style on an authentic African Bush Safari drive. Here you will encounter elephants, rhinos, cheetahs and many antelope and bird species. You will also visit the world-renowned Cango Caves and learn all about the largest flightless bird at an ostrich farm. Get your hands dirty when you assist with the afternoon volunteer session at the game park.

On the way to Tsitsikamma you will travel along the scenic beach resort towns of Wilderness, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. On arrival at the Coastal Reserve with views of the ocean, forests and mountains, you will settle in for a one-night stay in one of the chalets or a luxury tent before departing on the first of many adventure activities in the area. These include the very informative Woodcutter’s Journey in the forest, zip-lining through the treetops, quad biking along a forest track and a downhill ride on a monster scooter bike. Visit Face Adrenaline to view the highest bridge bungee in the world and relax or shop for curios at the Knysna waterfront on the way back to George.
