The wildlife is still very African though with the ostriches at Oudtshoorn and the herds of elephant at Addo awaiting you. Then top it all off with a visit to the Cape Winelands region to sample the local produce.

Itinerary

The following day enjoy an included tour to Bo Kaap (The Malay Quarter) which is situated on the slopes of Signal Hill above the city centre. Continue to the cable car station at the foot of Table Mountain for a ride to the top for some amazing views across Cape Town and a glass of sparkling wine. Continue to the V&A Waterfront for an included Welcome Dinner.

Days 4 - 5: The West Coast

Distance: 159km (99miles)

Transfer to the Motorhome depot where you will collect your motorhome and start your overland journey to the West Coast with its wide, open spaces, charming fishing villages, unspoilt beaches and abundant animal and marine life.

Included is a visit to the West Coast National Park. Prepare yourself for endless natural beauty, a string of secret beaches, un-crowded braai spots, tons of exhilarating outdoor adventures, and some of the best wildflower spotting in the land – these are just some of the wondrous attractions that make this beautifully preserved, unblemished paradise on earth the ultimate escape.

We also suggest taking the 35 minute drive from Langebaan to Paternoster for a visit to the beautiful Fishing Village town. Take a walk through the beautiful Cape Columbine Nature Reserve and enjoy a crayfish lunch before heading back to camp.

Day 6: Touws River

Distance: 266km (165miles)

The pretty little railway town of Touws River sits between Barrydale and Ladismith in the little Karoo. Touws River is set on the fringes of the Klein Karoo, basically a valley sandwiched between the Langeberg and the Outeniqua Mountains, which in turn separates the Little Karoo from the Garden Route’s coastal strip.

Days 7 - 8: Oudtshoorn

Distance: 253km (157miles)

On the journey to Oudtshoorn make a stop at Cango Caves for an included Heritage Tour. The 20 million-year-old Cango Caves system consists of a series of hidden chambers cut deep into a thick limestone rock layer, it is one of the world’s great natural wonders, sculptured by nature through the ages.

Oudtshoorn is a town in the Klein Karoo area of South Africa’s Western Cape. It’s known for its ostrich farms and rests along the Route 62 wine route.

The following day we have included a morning tour to an Ostrich Farm where you can learn more about these remarkable birds and their fascinating nature. In the afternoon we’ll continue to Bufflesdrift Game Lodge to meet Jabari, Bulelo and Malaika, three orphan elephants originally from Kruger National Park, as part of their daily routine you will have the opportunity to give them a brush.

Days 9 - 10: Camdeboo National Park

Distance: 317km (197miles)

As you leave Oudtshoorn behind your journey will take you via Meirings Poort where you can stop at the beautiful Meirings Poort Waterfall. Continue to Camdeboo National Park boasts 43 species of mammals, 336 species of plants and over 225 recorded species of bird life as well as the Cape Buffalo which is one of the Big Five.

The following afternoon we have included a guided tour to the Valley of Desolation which starts with an introduction to the Fauna and Flora of the Graaff-Reinet region. Game may be spotted on the drive up to the Valley of Desolation such as Kudu, Blesbuck, Springbok and Mountain Rhebuck. At the Toposcope a brief overview of the surrounding mountains is given, as well as information on the way of life of the people of Graaff-Reinet.

Days 11 - 12: Addo Elephant Park

Distance: 243km (151miles)

Discover...Experience...Explore a world of diversity in one Park. Now the third largest national park in South Africa, Addo Elephant National Park has expanded to conserve a wide range of biodiversity, landscapes, fauna and flora. A unique feature is the waterhole lookout point, floodlit at night, within the camp as well as the underground hide, allowing close encounters with wildlife at the waterhole. The evenings are punctuated with the calls of lion, spotted hyena, and jackal while francolin and bokmakierie herald each dawn.

Experience a half day guided Addo Elephant National Park Safari, giving you the best chance to see all that it has to offer. Not only do the guides have trained eyes for spotting wildlife but they also have local knowledge regarding animal identification, local history, vegetation, local culture and plenty of local stories to round off a great tour.

Days 13 - 15: Garden Route

Distance: 330km (205miles)

Continue your journey from Addo to Sedgefield which forms part of the Garden Route of South Africa. Travel through Port Elizabeth, Jeffreys Bay, Storms River and Knysna. Make a stop in Tsitsikamma and visit the Tsitsikamma National Park and take a short hike and visit The Big Tree. Continue through the town of Knysna and enjoy lunch at one of the many restaurants located in the Waterfront.

High on the must-see lists of most visitors to South Africa is the Garden Route, and with good reason: you can’t help but be seduced by the glorious natural beauty. The Garden Route's range of topography, vegetation, wildlife, and outdoor activities is remarkable. The coast is dotted with excellent beaches, while inland you’ll find picturesque lagoons and lakes, rolling hills and eventually the mountains of the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma ranges that divide the verdant Garden Route from the arid Little Karoo. Visit Knysna and enjoy an included trip to the Featherbed Nature Reserve.

Days 16 - 17: Whale Coast

Distance: 387km (240miles)

Travel to Hermanus, also known of the Whale Coast of South Africa. The main towns that form the Whale Coast are Kleinmond, Hermanus, Stanford and Gansbaai; but the Cape Whale Coast is in fact made up of a collection of villages, farms, rivers, bays, coves and valleys – each filled with its own special magic. Explore the whales, sharks, wine routes, fynbos, birding, golf courses, penguins, mountain biking, hiking trails and adventure activities in this beautiful region, the Cape Whale Coast.

Hermanus is the whale watching capital of South Africa and the whale season is generally from June - mid December every year and whales can often be spotted from land. In whale watching season we highly recommend a whale watching cruise which can be anything from 1 ½ - 3 hours in duration depending of the sightings.

Days 18 - 19: Cape Winelands

Distance: 97km (60miles)

Depart Hermanus for Stellenbosch and make a stop at Stoney Point, home to an African Penguin Colony. Roughly 3,600 penguins now live at Stony Point's old whaling station, increasing from the two who originally ventured here in 1985. A wine tasting is included at Lanzerac Wine Estate this afternoon, home to the world’s first bottled Pinotage and one of the oldest heritage farms in the Western Cape dating back to 1692, and which has been cultivating award-winning wines for decades.

Spend some time exploring Stellenbosch or perhaps take the short trip to Franschhoek where you can take the Franschhoek Wine Tram. On the final evening there will be a chocolate and wine pairing followed by a farewell dinner at Spier Wine Estate.

Days 20 - 21: Stellenbosch to Cape Town

Distance: 51km (32miles)

Check-out and drive to the Motorhome Depot close to Cape Town International Airport where you will return your rental vehicle. From here you will be transferred to Cape Town International Airport. Check in for your international flight.
