Escorted South Africa Safari - Garden Route & Eastern Cape

Escorted South Africa Safari - Garden Route & Eastern Cape
A holiday in South Africa wouldn't be complete without a visit to the vibrant city of Cape Town, nestling in the shadow of Table Mountain and a gateway to the starkly beautiful Cape Peninsula. Your classic escorted tour of the Garden Route starts in Cape Town and ends in the friendly city of Port Elizabeth. You take in all the highlights from the evocative, sepia-tinged landscapes of the Klein Karoo to the jewel-bright greens and blues of the Garden Route forests and lagoons. Finishing with a "Big 5" Safari in the malaria-free Eastern Cape is the perfect way to end your anniversary holiday in the "Rainbow Nation". South Africa has a wealth of attractions that bring travelers back time and time again, and a holiday here will allow you to experience much of what this wonderful country has to offer at very good value to our Euro!
Top Trip Attractions:
- The exquisite beaches along the Garden Route, particularly Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Tsitsikamma, are absolutely unmissable. Some of them can get quite busy in the high season however, so Wilderness is a quieter, but no less beautiful, option. 
- Cape Town is the ultimate introduction to the complex nation that is South Africa. The natural diversity shown in its splendid beaches, sheer cliffs and incredible Table Mountain give you an idea of the variety of the country’s landscapes.
- Amakhala Game Reserve may be smaller than some of the more famous national parks, but this just makes its game viewing more intimate. It’s often not as busy either, so it’s a great option for a South Africa safari.
Best Time To Visit - May to October: The dry season is the best time to spot wildlife on a South Africa safari and enjoy the beautiful coastline. It’s also the low season for tourists, before the busy festive period.

Our Opinion
Andre - “Any holiday in South Africa wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Cape Town, nestling in the shadow of the Table Mountain. Let that be your gateway to the starkly beautiful Cape Peninsula, and the culinary delights of the Winelands. As you continue east you’ll take in the highlights of the wonderful Garden Route and a Safari in the Eastern Cape is a wonderful way to experience the African bush.”
