Day 1
Fly overnight to Cape Town.
Day 2
Collect your hire car on arrival OR be met by one of our representatives and start with four nights in Cape Town. Cape Town has got a huge range of wonderful hotels, from grand, luxurious affairs, to smaller, more characterful guesthouses and B&Bs.
Day 3
Spend a full day exploring the beautiful Cape Peninsula. It’s particularly rewarding to explore the hidden beaches and paths as well as the headline sights like Cape Point and the penguins of Boulder’s Beach.
Day 4
Take a Uthando project tour to learn more about the townships and how people are seeking to improve their lot there. We have also compiled a list of our favourite restaurants in Cape Town and we’d be happy to make recommendations and reserve tables for you.
Day 5
Robben Island and Table Mountain are two of the city's icon and combine to make a great day.
Day 6
Drive to the Winelands spending two nights here. Choose from intimate guesthouses in pretty towns, luxurious boutique hotels or more remote wine farms to stay in.
Day 7
Continue to explore the Winelands on your own, maybe visiting Camberley or trying Waterford's Chocolate & Wine pairings. The Winelands has a very high concentration of world-class restaurants and we’d be happy to make recommendations and reservations for you.
Day 8
Drive to the Overberg, an overnight stop on your way east; if you set off early enough, you can squeeze a visit to the De Hoop Nature Reserve into your day. The town of Swellendam, although small, has a number of beautiful boutique hotels and guesthouses, making it the ideal place to break your journey to the Garden Route.
Day 9
Continue to the Garden Route, where you spend three nights. Choose from hotels on the beach, in the heart of the pretty towns, or on secluded islands and in the forests that carpet the hills of the region.
Day 10
There are some amazing excursions to fill your days with on the Garden Route. We particularly recommend, in season, whale watching (June – December) or perhaps exploring the back roads in the forests.
Day 11
We’d always recommend you take a day to head to the Crags near Plettenberg Bay and visit the Elephant Sanctuary, Monkeyland, the Birds of Eden and the Tenikwa Big Cat Experience. Here you’ll also find Bramon, the Garden Route’s only wine estate and somewhere that serves an amazing tapas lunch!
Day 12
As you head to the Eastern Cape for your safari, maybe stop in the Tsitsikamma Forest or on the dizzying Bloukrans Bridge. Spend two nights on safari where there are a range of lodges to choose from, to suit all budgets and tastes: but wherever you stay, excitement is guaranteed!
Day 13
Safari is hugely rewarding, with game drives getting you incredibly close to the big game, and bush walks introducing you to the smaller residents of the bush.
Day 14
Drop your car off at Port Elizabeth airport before flying home overnight, via Johannesburg.

For those who only have two weeks off, this tour ensures you get a proper feel for the country, experiencing something of everything it has to offer. Cape Town is an integral part of any trip to South Africa and so you start in this cosmopolitan and beautifully-located city, before heading out of the city to the Winelands which offers the visitor beautiful and historic vineyards to visit and award winning wines to taste. After stopping to explore the underrated Overberg area, spend sometime really getting to know the wildlife, forests, lagoons and beaches of The Garden Route, before continuing to the Eastern Cape for what many regard as the absolute highlight of a trip: some time on safari.
