Close your eyes and breathe in the fresh air as you embark on this small group tour, the perfect combination of relaxation and adventure. Starting from Addo Elephant National Park where the Big 5 can be spotted, to the iconic city of Cape Town stopping in Oudtshoorn and the Cape Winelands on the way. Challenge yourself to the highest bungee jump in the world (optional), go meandering in the pristine Tsitsikamma Forest or sit back and let the beauty of the Garden Route unfold before your eyes.
Day 1: Port Elizabeth – Addo Elephant National Park, South Africa
On arrival at Port Elizabeth Airport, you will be met and transferred to Addo National Park. Once you’ve settled in we spend the afternoon on a game drive in our tour vehicle, in search of elephant, black rhino, lion, buffalo and leopard. An evening spent at the floodlit waterhole allows us to watch the nocturnal animals and listen to their calls.
Accommodation: Addo Elephant Rest Camp or similar
Day 2 & 3: Tsitsikamma, South Africa
After breakfast our journey takes us to a region of startling beauty known as the Garden Route. We spend two nights in the Storms River Village at the heart of the Tsitsikamma Forest, where we will take a leisurely hike along one of the short trails. You will also have the opportunity to plunge off the world’s highest bungee jumping podium at the Bloukrans River (own expense).
Accommodation: Tsitsikamma Village Inn or similar

After visiting ‘The Heads’ on the Knysna Lagoon, we travel over the Outeniqua Mountains into the Little Karoo to Oudtshoorn. We take an insightful trip into the famous Cango Caves, with their impressive ancient stalagmites and stalactites before overnighting in the ostrich capital of the world.
