Full description
Immerse yourself in a world of animal adventure in South African Safari Parks and with a bit of luck, see the "Big Five" of the African wilderness: elephants, rhinoceroses, buffalos, lions and leopards, as well as giraffes, different species of antelope and zebras.

After pick-up from your hotel, head straight to the Garden Route Safari Lodge. Receive your room and enjoy a refreshing Buchu (a native flowering plant) cocktail, before joining the gamekeepers on a safari in an open Land Rover at midday. Enjoy the ride through the wonderful African nature and be on the lookout for glimpses of the animal kingdom. Back at the lodge later, enjoy an intimate evening buffet.

The next morning, start your day with an early safari. See the "Big Five" as well as gnus, giraffes, zebras, antelopes, and if you're lucky, perhaps a cheetah. Then after a hearty breakfast buffet, return to Cape Town at around 10:00. Enjoy the incredible view of this beautiful landscape on your return journey.

Drive over Franschhoek Pass into the historically-significant cities of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch and experience the singular flair of the old universities and the 200-year-old houses. Upon request, visit one of the most famous wineries and sample a few of the region's finest varietals.  

Return to your hotel around 18:00 and enjoy your last views of the region on the ride.
