Small Group Lodge Safari - from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town

8 Day Adventure

Day 1: Arrive Port Elizabeth, South Africa

On arrival at Port Elizabeth Airport, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. The rest of your day is at your leisure. Port Elizabeth or PE is known as the ‘friendly city’ and the windy city. Originally home to many British settlers, the little port grew to be the gateway to South Africa’s Garden Route as well as the Eastern Cape’s game reserves and beaches.

Day 2: Cape Town to Addo Elephant National Park

Explore Route 67 on a walking tour, including a series of public art works celebrating the 67 years of public service of the freedom icon, Nelson Mandela (fondly known as Tata Madiba). In the early afternoon, you transfer to Addo National Park. A benchmark conservation success, this unique wildlife habitat is known for the Addo elephants and the remaining population of the flightless dung beetle.

Your game drive this afternoon searches for elephant, black rhino, lion, buffalo and leopard. Spend the evening at the floodlit waterhole to watch the nocturnal animals and listen to their calls. Additional game drives in open game-viewer vehicles are available as well (additional cost).

Meals included: Breakfast

Days 3-4: Addo to Storms River, Tsitsikamma Forest

After breakfast journey along South Africa’s southern coastline, to a region of startling beauty known as the Garden Route. Spend two nights in the Storms River Village, at the heart of the Tsitsikamma Forest. Take a leisurely hike along one of the short trails, which allow you to explore the coastal bush and rocky shoreline. There is also an option to plunge off the world’s highest bungy jump at the Bloukrans River (additional expense).

Meals included: Breakfast

Day 5: Tsitsikamma to Oudtshoorn & Cango Caves

After visiting ‘The Heads’ in Knysna, a town nestled on a tranquil lagoon, we will enjoy an interactive and educational oyster tasting experience. We continue our journey, travelling over the Outeniqua Mountains into the Little Karoo arriving in the town of Oudtshoorn. Take a trip to the Cango Caves, full of ancient stalagmites and stalactites before overnighting in the ostrich capital of the world.

During your stay you have the chance take part in an interactive interpretative nature walk focusing on biodiversity, adaptation, the importance of organisms, interdependence and the need for conservation.

Meals included: Breakfast

Days 6-7: Oudtshoorn, Stellenbosch, Cape Town

Enroute to Cape Town, visit the pretty university town of Stellenbosch for wine tasting and a cellar tour. Your afternoon is at leisure in Cape Town, enjoy sundowners at one of the fabulous beaches or indulge in some last minute shopping at the V&A Waterfront. The next day, explore the many attractions the ‘Mother City’ has to offer on our Cape Point tour.

Meals included: Breakfast

Day 8: Depart Cape Town, South Africa

Today you have free time.  You have the option to take the cable car up to scenic Table Mountain (additional expense) for one last outstanding panoramic scenic view of the Cape of Good Hope before your transfer to the airport.
