This is the ideal trip in which to experience Cape Town, arguably the most beautiful city in the world and then to travel along the famous Garden Route on to your safari destination in the Eastern Cape. After 4 days of exploring the Mother City and surrounds you make your way to the heart of the world-renowned Winelands region of South Africa for a day of wine tasting at a few wineries. Thereafter you will start your journey along the Garden Route which is one of the most spectacular and awe-inspiring stretches of coastal land in South Africa, if not the world. After a morning of land-based whale watching in Hermanus, you will then head along the famous Route 62 and marvel in the splendor of the glorious landscapes as you travel to the town of Oudtshoorn. Then on to Knysna with its wonderful beaches and surrounding areas with plenty to do, including first-rate golf courses, nature reserves, hiking trails, river excursions, animal rehabilitation programmes, and many excellent restaurants and cafés. We end this trip with two nights on safari in the world famous Addo Elephant Park followed by three nights at Shamwari Private Game Reserve to see the Big Five.
