GRAHAMSTOWN to CAPE TOWN

Garden Route Express

TOUR CODE OTA-SA32   Length: 7 Day/6 Night 

This itinerary will take you along the bottom of the African Continent.  We begin in the Port Elizabeth area and work our way along the coast to Cape Town.  This drive is known as the Garden Route as it passes through some of the most beautiful scenery in all of Africa.  While particularly good in the spring (Sept-Oct) it is a most enjoyable drive anytime of the year.  It can be done as a self-drive or fully guided as we have quoted below.  There are many ways we can customize the itinerary to meet your particular interest and budget.  Quality game viewing at our private reserve and at Addo Elephant National park can also be added.  Please call one of our representatives to discuss the many options available.
