This comprehensive tour covered an amazing amount in six days including ancient caves, safaris in wildlife parks, canoeing along a river through wonderful scenery, and coastal walks among much else. Our Guide Ferne was brilliant. She managed the tour and the 12 people on it who were aged from mid 20s to mid 60s and who all got on very well very efficiently, provided a wealth of information about the Country and the places we visited, drove the great distances involved very smoothly, and was a pleasure to meet and get to know. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour as a wonderful way to explore the Western and Eastern Cape.

Incredible tour of amazing landscapes and flora and fauna. Super excellent guide. Lovely fellow travelers, incredible price. Nice lodgings and food too. What more could you ask for? I couldn't recommend it more, and this was my first group tour and I was nervous about being stuck in a van with strangers for 6 days, but this was definitely a valuable, worthwhile, highly memorable trip. Each day has activities that are really nice, with optional trip activities you can buy. I added the whale watching which was excellent!
