The Garden Route is a little piece of heaven tucked away on the East Coast of South Africa. Our 4 day tour incorporates the highlights of the area along with the splendid scenery. This is perfect for those who don’t have much time but wish to experience the famous Garden Route along with many of its activities!

This is a typical itinerary for this product

From the Eastern Cape, we head back towards the Garden Route and to the World’s highest Bungy Bridge at Bloukrans (plenty of time to jump for those thrill seekers). This 216-m high bungy is a true marvel to behold, even for those that have a fear of heights! Our journey leads us to the Garden Route Game Lodge where we will also overnight in the luxury accommodation. We will do a late afternoon safari drive where we will have the opportunity to view rhino, lion, buffalo, cheetah and many varieties of antelope species. A sumptuous and varied buffet dinner is served at the lodge and is yet another highlight! (Breakfast, Dinner)

We had such an incredible experience, I would definitely do it again! The places we visited were stunning, the nature is overwhelming and all the accomodations were nice, safe and clean. Mawande is a great tour guide with so much knowledge and one can feel that he loves to show tourists the country and furthermore wanted us to get a insight into south african society and history!

Amazing tour covering a lot of ground in the company of the best guide on the African continent, Benjamin, whose unparalleled knowledge and profesionalism, in addition to the breathtaking landscapes, made this an unforgettable experience.

This is my second time doing this trip with Mawande, who is always looking out for everyone. As a local myself, what I love about doing a group tour is meeting new people, going out of town to detox and not having to worry about planning my activities for each day, driving, deciding where to eat etc. as all this has been done for you. All you need to do is be there and enjoy the fun-filled days and what the beautiful Garden Route has to offer...

Wonderful 4 day garden route tour with Chris as our guide! We wanted to celebrate our honeymoon with something special, and this tour certainly left us with fond memories. The highlight was certainty the game lodge, but the breathe of places covered and visited over the four days gave us the South Africa experience. Finally, we were in the safe hands of Chris for the entire time, and would highly recommend!

We really enjoy the Safari. Our guide Mawande was the best. He drove us, taught us a lot about south africa, cape town and literally everthing we were Interested in. Mawande adapted the tour to our needs and reponded to every special request. Furthermore he gave us a lot of helpful tips and recommendations for our further stay. We highly recommend the Safari and especially Mandawe.
