A fantastic trip from start to finish. Whether you’re into wildlife, scenery or adrenaline - this trip has it all! Cape Xtreme took care of everything we wanted and went that extra step to make sure all went smoothly. If you’re planning a holiday to South Africa then I’d strongly recommend this company. A variety of tours with excellent guides who really show you the magic of what the country has to offer!

Thank you so much to Lourens and Gareth, who were our guides on the Cape To Addo 6 day trip. Gareth made an effort to get to know me even though I wasn't on his bus. I was on Lourens' bus and cannot thank him enough. Not only did we see and visit everything on the itinerary, Lourens went above and beyond, shuffling things around to make sure we saw as much as possible. I loved the extra little surprises, seeing the penguins and giraffes. As we were passing such picturesque places, I tried hard to take photos and notes. Lourens was informative and demonstrated great knowledge about the places we drove by and visited which was very insightful. The garden route was incredible, I loved every bit of it. The views, sunsets and experiences were amazing. A saying that Lourens told us, "fear is temporary, regret lasts forever', will always stay with me. If it wasn't for this simple yet powerful quote that Lourens dropped in a couple of times before we made big decisions, I wouldn't have ended up doing some of the most scary yet fulfilling things of my life. I am very grateful to have had such a positive and encouraging guide who made the trip fun and enjoyable. I really learned a lot on this trip and know there is so much more to see. This tour was the best way to end my trip to Africa and definitely makes me want to come back again soon. There is so much more that could be said, but I would be here forever, so I will leave you with this. Thank you Lourens and Gareth. Keep being amazing - keep being you! 🥰

Went on the 6 day tour as a solo traveller, was a but worried at first but as it turned out I wasn't the only one in the group. Everyone was really friendly and our guide Lourens did a great job of helping us learn about SA and it's culture and also taught us a lot about the animals there. Food was very good and the places we stayed were lovely. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and I would definitely recommend the tour for value for money. Bungee jumping, surfing on Jefrees bay and Addo safari were definitely highlights.

We had a great time and have seen many interesting things during our trip! Although I think I would rather take 4 day trip in this particular time, as february is not the whales season in Hermanous, so I could skip that day 😉 however the town itself was really cute! We traveled with Lourens and he was super cool- we really enjoyed our time with him as a guide!🤩👏
