Departs WEDNESDAY or THURSDAY only. Flights not included in price. On the 10 Day Cape Town and Garden Route Combo you will see the BEST of the Western Cape in just under two weeks. First explore Cape Town and its many attractions and then head up the Garden Route to jump the highest bungy or face the fearsome Great White sharks. This is the best way to experience a bit of everything this wonderful province has to offer. Day 1 You are welcomed at the airport and transported to the 5 star Saltycrax Backpackers in Blouberg. The hostel is within walking distance from all bars, restaurants, the beach, shops and transport terminals. Blouberg is famous for kitesurfing, water sports and its amazing views of Table Mountain. For the rest of your day you can go down to the famous Kite Beach to capture some great views of Table Mountain, sip a cocktail, get lunch or take a stroll on the beach. At night a traditional South African meal is cooked on the fire. This is a great opportunity to meet new people from around the world. You will spend the night at Saltycrax. Day 2: After helping yourself to breakfast, your friendly Saltycrax Staff member will give you a brief lesson on using Cape Town’s public transport and will accompany you by bus to the Cape Town city centre. They will provide you with a bus card and enough credit for your whole journey. You will then have two options to choose from: - Walking tour: do a walking tour visiting historical sites like the Castle of Good Hope and the Grand Parade. Learn about life under apartheid in South Africa at the Parliament Buildings and the District Six Museum. Shop for African arts and crafts in Greenmarket Square and St George’s Mall. OR - The hop on hop off bus pass: board this topless bus that takes you to all the sites you need to see, such as Camps Bay, the V Waterfront and Table Mountain… all from the comfort of your seat! Day 3 Today you will embark on a tour of the Western Cape. You will travel to HoutBay where you can absorb true “rainbow nation” energy in this coastal town with colourful fishing boats anchored in a lively harbour. Here you have the choice to take a trip to Duiker Island, home to thousands of Cape Fur seals (optional extra) before taking a drive down Chapman’s Peak. This spectacular winding coastal road cuts into the mountain and wraps around the Peninsula giving you the most amazing views on your way to Cape Point in the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. Here you can wander along stone paths towards the historic lighthouse where wild waves crash into the tip of Africa’s most south western point or roam among the Cape’s fynbos landscape. Then it is back on the road to the university town of Stellenbosch in the wine lands where you will spend the night. Day 4 After breakfast, a community leader will guide you on a walk through the vibrant Kayamandi Township where you will mingle with the locals and learn about the “The Struggle” and Xhosa culture. This is followed by a wine and cheese and port and chocolate tastings at various wine estates in the area. Lunch will be taken in the gorgeous French-style village of Franschhoek where top-class restaurants and quaint shops abound. From here you take the road less travelled to the official meeting place of the Indian and Atlantic oceans and the southernmost tip of Africa, at Cape Agulhas. You will spend the night in Cape Agulhas. Day 5 This morning, the brave at heart will rise early to go cage diving with the Great White Sharks. This is an optional extra but is an adrenaline rush that will never be forgotten. If you don’t feel like taking your chances with sharks, you could have a “whale” of a time instead in the laid-back town of Hermanus, known as the most exciting land-based whale watching spot in the world – especially from June to November. Next on the menu is Betty’s Bay, a seaside village which is home to a colony of more than 5000 African penguins. Then it is back to Cape Town via the picturesque coastal route, Clarence Drive. The road winds between the ocean and rugged mountains along the wild beauty of the KogelbergBiosphere. You will spend the night on the famous Long Street in Cape Town centre. Day 6 It’s a beautiful drive as we head towards the Garden Route and an area known as Wilderness. Here you’ll find 18km of beaches cooled by sea spray, five lakes, five rivers and two estuaries; Wilderness is one of nature’s jewels in the crown and a protected National Park. Canoe on the Wilderness lagoon and watch the bird life while gliding over the water in a pure encounter with nature. We will then travel to, Myoli Beach, an undiscovered beach paradise, perfect for swim or surf in the warmer Indian ocean. Day 7 Enjoy the view at the holiday town of Knysna which is the next stop. We will go to the Heads, where the sea crashes into two massive sandstone cliffs. One of your highlights today is the Waterfall Zipline. The eight cable slides, of which the longest is 211m, zigzag across the river gorge, as high as 50m above the water in some places (optional extra at R350). From here you will venture to the Tsitsikamma National Park where you can explore the marine reserve with its unique combination of dramatic coastal and forest landscapes. Walk along forest trails to a suspension bridge and find a quiet spot from where to absorb this beauty. For the very daring, we visit the Bloukrans Bungee Jump – the world’s highest – for anyone who wishes to do this optional extra. Day 8 Today you will be able to visit the Addo Elephant National Park (3-hour bus ride) which was proclaimed in 1931 to provide a safe haven for the few wild elephants who survived government-sponsored culling in the early 20th century. Today the elephants number in their hundreds, thanks to the efforts of the National Parks Board and a unique vegetation type – subtropical thicket, or valley bushveld. It is this thick, impenetrable vegetation that has not only provided protection for the elephants and buffalo in the area, but also provided a rich food source, supporting what is now the densest population of wild elephants on the planet. Our tour concentrates on finding and viewing elephants. There is also an optional two-hour safari in a 4×4 vehicle with a ranger at your own expense. After this you can go for a surf or just chill out in Jeffrey’s Bay. The backpackers hire out surf boards and wetsuits for a fee. We will stop at the Billabong, Rip Curl and Quicksilver factory shops for excellent deals before stopping in Storms River for the night. Day 9 Along South Africa’s famous country road, the Route 62, you’ll capture the beauty of high mountains, twisting passes, rugged Karoo plains, vineyards and orchards. We will also stop for a drink at a famous country pub. We tour an ostrich farm, where the more daring among us can ride the ostriches (within weight limits). The rest of us get to stand on their eggs. Make sure your friends take a picture of you hugging and kissing the world’s most friendly female ostrich, Betsie. From here you are taken to the Cango Caves. These caves are an illuminated wonderland of subterranean magic and mystery, with passageways and chambers meandering far below. The tour will explore the narrow passages and vast halls filled with colorful ancient stalactites. You will spend the night in the town of Oudtshoorn. Day 10 Along South Africa’s famous country road, the Route 62, you’ll capture the beauty of high mountains, twisting passes, rugged Karoo plains, vineyards and orchards. We will stop at Cango Wildlife Ranch, a sanctuary to some of the world’s most endangered animals and contribute to conservation of over 60 species, including: white lion, cheetah, Bengal tiger, Nile crocodile, hippo, meerkat, birds and other wild animals. We will then head back to SaltyCrax to watch the sun go down over the ocean and share your stories with the guests.

This middle section was known as Coles Pass - so named after the very same Sir Lowry Cole. The name Houw Hoek translates into 'Hold Corner' and is derived from the need to hold back, or slow down the ox-wagons whilst negotiating the steep descent down the pass.

Some of the renowned attractions visitors will spot as they follow the route are the wine lands of the Breede River Valley, the majestic Swartberg mountains, the Cango Caves and ostrich farms of Oudtshoorn, and the fruit orchards of the Langkloof Valley.Overnight: Karoo Art Hotel ActivitiesRonnie's Sex ShopA group of friends, their pranks and casual suggestions are what led to the establishment of the famous pub in the Little Karoo known as Ronnie’s Sex Shop.

Look out for The Buffelsjags River Gorge, with its stunning rock pools and waterfall.Tradouw, derived from the Khoi word tradau, loosely translates to “the way of the women”. Oudtshoorn has much to offer from ostriches to caves and ranches. The Cango Ostrich Farm offers a first-rate tour. Our next stop is the Cango Caves and Cango Wildlife Ranch - where you can bravely go where no man has gone before - into the perilous gaze of a Nile Crocodile from a steel cage lowered into their watery domain! These excursions are included in the price of your tour, although lunch and drinks are not.Please note this is an ethical ranch and a significant percentage of all proceeds go straight back into the conservation initiatives.

Overnight: Protea Hotel by Marriott King George ActivitiesCango CavesThe spectacular Cango Caves are a subterranean wonderland of magnificent stalactite and stalagmite rock formations that attracts thousands of visitors annually. They extend more than two kilometres into the Swartberg Mountains and visitors can take guided tours that wind through narrow passageways and steep stairways linking the massive caverns.Cango Wildlife RanchThe Cango Wildlife Ranch promotes awareness and conservation of endangered species, while encouraging supervised interaction – making this a wonderful destination for children of all ages. Housing the oldest and largest cheetah contact centre worldwide, visitors can view these powerful, speedy cats in a natural bushveld environment from elevated walkways.

A marine conservation belt forms part of the park, stretching five and a half kilometres out into the ocean. Overnight: Tsitsikamma Village Inn ActivitiesTsitsikamma Big TreeOut of all the beautiful yellowwood trees that flourish in the Tsitsikamma Forest, there is one that has special status. Known as the Big Tree, this towering specimen is 36,6 metres tall and takes eight adults holding hands to circle it fully. The tree is between 600 and 800 years old, but it once had sisters that were over a thousand years old before they were destroyed.Tsitsikamma Canopy ToursStorms River Adventures is a rurally based Eco adventure Company situated in the heart of the majestic Tsitsikamma Forest region aptly named “THE GARDEN OF THE GARDEN ROUTE”.

Trout thrive in the region’s reservoirs and waterways, making it a magnet for fly-fishermen, while horse riding and mountain biking are also popular pursuits in this scenic part of the world. The ultimate highlight of the Southern Drakensberg, however, is the Sani Pass, which – at almost 3,000 metres above sea level – is South Africa’s highest pass, leading all the way to the Lesotho border and offering magnificent vistas along the way..

Our direction through the beautiful Khomazana river valley steepens as the road gains altitude and the views become expansive. There is one specific sharp left-hand bend, where there is parking for four or five cars with a lovely view site - and if the skies are clear, you will have the opportunity to take beautiful photographs from this vantage point. The Sani Pass is the third steepest pass in the world, which is why we are going to use 4X4s through beautiful mountain scenery into Lesotho where you can meet some of the Basotho people and experience their culture and way of living. The route, called the ‘Roof of Africa’ has a nerve wrecking final climb of over 800 metres in just 8 kilometres. Bumping our way over a short, but very poor quality road to the Sani Mountain Lodge we can enjoy a rest at the highest pub in Africa. With a roaring fire and walls adorned with history and graffiti, you can while away a few lazy hours and get a meal as well. The Highest Pub in Africa lives up to its name at 2873 meters above sea level. The Pub is situated at the top of the Sani Pass, a steep 4x4 trail with 27 corners and a number of them are tight switchbacks. Only 4x4 vehicles are permitted to use the pass. After returning to the hotel we collect our bikes for a more sedate ride to Howick.
