13 Days – Johannesburg, Kruger Park, Garden Route & Cape Town

Join us on this 11 day tour.

Johannesburg, Kruger Park, Garden Route & Cape Town

Join us on this exciting 13-day trip and you will see why Johannesburg, Kruger Park, Garden Route and Cape Town are the top highlights for almost every traveller who has the chance to visit South Africa. 

The center of this trip is epic five nights on the Garden Route. You will experience stunning moments of adrenaline, breathtaking ocean views, and long, peaceful stretches of beach and sand. With quaint and quiet coastal towns lined up next to each other, each one famous for the best seafood and surf, it’s hard not to fall in love with South Africa, while embarking on the Garden Route. 

In addition to the Garden Route, we also explore the cultural metropolis of South Africa in Johannesburg, where we visit Nelson Mandela’s house, walk through the eerie history of the Apartheid Museum and visit Soweto, the most densely populated township in the country. We also spend two nights in Kruger Park, one of the largest game reserves in the country, and three nights in Cape Town, the beautiful Mother City known for its wine, history, and 360 panoramic views no matter where you go. The beauty of Cape Town will leave you speechless, as we adventure through the Mother City, from the top of table mountain to the cobblestone streets of Bo-Kaap.
