Days 1 - 3: Cape Town
Fly from the UK to Cape Town. Landing on day 2 you’ll be met at the airport and transferred to your boutique hotel which offers a view of Table Mountain for a 2 night stay.
Set at the confluence of the Indian and Atlantic oceans and backed by the iconic Table Mountain, the bustling city of Cape Town presents an alluring combination of drawcards such as Boulders Beach, where penguins might swim right up to you in the warm Indian ocean waters, the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens where you can walk along a treetop canopy among incredible native flora, and Robben Island where visitors can see the cell where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years; and many more.
Included is a trip on the Cape Town Hop-On-Hop-Off bus tour which provides a convenient and informative way to access all major highlights in Cape Town, including a visit to Camps Bay, Hout Bay Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Table Mountain.
Days 4 - 5: Langebaan/West Coast
Transfer to the motorhome depot where you will collect your vehicle and start your overland journey to the beautiful West Coast.
The tranquil West Coast is best known for its wide, open spaces, charming fishing villages, unspoilt beaches and abundant animal and marine life. From whale watching to enchanting spring flowers, hiking among the fynbos, mountain biking, birding and fresh seafood, this beguiling year-round destination has it all.
Day 6: Touws River
The pretty little railway town of Touws River sits between Barrydale and Ladismith in the little Karoo. Touws River is set on the fringes of the Klein Karoo, basically a valley sandwiched between the Langeberg and the Outeniqua Mountains, which in turn separates the Little Karoo from the Garden Route’s coastal strip.
Days 7 - 8: Oudtshoorn
Travel through the Klein Karoo area towards Oudtshoorn and make a stop at the Cango Caves for an included tour. These hour long tours are led by experienced, knowledgeable and accredited cave guides who will give you an insight into the six halls, chambers and rooms within the caves, as well as a close up view of stalactites, stalagmites, and a colony of bats that have made the cave their home.
From Oudtshoorn we highly recommend that you visit Buffelsdrift Game Lodge for a unique and wonderful experience. Here you will meet three African Elephants originally orphans from the Kruger National Park where their parents were poached. You will feel so fortunate when you meet these true gentle giants, Jabari, Bulelo & Malaika with their lovely personalities.
