Is This Trip for Me?

This self-drive will take you along the Garden Route – you start in the Mother City with a few days at the luxurious Mount Nelson. This is the perfect base to explore the city and its surroundings such as the Cape Peninsula and Winelands. The property has large gardens and a swimming pool, ideal for the children to run around after a day “touristing” in the vehicle. Then hop not too far away in the Overberg, brilliant vistas and great food awaits you; traveling between July and October and you can get a chance to view the whales in the bay. Continue with some beach days in St Francis and a night in Gqeberha, ending in the wonderful Kwandwe Game Reserve for outstanding game viewing. Children will be entertained with fishing, and cooking lessons with the chef. This is the ideal trip, for adults and children of all ages.

* Should you prefer not to drive, this journey can also be guided, contact us for prices.
