Cape Town & The Garden Route

Cape Town & The Garden Route

Victoria falls and Cape Town are two of the most popular tourist destinations in Africa and it makes perfect sense to combine these two wonders of the world in one visit.

The mother city is South Africa’s most favourite travel destination, The setting is simply stunning – perched on a rugged piece of land that forms the horn of Africa – The countryside around the Cape of Good Hope is one of the most spectacular natural sites in the world, while South Africa’s oldest city has become one of the worlds truly great hang outs.- Founded 350 years ago and enclosed by two thundering oceans and by the iconic Table Mountain, Cape town has enough heart pumping activities plus much more relaxed outings to beaches and vine yards to keep the whole spectrum of visitors occupied.

A few days in Cape Town will allow you to explore the city and surrounding areas either by hiring a car or for those without their own vehicle – we can book excursions with reliable tour companies. A trip up Table Mountain , a visit to Robben Island and the beautiful Cape Point are all fantastic day trips.

For those with some more time – Cape Town is at the start of the famous ‘Garden Route’. This officially runs along the coast from Mossel Bay through to Port Elizabeth. This piece of coastline is beautiful with great places to visit en route such as Wilderness, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay.

Travel Wild can design you an itinerary with stops for a few days at the best places, we can arrange car hire and guest house accommodation to suit all budgets and also recommend and book activities along the way – train trips between Wilderness and Knysna, boat trips on Knysna lagoon, visits to Monkey Land, the Elephant Sanctuary and more.

If time permits, you can travel back along the inland route called ‘Route 62’ and visit the town of Oudthshoorn, famous for the Cango Caves and ostrich farms and through the mountain passes of Robertson and Montagu. This area has beautiful scenery and lots to see and do. If you don’t want to hire a car, there are several really good tour operators offering group tailor made tours to join.
