A scenic drive through the Cape’s 4 most spectacular mountain passes overlooking magnificent valleys and gorges – an area rich both in history and indigenous fauna and flora.
This tour and mini Safari allows one to experience both the beauty of the famous Garden Route as well as the semi-desert Karoo – thus introducing the traveller to scenic beauty of extreme contrast. We explore the dramatic coastline of the Garden Route then turn inland to experience the Karoo and the Swartberg mountains.
This is all about contrasts; the lush Garden Route in stark contrast with the arid Great Karoo. The first part takes us along the green Garden Route. From here to the Addo Elephant Park and the Great Karoo. Spectacular mountains, white beaches, a prodigious floral kingdom and sapphire sea contrasting with the lunar-like Great Karoo.
Some of the highlights of this 12-day escorted package are the Kruger National Park, Swaziland and Hluhluwe Game Reserves. We then travel the coastline from Durban via the scenic Garden Route to Cape Town. We branch off for a visit to the Cango Caves near Oudtshoorn on the way.
