Day Tours

Enjoy with me an overland tailor-made trip of between 2 -15 days on the south-east coast of South Africa , known as the Garden Route of South Africa. With 3 National parks , mountains that hug the coastline, lakes , beautiful white beaches , great historic coastal and inland towns with a variety of activities and heritage dating back to the era of the Portuguese explorers ,Khoi-San Bushmen , Dutch and the Britsh.

Travel time is approximately 4-5 hours’ drive from Cape Town via a few alternate routes through rolling hills of farmlands before reaching the coast of the Garden Route. If this time period in the vehicle is not for you , then I can tailor make your trip to fly to George Airport( connections from all major cities) , One can explore and interact with various animals in the Garden Route region.
