Why Book this tour
Although there are numerous tours that travel along the Garden Route, few incorporate as many activities or possibilities to meet locals as this adventure. Starting in Cape Town and travelling to the beautiful sandy beaches in Plettenberg Bay, we visit the prison where Nelson Mandela was kept, meet local Cape Town kids in a skateboard park run as a youth initiative, are taken around District Six Museum by an ex-resident, see whales, stay in a tree house, whitewater raft and go on safari. A varied and interactive adventure showcasing the beauty of the country and its people.
