Activity description

The Cape to Addo Park Safari is a unique, safe and affordable way to experience the thrill of game driving in an authentic BIG 5 National Game Park, while touring the coastal regions of both the Western and Eastern Cape.

On this tour you'll visit Route 62, the Karoo and Garden Route all the way to Jeffrey’s Bay. Every Cape to Addo safari is professionally driven and guided by an experienced African tour leader and the itinerary is packed full of unique African experiences and exciting discoveries. Game Driving, Shark Diving, Caving, Zip lining, Bungee Jumping, Surfing, Elephant feeding and riding, river canoeing and the list goes on...and on.

This 5 day tour (one way) is designed for those who still want to explore the Garden Route up to Addo, but just don’t have the time.

Day 1 ǀ Cape Town to Struisbaai: Overberg, Whale Route, Cape Agulhus
Departing Cape Town at 8:30am and Stellenbosch at 9:30am, your exciting journey begins today as you join the world famous whale route in Gordons Bay, for a stunning drive along the picturesque R44 mountain pass overlooking False Bay to the vibrant coastal town of Hermanus. After an opportunity to take some photographs on the seafront, you'll continue to Birkenhead Brewery to sample some fine beers, before moving on to the southernmost tip of Africa in Cape Agulhas National Park.
After a visit to the lookout point you'll make your way to the harbour, where there is an optional extra activity to embark on an exciting boat cruise to search for dolphin and whales (June to November and subject to availability and time).
After the cruise you'll take a walk back to your accommodation along “Die Plaat”, the longest beach in the Southern Hemisphere.
