Safari Weekend Getaway | Departs every Friday from Cape Town and takes you along the Garden Route to a safari game lodge. On this 3 day / 2 night Weekend Safari Getaway we travel east from Cape Town and along the Garden Route beyond Swellendam. The tour incorporates the highlights of the area along with the splendid scenery. 

The Garden Route is a little piece of heaven tucked away on the East Coast of South Africa. Our tour incorporates the highlights of the area along with the splendid scenery. This is perfect for those who don’t have much time but wish to experience the famous Garden Route along with many of its activities.

We spend our 1st night in the beautiful coastal town of Hermanus and then continue via Swellendam, to a 4 star Game Lodge where we overnight before returning to Cape Town.

  • Physicality: Medium
    Physical rating

    From relaxed (low) to ones where you need to be fit to join in.


    No surprises here. These tours/activities are those most anyone can do if they are fine with fairly flat walks and getting in and out of transport.


    Like to be active, even very active, but not pushed too far. This is the one for you.


    These tours/activities require you to be very fit. Probably not suitable for children.

  • Culture shock: Medium

    Consider these tours or activities as unlikely to surprise. They will still give you fantastic insight into the destination and/or a great experience.


    You might find yourself on these tours/activities confronted by quite a different way of doing things to that you are familiar with. Think food, language, customs, religions, mode of transport. For the slightly more adventurous.


    Think things you probably wouldn\'t do on your own ...
