Cape Town

ITINERARY-1

Escape To The Cape

Escape To The Cape

This is by far the most popular route for first-time visitors to South Africa, as it includes many of the best-known highlights of the country. It is an easy holiday route to self-drive, as the roads are good and the driving distances are comfortable.

Cape Town is usually top of the 'must-do' list for most first-time visitors to the country, and these itineraries all start with a few days to immerse yourself in the city and tick-off the many sights such as Table Mountain, the Cape Peninsula, Robben Island, the V&A Waterfront and the nearby beaches.

When you leave Cape Town you can either stop off in the Cape Winelands to enjoy the beautiful scenery (and of course the food and wine!), or maybe go to Hermanus for some whale-watching - or indeed, do both! The whale watching season usually runs from July to November, and the peak time is September and October when daily sightings are almost guaranteed.

Your next destination is the Garden Route. Take a few days to visit the many attractions, shop for arts and crafts, walk along deserted sandy beaches or explore forest trails and waterfalls, visit ostriches and caves, or relax on a sunset boat cruise. It is also home to some spectacular and challenging golf courses.

To end your trip, the safari lodges of the Eastern Cape offer an unforgettable malaria-free Big 5 safari experience. Morning and afternoon guided game drives take you in search of lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard, as well as zebra, giraffe and antelope, and you can get closer to Africa's wildlife than you have ever dreamed possible.

This holiday offers a real taste of South Africa's diversity, and many people return time and again to revisit favourite places or explore further afield. You can, of course, do the itinerary in reverse - starting with the safari and ending with Cape Town -0 either way round, it will be a memorable holiday!
