Lioness on safari

The Garden Route is a little piece of heaven tucked away on the East Coast of South Africa. Our 4 day 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 have been conducting Garden Route tours for a very long time! We know the area and surroundings like the back of our hands!

Contact us directly if you are a part of a group larger than 5 looking to do your own tour! Do your dates not coincide with our dates online? Perhaps you want a longer tour, a halaal-friendly tour, or even a one-way tour from Cape Town – Port Elizabeth or start and finish in the opposite direction! Even tack on a tour for your wedding party (Garden Route weddings are simply stunning)!

Private groups have a lot of flexibility on accommodation and itineraries, and of course, they can be structured to suit all budgets. We can tailor your perfect private safari tour!
