Africa is well known for all the wildlife tours and activities
on offer while exploring the scenic landscapes and attractions.
Kruger Park, being the most popular safari option in South Africa
is however an attraction that requires quite a bit of time and
funds, meaning budget travellers or those with limited time
requires an alternative option. For these specific reasons,
it is important to mention that The Garden Route should not
be overlooked for safari options. Many Garden Route tours offer
included or optional safaris giving you a true feel of the wildlife
of South Africa.
The Garden Route, from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth travellers
will be suprised to find a handful of private game reserves
and safari parks scattered amongst the hills and farmlands.
Here one can see a large number of The South Africa Big 5 ranging
from daytrips lasting about 3 hours to a couple of days in Addo
National Park. Fees and prices at these safari parks are considerably
less than a few days at Kruger Park if one takes a look at accommodation
and travelling costs. Doing a few days along the Garden Route
will provide travellers with a very good balance of beach, nature,
wildlife and safari tours.
all know the saying 'different strokes for different folks',
and travelling or deciding on what to do during your trip to
South Africa is no different. Through experience we have realised
that families with children enjoy the smaller parks along the
Garden Route much better than the bigger safari parks in the
north. The bigger parks are for true, patient nature enthusiasts,
willing and able to spend 8 - 10 hours per day driving around
the parks hoping to find that perfect sighting. The smaller
game reserves found during Garden Route tours, however are much
smaller and animal sightings are plenty within only a couple
your needs or requirements, feel free to get in contact with
us to discuss and plan your options. We can take you on Garden
Route tours all the way up to the north. We have a selection
of scheduled tours along with options to tailor-make your own
tours depending on what exactly you hope to find in South Africa.
