The Garden Route Tour Planner
Garden Route Hotspots and Highlights:
How to plan your first tour to South Africa and The Garden Route, with help on selecting your hotels.

From our vast experience, we have found that most visitors to South Africa will want to try all the following highlights and tours:
Cape Town City Tours and all its attractions, Table Mountain, Cape Point, The Winelands and Robben Island tours.
Any of our Garden Route Tours and
A visit to at least one Safari Game Park.
Selecting and booking your hotels in South Africa, Cape Town and The Garden Route

To be able to do all of these highlights and tours will obviously depend on the duration of your stay in South Africa. We have provided you with a guideline of what you will be able to do and see in The Garden Route and South Africa, depending on the duration of your South Africa Holiday and budget when it comes to selecting hotels and tours.

4 days duration:
This is enough time to explore Cape Town and it’s surroundings. This might not be quite enough time to experience Garden Route Tours, but you will be able to concentrate on The Mother City, incl. Cape Town City Tours and all its attractions, a Table Mountain Tour and a Full Cape Peninsula Tour to Cape Point. You might even be able to squeeze in a Tour of The Cape Winelands and visit some Wine Estates in Paarl and Stellenbosch, and taste some of the most prestigious wines in South Africa. Hotels are available in all of these areas.

5 – 8 days duration:
A holiday of this duration will most definitely make it possible for you to do a fantastic Tour of The South Africa Garden Route. Visiting the Garden Route is an absolute must, and millions of visitors from all over the world will confirm that! Due to the moving nature of this tour we sleep in different locations every night and in new hotels every night. Have a look at our set itineraries for Garden Route tours in the menu bar above.

The shortest duration for a Garden Route Tour that we suggest is for 3 days and 2 nights. This means that if you are pushed for time, but you really want to try to see everything, then we can even try to fit in Cape Town City Tours, The Table Mountain Tour, The Cape Peninsula Tour to Cape Point, or even a Winelands Tour as well for a full 6 Day Package. However, we suggest that, if possible, you plan for enough time to take a nice and relaxed 4 Days, 3 Nights Garden Route Tours to fully experience and enjoy this magnificent stretch of land in South Africa.

10 + days duration:
This is the most ideal length of time to enjoy a full and unforgettable tour package of The Garden Route, Cape Town and it’s magnificent surroundings. We suggest that you spend 3 days in Cape Town, to enjoy the Cape Town City Tour, a Table Mountain Tour, a Cape Peninsula Tour to Cape point and maybe even a fantastic Cape Winelands Tour of Paarl and Stellenbosch or a Cape Town Township Tour. Remember, we pick up from all hotels in Cape Town. Hotels are available to book throughout South Africa.

To experience Garden Route Tours, we suggest that you do The 4 Day, One Way Garden Route Tour to the City of Port Elizabeth. Just north of Port Elizabeth in The Eastern Cape is a number of fantastic Wildlife Big Five Safari Game Reserves and National Parks, where you can enjoy a Big Five South Africa Safari in a MALARIA-FREE area.

To summarize:
3 Days in Cape Town, 4 Days on The Garden Route and then 2 or 3 days at one or more of the above mentioned Game Parks or Reserves. After this, your South Africa Tour will come to an end and you will depart South Africa from Port Elizabeth, and will NOT return to Cape Town.
