On our Southern Africa Adventure Hosted Journey, you will explore deserted sand dunes, the wild West Coast, the Cape’s picturesque Winelands, Rock Art Safaris in the Cederberg, SUP boarding along the Peninsula, Southern Right Whales and discovering Africa’s Big Five on foot.
This Hosted Journey has been designed for the adventurous at heart, and any traveler looking to experience South Africa’s renowned areas in a slightly different way.
Your journey to South Africa starts in Cape Town. Discover the city with a visit up Table Mountain; hiking along the beautiful walking trails. On your journey through the Cape Peninsula, you will travel in a fully equipped vehicle which includes mountain bikes, SUP boards, surfboards and hiking packs. Part of your day will include a delectable picnic lunch and will be enjoyed while absorbing the beauty of the Cape.
From the city of Cape Town, we move towards the Overberg where the infamous Southern Right Whales occupy the coast. Depending on the season, the whales can be seen from the shore and by boat. Your activity at the end of the day will include a sand dune safari and sundowners overlooking the ocean before heading back to the lodge for dinner. During your time in the Overberg you will not only be occupied with whale spotting but will also have the option of exploring the local caves, shark cage diving, quad biking, canoeing or SUP boarding along the Hermanus lagoon.
For the next few days the Cape Winelands will be part of your itinerary. You will start in the Overberg with a few unique wine tastings led by your professional Hosted Journeys Guide. From the Overberg we will head towards Franschhoek, where you will spend time exploring this quaint, French inspired town. Expect vineyard safaris, top notch wine tastings and fine dining meals during this part of your journey.
Depart the Cape Winelands and travel from one coast to the other – the West Coast. This part of your journey will include beautiful white beaches, national parks filled with an abundance of indigenous plants (Fynbos), local flavors and a picnic within the coast’s authentic surroundings. Your time spent along the West Coast will be different to the Overberg, and will leave you in awe of the diverse landscapes that the Western Cape has to offer.
Your journey ends with two exclusive safari experiences, but with a difference! Your first stop will be at a mountainous lodge; significant for ancient rock art. This particular location will allow you to absorb the unique surroundings and is one of South Africa’s top SPA destinations.
The end of your Southern Africa Adventure Hosted Journey will be a walking safari in one of the country’s top “Big Five” reserves. Your walking safari will be expertly guided by professional trackers and rangers and will allow you to get up-close and personal with Africa’s wildlife.
