Accessible 5 Day Garden Route Tour

Everybody is welcome on our tours; individuals, friends, families, groups and clubs – disabled or not. All the accommodation used is wheelchair accessible. This enables disabled travellers to enjoy an “expedition of a lifetime”.

Day 1
We depart from Cape Town at 7h30am (please refer to Pre-Departure Information) and travel to pretty Hermanus (only in season) which is famous for its miracle of nature as the Antarctic whales come into Walkers Bay to calve (seasonal). Our route to Mossel Bay is via farmlands of apple/pear orchards and rolling hills with lunch on route. From here we drive along the scenic route to Sedgefield, our overnight stop for 2 nights.

Day 2
After a good breakfast we drive via Georges and the picturesque Outeniqua Pass to the Mecca of South African ostrich farming – Oudtshoorn. Here you can visit the world famous and stunning dripstone cave – Cango Caves* (optional cost as it is not wheelchair accessible at all), one of the many Ostrich Show Ranches and the Cango Wildlife Farm. After a leisurely drive back with breathtaking views we relax for the 2nd night at Sedgefield. (B)

Day 3
Today we drive to Knysna, trough Wilderness and the Lake District, one of the world’s most picturesque drives. After a fascinating stop at Knysna Head and a boat cruise* (weather dependant) on Knysna Lagoon we travel to the hart of the Garden Route – the Tsitsikamma National Park which embraces an 80km strip of superb coastline together with a marine reserve that stretches 5 km offshore. Here you can relax or take walks in the forest which is richly endowed with plant life and birds, the rock pools teem with colourful marine life; and whales, dolphins & sea otters can often be seen sporting close to the shoreline. (B)

Day 4
In the morning you have the chance to visit the Monkeyland, Birds of Eden and the Elephant Sanctuary* where you can do a “Trunk in hand tour” (Elephant-back Ride* also available on request at optional cost) or you can take some time out and just relax. After an exciting or peaceful morning our journey takes us to Stormsriver, the Adventure centre of the Garden Route with the Bloukrans Bungi-jump* (216M!!), one of the highest in the world. We take a leisurely drive along more fantastic coastline before returning to Tsitsikamma Forest for the second night. (B)

Day 5
On our last day we take a leisurely drive along the breathtaking coastline to the 5th largest city in South Africa - Port Elizabeth, also known as “friendly city” or “windy city”. On arrival in PE the tour ends (B)

About our trip providers and reviews

Our Trip Providers

We carry out extensive company checks on all our providers, over 20 years we have built strong personal relationships with each of them, which assures you of an unparalleled service, great value and the trip of a lifetime.
We have participated in many of the trips found here (we have a nice job) and make our own independent assessments of the services provided, ensuring they meet with our own high standards.

All the trips are supplied by the end provider of that trip.
You may find the same or similar trips elsewhere, usually these are offered by an agent.
We prefer to give you direct access to the trip provider for reasons outlined below:

  1. Best price.
    The price you see here is the direct trip price set by the provider, the same price as purchasing directly with them (which is how it works), there are no added commissions.
    This means you are not paying an agents commission and the provider is receiving their fully budgeted trip cost.
    (agents can demand discounts from providers as well as adding commissions to the providers trip price)
  2. Easy customisation.
    By booking directly with the end provider, making changes is quick and easy.
  3. Fast problem solving.
    On the rare occasion that an issue may arise before or during your trip, by dealing directly with the end provider, problem solving is quick and efficient.
  4. Helping Africa help itself.
    The most straightforward way to assist the economic opportunities and conditions for local people across Africa, is by direct financial interaction with people in Africa. In a nutshell "Tourism".
    This kind of direct tourism gives opportunity to local people.

We limit the number of providers we work with in order to strike a balance between a good choice of trips and to be sure we can honestly recommend the service and validity of each provider.
Because the majority of trips can be customised by the providers, the choice of trip configurations is in the tens of thousands.

Our Reviews

We have 3,000+ reviews for our trips and providers.
All our reviews are fully qualified, we do not take unqualified reviews.
We show all reviews, the good and the critical (very few). Our providers have the ability to respond to reviews and those responses are shown alongside the review.
Acquiring genuine reviews is actually very hard, for our genuine travellers we make this an easy process but many people although satisfied with the service they received do not leave a review.

Many reviews on the internet can be left by an open process with little or no checks.
At best unqualified reviews are worthless, at worst they are misleading. We never take unqualified reviews.

We hope you find a trip to your liking and we are here to assist.

Wishing you happy travels...
