    Had taken the 4 nights and 5 days Garden route and addo tour. The guide and driver Gerhard is amazing with his knowledge, humour and driving. The accommodations could be a little better. Otherwise the tour is a must do. Cheers, Anirban

    Beautiful Knysna, the shimmering emerald jewel of the Garden Route, lazes on the edge of the lagoon and the Knysna Heads, a pair of rocky sandstone cliffs surrounded by the lagoon and the Indian Ocean is an unforgettable sight indeed :) This is also one... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

    • How much do you spend on each safari? Is it sufficient time to see the animals?

      During the 5day Garden Route + Addo there is an option for an early morning game drive in Addo Elephant National Park in the tour vehicle. This can be between 2-3 hours. Subject to availability, return to the wild for an optional 4x4 bush safari game drive with a knowledgeable game ranger at a Private Game Reserve for a possible sighting of resident wildlife and other smaller animals.

    • When and where does the tour end?

      At the end of the tour, there is an included drop off where the tour operator will drop you off at your selected hotel provided it is in central Cape Town or Stellenbosch (10km radius). An exact drop off time/ end time of the tour is not possible as it is subject to weather and traffic conditions however it will be in the late evening so we recommend departing the next day to avoid missing a flight.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Airport transfers are not available however the tour operator does include arrival and departure transfers from any accommodation in central Cape Town or Stellenbosch town centre (within 10km radius).

    • When and where does the tour start?

      On the first day of the tour, the tour starts between 6-8am with an included morning pickup which is from any accommodation in central Cape Town or Stellenbosch (within 10km radius) and will be confirmed once you have a reserved place on the tour.

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

    • What is the age range?

      The tour has a minimum age of 12 years old however there is no maximum age. Unfortunately, due to the age range, this means infants and children under 12 years old are unable to join the tour.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      There is a single supplement available on this tour however it is not mandatory as the price is based on shared accommodation, so if you are a solo traveller you will share a dorm room with other passengers of the same gender. However if you would prefer your own private room, please contact our customer support team as it is subject to availability.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      The tour price is based on hostel style accommodation staying at the following places which are subject to change-
      Sedgefield: Afrovibe Backpackers
      Jeffreys Bay: Island Vibe Backpackers
      Oudtshoorn: Backpackers Paradise

      Please contact our customer support team if you would like to know information about upgrading the accommodation.

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.

    • Do we need to pre-book the extra excursions offered on the tour?

      The optional extras can all be decided and paid for while on tour directly to the operators either via credit card or with cash.
