    Backpackers Paradise was great. Wish there were a few more stops during the long journeys,even if they were short but must be cool things to see.
    Hotspots2c commented on this review
    Totally agree with you, Backpackers Paradise is a welcome oasis in the midst of the Klein Karoo's dusty plains. Our itineraries are scheduled to stop approximately every 90 minutes to break up longer journeys. But if you see a specific photo stop along... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

    • How far will we drive per day?

      The total route is about 1200km. Maximum km per day is ±450km, so some days have less driving than others.

    • How many people will be in my group?

      Hotspots2c has a maximum of 13 people in their group.

    • I'm a senior and I'm interested in this tour. I find some of the activities a bit physical though, do you have an alternative for it?

      The 3day Garden Route + Safari is a wonderful tour as you get to combine both activities and scenery.

      There is a stop at the bungee jump scheduled in the itinerary but we can ask for you to be taken to visit the 1000 year old Big Tree instead. You can also opt for the heritage tour during their visit to the Cango Caves instead of the Adventure tour.

      We recommend that you'll rather opt for the 3star or 4star package where you'll stay overnight away from the group and where you'll get breakfast included in the offer.
