    This route is without a doubt a once in a life time trip. However, be sure to understand the accommodations tucan travel will provide before selecting this trip. For this trip, you will be spending most all of the time sleeping in tents at camp sites and traveling for 5 to 7 hours just about every day or every other day to the next destination. The Elephants of Addo national park, mountain biking in tsitsikamma, scenery of drakensburg, bath tub from hogsback, and culture from Lesotho are unforgettably and by far the best parts of the trip. However, there are days where your lunch consists of a sandwich and vegetable curry or your dinner is left over lunch with a little beef stew cooked by the tour group. Like I said before, the tour is a once in a life time experience. It is definitely low in price and more affordable than just about any other trip and there are plenty of opportunities to upgrade your tent to a room and go out to eat instead of having meals prepared for you. However, it would have been nice to have a few more comforts and the trip does require a lot of driving and traveling along the way. If you are more of a person that likes big city life, this is not for you. If you are someone who likes hiking the wilderness, and experiencing different cultures, this is definitely for you.
