Introduction

South Africa. Visit a world in one country.

Travel the scenic and majestic Garden Route and see some of the largest elephant herds in the world at Addo Elephant National Park. You will have opportunities to interact with locals, see how they live, work and play.

The experience and overnighting with a host family brings you close to the community of the original Goedverwacht Mission Station for a heart-warming stay. Learn about the history beginning during the slave era and meet today's locals to enjoy the hospitality offered by this community.

Enjoy the scenic diversity. There's time for some beach and swimming on the way. Be impressed by Africa's largest herds of elephant and whilst game viewing try to spot the others of the Big 5, lion, leopard, buffalo or rhinoceros.

We have made several optional activity suggestions. Optional local excursions can be pre-booked or booked direct whilst travelling c/o our activity online portal, that will be provided when travel documentation is submitted. Extra nights or accommodation upgrade to luxury, or higher car rental category, can be added at your request.

Once you instruct us to book everything in this proposal, the deposit and payment details will be sent to you, as soon as we have made all the reservations.  30 days before you arrive, we will send the final drive itinerary, the service vouchers, important contact details and an access-code for our 'fone' app, to download to your android or iphone, so you can follow the daily driving route-directions on google-maps.

We will assure you experience a stress-free dream holiday to South Africa, and provide 24-7 assistance during your journey.
