After a visit to a local farmer’s market we continue along the Garden Route to the world’s highest commercial bungee. For those thrill seekers there will be plenty of time to face your fears. We then visit the Tsitsikamma National Park for where we go for a hike in the indigenous forest. After Tsitsikamma we make our way to our overnight destination in the Addo area.

After lunch we make our way through Port Elizabeth en-route to our overnight destination in the Surfing Capital of South Africa, Jeffreys Bay.


Hit the waves, chill on the beach or go shopping. We then head off towards Wilderness stopping at a view point in Knysna, South Africa’s favourite town and then do some canoeing in the Wilderness National Park. In the evening we enjoy a traditional South African meal around the fire.
