Welcome to Cape Town!
You're not required to arrive at a specific time on Day 1 since it's a free day - Check-in at your accommodation starts at 2 pm.
Upon your arrival to Cape Town you'll be picked up by our representative and you will be transferred to your hotel in Stellenbosch.
Starting the Roadtrip! Off to Knysna!
After having our breakfast we will be checking out from our hotel and head to Knysna. There is no doubt that the Knysna region along the Garden Route is breathtakingly beautiful and Tsitsikamma National Park never disappoints. Along the way we will stop for one of the highlights of this trip and we will go for a 4x4 Game Drive at Botlierskop Game reserve.
The Botlierskop Game reserve is home to 200 species of birdlife and more than 1800 animals including 13 antelope and 13 mammal species. Resplendent with a flowing mane, their male lion shares his territory with two lazy lionesses and de-horned white rhinos. You can even find antelopes on the reserve’s grounds whether they’re galloping or in the mouth of a predator.
Full Day Tsitsikamma!
Today we will head to Tsiskamma where we will have a hike to the suspension. Today will also be the day we go on the famous Lilo & Kayak adventure. This two and a half hour experience up the Storms River Gorge is one of the most popular activities in the region where you'll have the opportunity to explore the gorge and even cliff dive.
If we're lucky and the ocean is calm we might be able to pass under suspension bridge in Tsitsikamma National Park that looks out towards a breathtaking view of the ocean.
Off to Cape Town
Today check out from our accommodation very early so we can take the 6am Boat for our Shark Cage Diving Adventure. We'll be departing form Mossel Bay which is one of the most accessible regions in the world to view Great White Sharks. There are multiple factors that make this place ideal such as how calm the bay is and how close one of their favourite sources of food, seals, are.
Once we are back on land we will start making our way back to Cape Town.
Full Day Cape Town Tour..»
It's time to explore the iconic landmarks of our favorite city. But before we do that you have the option to go Paragliding in the early morning. After that it's time for Table Mountain. We take the cableway up table mountain to enjoy the panoramic view of the city and explore this iconic mountain. You have the option to go on the highest abseiling adventure followed by a short hike. (Please note that table mountain is a weather based activity)
After spending some time on the mountain we take the cableway down and head to Signal Hill for a short sunset hike.
Peninsula Tour, Cycling and Penguins!
After breakfast, you'll get a chance to spend a day exploring the beautiful Cape Peninsula on this full-day tour from Cape Town. Travel to Hout Bay Harbor where yo have the option of going on the Seal Island boat cruise or just sit while enjoying the view with some coffee to kickstart the day. Meander along the sheer drops of Chapman’s Peak Drive as you make your way to the Cape Point Nature Reserve and upon entry be sure to look out for roaming ostriches or mischievous baboons as you drive up to the breathtakingly scenic Cape Point. Then it’s cycling to Cape point and a hike to the tip of Africa. Remember to wear comfortable shoes, as the short hike to the top is not to be missed, offering panoramic views of the peninsula and the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. Having your photo taken at the famed Cape of Good Hope sign, marking the south-westernmost tip of Africa, is a must. Hike on to the lighthouse for an exceptionally marvelous view. Next up, you can get your fix of cuteness as you walk alongside African penguins at Boulders beach and learn about these endangered creatures and the efforts being made to conserve them.
Our adventure comes to an end..»

Adventure Leader Description
The Adventure Leader's mission is to make sure you have a smooth experience and to help you have the best experience possible. They will offer recommendations for things to do and see, great local eating venues and help the group interact and get to know each others (most of the time this actually happens on its own). While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the countries visited. We also use local guides where we think more specific knowledge is needed.
Food is an essential part of traveling. Traveling with Gazef we try as much as we can to help you experience the different kinds of food available in each destination. Our groups tend to eat together to enable you to enjoy each other's company. There is no obligation to do this at all times though. We usually leave out some of the meals excluded from the itinerary to give you the flexibility to choose what to eat based on your personal preference. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility. Your Adventure Leader will be able to suggest good restaurants during your trip. Vegetarians will be able to find a range of different foods, although in some areas the choice maybe limited.
Tipping is an expected, though not compulsory, component of your tour program. The gesture serves as an expression of appreciation for exceptional service, and amounts given are up to your discretion.
Tipping is one of the most direct ways that you can have a positive economic impact within the African community. Although it may not be customary for you, it is an important source of income for those in the tourism industry. Giving a tip should be a seen as a formal 'thank you', and the action should in no way be awkward.
The power supply in South Africa is nominally 230VAC, 50hz, Type C plug.
