Cape to addo safari Tour

From Cape Town to the southernmost tip of Africa to the BIG 7! Departing Cape Town every Sunday, our 6 Day Cape to Addo Elephant Park Safari is a unique, safe and affordable way to experience the thrill of game driving an authentic 145 000ha National Game Park while touring the coastal regions of both the Western and Eastern Cape. On this tour nothing is left out as we explore the Whale Route, Route 62, the Karoo and Garden Route all the way to Mandela Bay and Port Elizabeth. Each Cape to Addo Safari is professionally driven and guided by an experienced African tour leader and the itinerary is packed full of unique African experiences and exciting discoveries. Game driving, ski-boat cruises, beer tasting, caving, zip lining, bungi jumping, hot springs, horse riding, elephant feeding and riding, river canoeing, sea-kayaking, the list goes on... and on.
