Rental Car Tour
Are you looking forward to seeing the Big Five?
On our 11 day rental car round trip "Wild Garden" through South Africa you will get to know the fascinating landscape of the most southern country in Africa in detail and come into close contact with African animal world. Your round trip through South Africa begins in the metropolis Cape Town which you can discover on your own after your arrival, before you pick up your rental car. You will then head for the Cape of Good Hope and a short detour to the vineyard Groot Constantia. After a further overnight stay in Cape Town, you will drive along the coast to the Cape Agulhas, the most southern point of the African continent. With some luck you might even be able to do some whale watching from the coast. Your round trip through South Africa leads you next into the historic Swellendam and to the Bartolomeu Dias Ship Museum before you reach the Knysa Elephant Park in the evening. You will spend the entire next day in this park, that keeps not only elephants but also many other African animals. Following the Garden Route you head to Port Elizabeth, the beautiful city on the south coast of the country. With the Addo Elephant National Park a further highlight on your South Africa round trip is on the program before you head with a large curve back again to the west. Yet further highlights await you, such as a visit to the Safari Ostrich Farm in Oudtshoorn where you have opportunity to ride on an ostrich. Over hilly mountain passes and green valley’s your round trip continues on to the city Franschhoek with its many French gourmet restaurants and to Stellenbosch, world-famous for its delicious cape wines. On day 11 your rental car round trip through South Africa comes to an end in Cape Town with the return of your rental car. You can extend your stay or head back home.
