2 Day Garden Route Safari
A great taste of a budget safari, on a private game reserve with all of the big 5 and a reptile park.
Departing every Saturday from Cape Town, you head up the famous Garden Route on the East Coast of South Africa. With lots of scenic stops along the way before finally arriving at the reserve. You will enjoy a big 5 sunset safari followed by a delicious buffet dinner. The night is spent on the reserve in beautiful chalets, followed by another game drive in the morning and then heading back to Cape Town.
The perfect teaser safari for those who do not have the time for a proper African safari.

Safari & Elephant Bush Walk
We depart the Mother City in the morning and drive out towards the gorgeous Garden Route. We start the day with a morning Safari at a Private Game Reserve in search of lions, elephants, giraffes, buffalo and many more wild animals.
