DDuration: Five Days
Area: Garden Route
Itinerary: There are lots of spots to stay in, so it’s a good idea to decide which highlights a client will like best and design the trip around them. Fly into Cape Town and travel this 185-mile route stretching between the Eastern and Western Cape provinces. This UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves is a hub of biodiversity, featuring estuaries, freshwater lakes, Blue Flag beaches and indigenous forests. The national treasures on the way include Knysna’s idyllic lagoon, the golden sands of Plettenberg Bay and the serene Nature’s Valley. Spring is the best time to visit, with ideal temperatures and abundant plant life. Those feeling brave can stop o at Bloukrans Bridge in the Tsitsikamma area to do the 709ft bungee jump — the tallest commercial bungee in the world.
DDuration: Two days
Area: Panorama Route (Mpumalanga)
Itinerary: Aptly named, the picturesque Panorama Route carves its way through thick forests and alongside the tumbling spray of Lisbon Falls. Admire Bourke Luck Potholes from the bridges arching over this natural wonder. The route includes the Blyde River Canyon, and further along, God’s Window looks over the Drakensberg Escarpment. Try to arrange to be at Blyde River Canyon for the stunning sunrise.
DDuration: Seven days
Area: Wild Coast (Eastern Cape/KwaZulu-Natal)
Itinerary: Fly into Port Elizabeth and explore this coastal section of the Eastern Cape before flying out of Durban. This region of wild and rugged cliff-lined beaches, valleys, forests and undeveloped wilderness also stretches inland, covering rolling hills and beautiful landscapes. Coffee Bay is one of the world’s most remote and wild beaches. It’s long been a popular surfing spot, particularly for beginners, because of the gentle gradient of its main beach. Take a day trip to the much-photographed Hole in the Wall, an amazing geological feature carved out of rock by the crashing of waves. Morgans Bay is a pretty, tranquil resort near East London, surrounded by natural beauty. Sheer rock cliffs, covered in wild flowers, plunge down to the sea. Head for Double Mouth for fishing, and to search for chips of porcelain and beads from the 17th-century shipwreck of the Santo Espirito, a Portuguese vessel carrying Ming china and Carnelian beads that sank off shore. Port St Johns is approached along a steaming river surrounded by jungle. The vibrant small town is known as the Jewel of the Wild Coast, and is an excellent place to experience Xhosa culture. Dense bush surrounds the town, and it doesn’t take long to reach silent forests or secluded beaches.
