Arrive at any time.
Tonight, get to know your group on your first night out together. Head to the Ansteys bar located in your accommodation for some drinks with your new travel buddies. Enjoy each other's company in a low key setting before getting a good night's rest for the long, but exciting journey ahead. Explore the beach and dive into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean just out the front door of our guest house.
The group is on the move again to an even cooler hidden gem in South Africa; Chinsta. You'll travel overland into the heartland of the Xhosa people before arriving in this little piece of paradise along the south east coast of Africa with 15km (9.3 mi) of beach. While it is a long day of travel the views you stumble across will certainly make up for it, especially, the main white-sand beach with a swimmable surf (skinny dipping tonight anyone)? South of Durban, travel to the Eastern Cape province, into the heartland of the Xhosa people, and on to Chintsa.
As the sun rises in the sky along the ocean pure paradise awaits you on this free day to explore Chintsa. You could spend the day getting your tan on at the beach, jumping on a surfboard to catch some waves, horseback riding along the water, or visiting a local craft brewery called Emerald Vale for some home-brewed ale. The choice is yours, but we know that no matter what you decide it will be a good time.
Feeling even more adventurous? You could cycle or jump on the bus to Mama Tofu's Xhosa village for an inspiring cultural experience as well.
Traverse the many unique valleys in Southern Africa today as the group continues on to the Addo Elephant National Park; a unique wildlife area. Head out on a wildlife safari drive and listen to the wild sounds of Africa. After arriving at the camp area sit around the fire, share stories, and sip a sundowner (cheers!) as the stars light up the night sky.
Wake up in the African bush amidst acacia trees with the sounds of nature as your alarm clock. From here the group will be going to Tsitsikamma NP where you can choose to hike, snorkel, canoe, whale watch, or bungee jump.
Tsitsikama is tucked between mountains and deep blue sea with the Storms River flowing in between. Full of vibrant marine life, abundant wildlife, and a breathtaking landscape this is a wonderful home base for the next two nights of camping in this area. Some of the optional activities include hiking a portion of the Otter Trail or taking short walks along the coastline.
There's so much to do in this wonderful place so wake up and get moving! Today, depending on your mood you can do any of the activities you didn't get to yesterday.
Rejuvenate your minds on a hike up the Otter or Dolphin trails, set out on a kayak to explore the shoreline, book a snorkelling or scuba lesson to see life under the sea or feel the adrenaline coursing through your veins while you bungee jump. Whatever you decide your only job is to have fun and make some memories!
Even though you may not want to, it is time to leave this place and head further west to the town of Knysna. But don't worry there's plenty of beauty to be seen at the Knysna Lagoon ?? think turquoise waters, rugged sandstone cliffs, and sweeping views of the ocean. (sounds nice right?) Along the way you can choose to visit a cheetah sanctuary or monkey park?? or maybe both?
You will be heading from sea cliffs to cool caves on this leg of the trip. After taking numerous selfies and group photos atop the cliffs of Knysna Heads the Lando will drive along the scenic route over the Outeniqua Mountains into the area known as Klein Karoo ("Little Karoo"), and make the quiet town of Oudtshoorn your base. Once here it's cave time?? or ostrich time depending on your mood. Grab some friends and head out to explore the Cango caves or visit an ostrich farm and give these cute creatures some love.
It's the group's last travel day so have some fun! Travel to the beautiful cosmopolitan city of Cape Town enjoying the impressive views of Table Mountain as you drive. And hey a little party never hurt anyone so why not choose to head out for a final night of good times with your G travel family?
Depart at any time.
But why would you want to right? If you aren't ready to go home yet that's totally fine just talk with your CEO about extending your adventure and get to know more of South Africa or beyond! We highly recommend booking an extra night in Cape Town to explore all that this area has to offer.
