This 14 Day Cape Town to Durban Tour incorporates Cape Town and some of the great roads of the Garden Route. It goes further along the coast to showcase the Drakensberg as well as some of the indigenous cultures of Southern Africa. Running from Cape Town to Durban, this tour gives a great overview of the different landscapes as well as the different cultures that are found within South Africa.
From the Cape Metropolis, we ride along winding coastal roads through lush Landscapes and the Overberg region, the breadbasket of the Western Cape. Then it goes onto the high plateau that is the interior of South Africa. Called the Karoo, this arid, semi-desert region is home to Route 62, the African equivalent to Route 66. We take some time to explore this area including the ostrich farming in the city of Oudtshoorn before we turn back to the coast to experience the Garden Route, a long stretch of coastal forests including the cities of Plettenberg Bay and Knysna.
Wild Africa is on the cards when we spend 2 days in a private game reserve to find the “Big 5”, Africa’s most dangerous animals. Back to civilization, we start immersing ourselves in the different indigenous cultures South Africa has to offer. Travelling along the Drakensberg, we will be visiting the Xhosa and Zulu Tribes as well as the Sotho.
This tour can be done at any time of the year, however, the time from October to April is best to travel through the Cape as it is the dry season. There might be some light rainfall in the Durban area all year round. From June to November there is a chance to see Southern Right Whales along the coast.
