Tailor-made options

As with nearly all our sample itineraries, it can be tailor-made to suit you and your interests and time-frame. Though we don’t recommend cutting it down in length by more than a night... As this is a sample itinerary, you can also reverse the trip and start in Johannesburg and end in Cape Town.

If you have more time, we would recommend adding a night en route to the Garden Route. Perhaps at the beautiful Hermanus or Swellendam. A second night in Swaziland is also recommended or perhaps more time on safari? Note you can also drop the car at a nearer airport and fly back to Johannesburg if you prefer not to drive.
