The magic of the Cape on a self-drive or privately guided trip.
This is a classic but not a standard itinerary to explore the Cape region. It’s classic, as all main highlights to see and do are included. It’s not standard though, as we don’t recommend a stay of 2-3 nights, but a minimum of 5. This allows you to enjoy 4 full days, which are just enough to make a selection of available activities and excursions. On the other hand, assuming the Cape won’t be the only destination of your trip to South Africa, we have to give it a limit.
A stay of 5 nights is mean to use Cape Town as a base from where to explore not only the beautiful mother city, but part of the region.
This being a self-drive itinerary (though feasible as a private guided tour as well), the programme detailed in the day-by-day itinerary is to be intended as merely approximate. Also bear in mind that some activities are seasonal or weather dependent. The order we gave to the day-by-day plan is purely fortuitous and subject to change according to your will, availability or weather conditions. Last but not least, this programme can be entirely customized according to your interests and budget. Do not hesitate to ask for tailor-made adjustments.
This itinerary can be extended as you please, or combined with one or more of the following options, to name but a few:
a safari experience in the Sanbona Wildlife Reserve;
drive to the Kgalagadi Transfrontiers Park via the Atlantic coast;
admire the flower explosion in the Namaqua NP in August and September;
discover the bush and the beaches of Kwa-Zulu Natal;
a safari experience in the Kruger area;
a trip through the Garden Route to the Greater Addo NP, in the Eastern Cape.
