Wonders of the Cape Tour
10 Days / 9 Nights – 19 to 28 November 2017
Bushward Safaris is all about adventure, great experiences, and creating memories that will last forever. On this tour, our travels take us South towards the Wonders of the Cape. We come close to nature, African animals, enjoy adventure activities, take in breathtaking views and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Cape Town.
The Wonders of the Cape Tour will be running during the month of November in South Africa. This fun- and adventure filled tour has been compiled to make sure that the participants will experience and participate in activities that will bring them closer to adventure and nature. Not only will they experience great adventures but they will also gain insight and knowledge of wildlife, nature conservation and South African history.
Professional registered service providers host all activities and client safety is always the number one priority. Expect superior knowledge and professionalism from our guides; they are experienced in the Wildlife & Environmental management, Nature conservation and Tourism industries and registered with the Field Guides Association of South Africa and South African Tourism.
Day 1 & 2 – Gauteng, Colesberg, Stormsriver – (B, L, D)
We leave early from Gauteng and head south towards Colesberg where we overnight. We spend most of the days travelling and gaining insight of what lies ahead on our tour. We arrive midafternoon in Stormsriver where we get the chance to get some fresh air in the surrounding forests on Segway scooters.
Day 3 & 4 – Tsitsikamma area and attractions (B, L, D)
During our time in Tsitsikamma we will be going into the forest to see and experience forest life and visit the forest on a different level… treetop level! We spend one of our mornings doing canopy tours in small groups of 8 and visit a local beach. While we are here we go kayaking on one of the rivers and enjoy breathtaking views and scenery along the way.
Day 5 – Garden & Coastal Route (B, L, D)
We head for Cape Town along the way we enjoy breathtaking views of the Garden and Coastal routes on our way to Cape Town. We stop at a local Aloe factory shop and enjoy lunch en-route.
Day 6 to 8 – Cape Town & Attractions (B, L, D)
During our stay we visit a variety of attractions and activities, depending on weather conditions we will plan most of the activities a day or two in advance. While we are in the Mother City we plan to do the following:
- Visit the world-renowned Robben Island
- Table Mountain, Hout Bay where we enjoy a boat cruise to visit the local Seal colony, Cape point nature reserve where we visit Cape of Good Hope – the most South Westerly point in Africa.
- We explore the Hop-on-hop-off city tour by open top bus passing the city’s wonders and Signal Hill at night.

For the shopaholics there are a variety of shops and flea markets including V&A Waterfront and many more.
