Get active on the Garden Route

The Garden Route is steeped in magnificent scenery, from endless beaches to peaceful lagoons and dense woodland. Hike through the forested trails of Tsitsikamma National Park and wander around the rocky headlands of Hermanus, where dolphins play in the surf under the cliffs and whale tails disappear into the waves. Stand on the southern tip of the continent, climb to staggering mountain passes and stroll between sun-kissed vineyards in the rolling Cape Winelands.

Discover the Drakensberg Mountains

Stay in the gorgeous Champagne Valley of the majestic Drakensberg Mountains and set out on foot to feel totally tiny. Follow small trails between rich green mountains, spot black eagles and descend into valleys dotted with trickling rivers. Peaceful and staggeringly beautiful, it’s a real trekker’s delight, with soaring views at every step. It’s a wonderful way to feel lost in the gorgeous wilderness.

Explore secluded Swaziland

Swaziland is a fascinating landlocked kingdom nestled between South African provinces, with beautiful landscape and a lively tribal culture. The reserve is home to zebras, antelopes, boars and many birds, so keep your eyes peeled as you walk. It’s a remote and untamed area that makes for a real trekking adventure, so if you’re eager to get off the beaten track, you’re in for a treat.
