Start planning your motorhome holiday along South Africa's Garden Route with this suggested two-week itinerary, which takes in vineyards, mountains, national parks and beaches.
Tailor-you’re your experience as you wish by adding or removing destinations, and if you want to extend your trip, there are lots of additional places to see along the way.


DAY 1 - 2
Fly overnight to Cape Town, pick up your motorhome and start your South African adventure.
DAY 3 - 4
Using Stellenbosch as your base, discover the fabulous Cape Winelands region and fill your wine rack with some of South Africa’s finest wines. Stellenbosch itself is a quiet, relaxing place within a picturesque valley. 
Continue east towards the town of Montagu and into the vast expanse of the Klein Karoo. Montagu is known for its hot mineral springs and mountain views, while fruit orchards are abundant in the 'Koo' farming area.
Take the long, scenic drive east through the Klein Karoo to Oudtshoorn - known as the ostrich capital of South Africa.

Members on previous trips have recommended the Cango Caves, an ecological environment and Africa's largest show cave system. The region is framed by the spectacular Swartberg mountain range, part of the Cape Floral World Heritage Site.
DAY 7 - 8
Travel southeast towards the Indian Ocean and Tsitsikamma National Park. Here you'll find the highest bridge bungee jump in the world at Bloukrans Bridge. It's also home to indigenous forests, a glorious coastline and the Otter Trail - a coastal hiking path so-named due to the local Cape Clawless Otter.
Make your way to Wilderness National Park to enjoy a day of riverside walks and beach views, passing through the pleasant towns of Plettenburg Bay and Knysna.
DAY 10
Head away from the Indian Ocean back into the Klein Karoo to the pretty town of Swellendam.
DAY 11 - 12
Make your way to the southwest coast and the seaside town of Hermanus, a popular spot for wildlife and whale watching. Whales can be seen both from land and from boat tours, and the town even has its own whale crier who calls these wonderful creatures close to the shore.
DAY 13
Travel back to Cape Town.
DAY 14
Return your motorhome and take the evening flight back to London.
