Itinerary/Tour Details

This tour Package by Ghum India Ghum is customize for South Africa which is full of Thrill,Adventure and also is Dangerous at some point.

Day 01:- Cape Town-Gansbaai

Fly into Cape Town and then head to the little coastal town of Gansbaai in the Western Cape. Gansbaai is most famous for being close to Dyer Island, where lots of great white sharks can be found. But the real reason I'm suggesting you start out here is because the town is both beautiful and super laid-back, making it an excellent introduction to South Africa. Spend your first half-day strolling around the town and catching a beach-side sunset. When it comes to stay our pick is The Roundhouse, a locally-owned guesthouse that's very unique. It has a hot tub on the top deck with views out over the town and ocean, and the breakfasts can't be beatSpeaking of meals, definitely have one at Blue Goose, which serves up fresh local seafood and some of the tastiest South African beef.

Day 02:- Adventure: Shark cage diving or dune biking

One of the biggest draws of Gansbaai is, of course, the great white shark diving trips. I recommend going with Marine Dynamics because of their pledge to marine conservation, but most companies in Gansbaai (of which there are many!) offer very similar experiences. If shark cage diving doesn't appeal to you, you might want to get your adventure on by hitting the sand dunes on a fat bike instead. Roundhouse owner Dave Caravias also runs Fat bike Tours which offers up a few different tour options in the Gansbaai/Hermanus region. Whichever adventure you choose, you'll be back in Gansbaai by late afternoon. Decompress in the Roundhouse's hot tub, and enjoy another South African sunset.

Day 03:- Go to the southern tip of Africa

Many people incorrectly think that the Cape of Good Hope near Cape Town is the southernmost point of Africa. But this actually isn't true! The real southernmost point is at Cape Agulhas, about an hour and a half from Gansbaai. Visit the lighthouse here, as well as the point where the Indian and Pacific oceans meet. We stopped for lunch at the Pelican's Harbour Cafe in nearby Struisbaai, where I had the best (and cheapest!) seafood platter of my life. If you're up for more sightseeing (and a little extra driving) in the afternoon, consider heading north of Gansbaai to the Walker Bay wine region. I loved the tasting room at Creation Wines, located on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge.

Day 04:- Cape Town

Now that you've settled into the South African pace of life, it's time to head to the Mother City: Cape Town. It's about a 2-hour drive from Gansbaai to Cape Town, so you'll want to start off early in order to make the most of your first day in the city. Start your Cape Town explorations at the V&A Waterfront, home to South Africa's oldest working harbor, a huge shopping mall, a Ferris wheel, and a large collection of shops and restaurants, all within view of Table Mountain. One of my favorite parts of the waterfront is the Watershed, which is essentially a large converted warehouse that now houses more than 150 vendors selling everything from original art to vintage clothing. The V&A Waterfront is also where you'll find the ferries that will take you out to Robben Island, which is home to the prison where Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years of political imprisonment. Ferries depart every 1-2 hours from Nelson Mandela Gateway at the V&A Waterfront, and tours of Robben Island are conducted by former political prisoners. Whether you decide to spend your afternoon in the city or touring Robben Island, I suggest ending the day watching the sun set at Camps Bay, one of the more affluent areas of Cape Town. The beach at Camps Bay is nice, but at sunset the dying light paints the looming Twelve Apostles mountain range opposite the bay glow an otherworldly orange. It's absolutely beautiful and is a great way to end your first day in the city, overnight stay at hotel in Cape Town.

Day 05:- Cape Town Sightseeing

Start your morning off with a unique way of seeing Cape Town. My votes are either a helicopter tour, or a ride in the sidecar of a WWII-era motorcycle. Helicopter tours of Cape Town aren't a cheap outing, but it's one of the best ways to see Cape Town. Even on a cloudy day, the views over the city are nothing short of stunning. Or, if heights and flying isn’t really your thing, check out the city tours offered by Cape Sidecar Adventures. I did a short tour with them from Signal Hill to Hout Bay, which ended up being one of the coolest city tours I think I've ever taken! They offer a 2-hour tour that sounds like a perfect (and totally unique) introduction to Cape Town. Next, no trip to Cape Town would be complete without a visit to Table Mountain, which is the large, flat mountain that overlooks all of the Mother City. This symbol of the city isn't always visible (a cloud layer referred to as “the table cloth” often covers the mountain), but if you hit on a clear day you should definitely take the cable car to the top. The views out over Cape Town from Table Mountain are great – you'll see everything from Lion's Head to Devil's Peak to the Atlantic Ocean. After Table Mountain (or, in case the weather is uncooperative and you can't go up), head back into the city and visit Cape Town's most colorful neighborhood: Bo-Kaap. This small downtown neighborhood is known as the Cape Malay Quarter, and is known for its colorful houses, multicultural make-up, and great ethnic food.

Day 06:- Cape Peninsula / Boulders Beach

Cape Town is great, but you won't want to skip a trip to the Cape Peninsula if you have the opportunity to go. Start out with Chapman's Peak Drive, a cliff-hugging road that connects Hout Bay in Cape Town to Noordhoek. There are a few viewpoints along the drive, including one that offers some amazing views back towards Hout Bay. After the drive, make for Simon's Town and the famous Boulders Beach. Chances are you've already heard of Boulders Beach: it's the postcard-perfect beach that is also home to a colony of endangered African Penguins. You'll actually find three beaches here, but it's the boardwalks and penguin viewing area at Foxy Beach that gets the most attention. The beach at the far end of the protected area, though (the *actual* Boulders Beach) is one you can swim in – meaning you can totally swim with the penguins if there are any around! The Cape Peninsula ends at Cape Point at the Cape of Good Hope. Even though it's not actually the southernmost point in Africa, it's still pretty cool to visit. Cape Point is actually a nature reserve that's part of the larger Table Mountain National Park, so it's not uncommon to see wildlife here like baboons (beware – they are not nice!) and dassies (they kind of look like big guinea pigs). The most popular thing to do is to take the Flying Dutchman Funicular (or just hike) to the lighthouse at the top of Cape Point. From here, you get an incredible view out over the peninsula and ocean, and if you don't want to rent a car and drive yourself from Cape Town? You can book a full-day Cape Peninsula tour from Cape Town that will include all these highlights!

Day 07:- Sip wine in Stellenbosch

South Africa is known for its wine, and I'd be remiss if I didn't tell you to spend a day sipping some of the best. There's a wine region close to Cape Town – Constantia – that would make a great morning or afternoon trip. But if you have the whole day, I recommend heading to Stellenbosch. Located roughly an hour from Cape Town, this one of the country's best (and prettiest) wine regions.I visited Waterford Estate in Stellenbosch, which offers a unique “wine safari” that includes a ride out into the vineyards in a safari vehicle, followed by wine tastings on a raised wooden platform out in the middle of the vines. I'm not really much of a wine drinker, but this was still a highlight for me. Waterford Estate is STUNNING, and it was a pleasure to sip wines there in the middle of the vines. Stellenbosch has lots of wineries to choose from, and you can easily spend the entire day sipping away. Some other popular wineries in this region include Rust en Vrede, Delaire Graff Estate, and Tokara.

Day 08:- Cape Town to Johannesburg

After a week in the Western Cape, it's time to head to another part of South Africa. Many people skip Johannesburg entirely, but I do think South Africa's largest city is worth a visit. It's true that it's grittier than other parts of the country, but that doesn't mean that there aren't things to do here. A must-visit in Johannesburg is the Apartheid Museum (in Soweto), which chronicles the struggle South Africans faced during the country's decades of institutionalized racial segregation and discrimination. It's not a happy museum, but it's an important one to visit if you want to understand South Africa today. If you have time in the evening, consider a street art walking tour through the city, which will give you a glimpse into both the artsy and rebellious sides of Johannesburg, overnight stay at hotel.

Day 09:- Visit the Cradle of Humankind

For your second day in Johannesburg, you actually might want to book a tour out to Maropeng and the Sterkfontein Caves, or “the Cradle of Humankind.” This UNESCO World Heritage Site is where some of the world's most significant hominid discoveries have been made. Start out at the Maropeng visitor center, and then head to the caves for a guided tour. A visit to the caves is a bit adventurous (there's some crawling involved), but how often do you get the chance to visit the place where some of the earliest humans on earth lived?

Day 10:- Johannesburg-Kruger National

The absolute highlight of my time in South Africa was going on safari in Kruger National Park. So naturally I'm saving the best for last in this itinerary. You can fly from Johannesburg to Skukuza on South African Airways, which will get you to Kruger with plenty of time to enjoy lunch and an afternoon game drive on your very first day. There are tons of accommodation options to choose from in and around Kruger, and this is definitely a place where it's worth splurging on a really nice all-inclusive lodge. I stayed at the Jock Safari Lodge, which is a private concession within Kruger that I did not ever want to leave. The villas all come with soaker tubs, outdoor day beds overlooking a dry riverbed, and even private plunge pools. And the staff and rangers here are all incredible. After arriving, we had some time to explore the property and then left on our first game drive in the late afternoon. And we saw the Big 5 (buffalo, elephant, rhino, lion, and leopard) all within this first safari, overnight at jungle safari lodge.

Day 11:- Kruger National Park

You'll want to devote at least 2-3 nights to Kruger. Even though you might be thinking that one or two game drives will be enough, the truth is that you will never see the same thing twice on a game drive – meaning every single one is exciting and unique! Along with the Big 5, we saw things like lions mating, baby elephants charging our truck, a momma and new-born white rhino, wild dogs facing off with hyenas, and much, much more. Going on safari truly is a bucket-list-worthy activity, and even after 4+ game drives, I wasn't ready to leave!

Finally it’s time to fly back to wherever in the world home is.
