Our adventure begins upon arrival in Johannesburg. From here we travel together in the morning to the Pilanesberg National Park, where we spend the night in a resort. There we go on Big Five Safaris for 2 days and explore our first canyon. We drive through the African bush in search of lions, elephants and rhinos, enjoy a local BBQ and relax in this special atmosphere. We start our outdoor activities with the Grootkloof Canyon.

On day 6 we travel on to Port Elizabeth in the morning by domestic flight and end the day with surfing in the Indian Ocean. The next few days we travel the “Garden Route” towards Cape Town. We travel together in a van, spend the night in selected accommodations, hostels or holiday homes and experience the special features of the respective location.
