Garden Route South Africa

South Africa Landmarks

Study trips and round trips in South Africa take you to a multifaceted country on the other side of the equator. South Africa – the rainbow nation offers you a colorful spectrum of peoples, cultures and religions, of landscapes and animal worlds and of pulsating metropolises.

Take a study tour through the Republic of South Africa, which borders the Indian Ocean to the south and southeast and the Atlantic Ocean to the west! In many cases, cross-border combined trips are also offered with the neighboring countries Swaziland, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Bostwana or Namibia. Multifaceted landscapes and exciting places in South Africa
An impressive variety awaits you on a tour through South Africa: animal-rich bushland, semi-desert, idyllic wine-growing areas with excellent wines, dreamy sandy beaches, wild canyons and impressive forests. Relax on the sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean around Durban, marvel at the imposing Drakensberg Mountains or take a boat trip on the Blyde River Canyon.

The realm of wild animals

South Africa offers you not only many sights and an exciting present, but also a fascinating animal world. A safari in one of the national parks is almost always part of the itinerary of study trips or tours in South Africa. Go in search of clues (of course, accompanied) in an open off-road vehicle. This travel day will be a very special experience. With a little luck you can see the Big Five in the wild: elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards and buffalos. Such a safari becomes an adventure trip of its own for nature lovers and photographers.
A South Africa tour will definitely give you unforgettable impressions, so that you will be happy to take on the somewhat longer flight. In order to support an authentic travel experience, accommodation is not always only in hotels, but also in camps or lodges. All accommodations are carefully selected by the organizers.

Garden Route

along the south coast of South Africa

The region, which is called Tuinroete in the Afrikaans language, is characterized by blooming landscapes. Fruits and vegetables are harvested several times a year. A lush variety of flowers delights the hearts. The unique natural paradise stretches from the coast of the Indian Ocean to the semi-desert of the Little Karoo. Past the port city of Port Elizabeth, Knysna, Cape St. Francis, the world-famous Addo Elephant Park and Mossel Bay, guests arrive at the popular ostrich farms near Cape Town. The national road N2, which runs right through the Garden Route region, is one of the most popular roads in the world for tourists. Hundreds of thousands of people are amazed by the diversity of South Africa’s flora every year. The places George, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay are located directly on the coast. Close to Port Elizabeth is Jeffreys Bay, one of the country’s most popular surfing spots. Water sports are of great importance on all beaches in South Africa.

Garden Route tourist magnets

Two destinations that every traveler should see on a study tour along the Garden Route are the Knysna lagoon landscape and the Garden Route National Park. The Knysna Lagoon can be visited by boat. The way to the open sea near Knysna is one of the most dangerous shipping routes in the world. The excursions therefore lead along the shoreline within the dreamy lagoon. Eating oysters in one of the oyster restaurants is also part of the excursion to Knysna. Beautiful pearls are coveted souvenirs from the lagoon town. The Garden Route National Park was created in 2009 from several smaller parks and other pieces of land. Original forests and countless animal species can be found in the park. Dolphins, whales and penguins can be seen in many coastal locations.

Study trips and fun

A visit to the Garden Route region is always on the program on a tour of South Africa. This world-famous landscape not only inspires with unique scenic experiences and a diverse animal world. There is also the opportunity to practice numerous water sports on a study trip. Bathing in the Indian Ocean as well as surfing and diving are among the sports that are popular in South Africa. But diving in a cage in the midst of sharks is an attraction for tourists that they can hardly experience in any other country.
