Beautiful beaches lapped by two oceans, starry desert skies, incredible mountains and one of the continent's best safari destinations – South Africa is a country of astounding diversity. Create memories that will last a lifetime with your family on this self-drive adventure of the famous ‘Garden Route’.
Jet off with Qatar Airways and break up the journey in Qatar. Relax, unwind and enjoy all Doha has to offer – why not spend an evening in the Souq Waqif, a 19th century bazaar, famous for exotic spices, handmade shoes and jewellery, before staying at the Grand Hyatt Doha Hotel and experience colourful gardens and spectacular views over the Doha skyline.
Next stop Cape Town, South Africa. Looked over by iconic Table Mountain, Cape Town is South Africa’s most accessible gateway, with gorgeous beaches, vibrant, multicultural neighbourhoods, famous vineyards, a lively nightlife and fine dining choices.
Your family’s South African adventure begins with a three-night stay at the Protea Hotel Waterfront Breakwater Lodge in Cape Town. Located at the gateway to the charming Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, you’ll be ideally placed to explore the many attractions of this cosmopolitan city. Catch a cable car up the iconic Table Mountain for some truly awe-inspiring views, visit the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens or pop along to see the playful penguins at Boulders Beach.
Leaving Cape Town behind, you’ll make the journey to Stellenbosch in the heart of the Cape Winelands, where you’ll stay for two nights at The Stellenbosch Hotel. Located in a historical building this hotel exudes character and charm and you and your family will be just minutes away from the myriad of boutiques, museums and wine estates that historic Stellenbosch has to offer.
From here you will go to Knysna for two more nights at the Protea Hotel. Facing the warm Indian Ocean through the Knysna Heads, this hotel offers a tranquil stay while overlooking the Knysna lagoon, historical train station and Knysna town.
To finish off this incredible holiday, you will spend two nights at Hlosi Game Lodge-Amakhala Game Game Reserve located in South Africa's Eastern Cape. Each day begins with a morning safari as the sun brings the bush to life. During evening game drives you may be lucky enough to witness the thrill of a lion hunt, be surrounded by a herd of elephant, or watch as a family of hippo emerge from the water for a night of grazing. As nocturnal life begins to stir, return safely to the lodge for a hearty dinner. The reserve is situated along the Garden Route, making it the perfect South African safari destination to compliment a Cape Town visit and a trip along the country’s beautiful coast.
