South Africa’s Garden Route

This stunning optional tour covers over 125 miles of coastal roads which is home to a range of vegetation and wildlife nestled between the Indian Ocean and the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountains.


Be swept up into the idyll of tropical island paradise with the stunning Eureka plantation house and Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Gardens.


Discover the Spice Island of Africa with a stop in Zanzibar, home to nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper production.


Why not take an optional overnight trip to the Tsavo East National Park, home to the largest protected area in Kenya and herds of dust-red elephants, rhino, lions and hippos.


Mahé and Praslin are a nature lovers paradise boasting rare and UNESCO heritage protected plant species and unique animals aplenty.


If you’re not tempted by an excursion to the Taj Mahal, take in some of Cochin’s fascinating cultural legacy before visiting the intoxicating city of Mumbai.


Visit the lost city of Petra - estimated to date back to 6,000 B.C. - and Wadi Rum, where T.E. Lawrence found his destiny as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’.
