The Doornbos Family met with Janneke Scherpenhuyzen at the Vakantiebeurs and planned this tour with us. Golden Gate National Park – Drakensberg – Oribi Gorge – Umgazi – Coffee Bay – Chintsa – Safari – Plettenberg Bay – Hermanus – Franschhoek – Cape Town in 3 weeks. The family were amazing and got to experience some unique and hidden gems along the way.
The Doornbos Family flew in to Johannesburg International Airport where we met them for the start of their South African adventure. The first stop was Golden Gate National Park with welcomed sunset drinks on top of the Brandwag Buttress. day 2 saw us hiking to caves, rope ladders, scenic drives, first bit of wildlife and incredible views before checking in at Northern Drakensberg for a few nights. The group hiked up Sentinel Peak to Tugela Falls, second tallest waterfall behind Angel Falls. Another half days drive took us to The Sani Pass Premier Hotel for 2 nights to visit Lesotho, Sani Pass and the Highest Pub in Africa. Oribi Gorge was next on the list for incredible walks, views, activity options like the highest gorge swing in the world, abseiling etc. It was time for some ocean after all the mountains so the tour continued to Umngazi River Resort and Spa for complete relax time and then Coffee Bay to hike the Hole-in-the-wall and Chintsa. After relax time at the coast we had them booked in at two different safari destinations to get their fix of wildlife, tented camping, game drives, log fires and great Eastern Cape hospitality as it has been known for.
SELF DRIVE SECTION: So to give the group a break from the Guides, we planned a self-drive route from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town for the Family, as a private adventure. The Family visited Plettenberg Bay, Hermanus, Franschhoek and Cape Town seeing the best destinations and activities in the area including Wine trams, Cape Point, Table Mountain, Robben Island, Camps Bay, Chapman’s Peak drive and plenty more. All in all, a fun, spontaneous Family up for adventure and good times, with a healthy humorous approach to life. It was a pleasure putting together all the finer details for this tour to be a success, and even more rewarding seeing it all come together nicely for them.
