Join these three rescued elephants, as they walk to the nearby waterhole. Then, take to the water for a leisurely afternoon paddle along the reed-lined banks in Wilderness National Park region. It’s not until you stop paddling and let the gentle current guide you, that the abundance of birdlife becomes apparent.  The adventure continues as you reach Bloukrans Bridge, the world’s highest commercial bridge bungy jump. Opt in to hurtle face-first down the 134 (216 m) drop or those who'd prefer to keep their feet on solid ground will visit the nearby forest area near Tsitsikamma.

Our guide Ulrich arrived promptly. We had already checked in online so it was off straight away. We were the only two on the tour so it was like a private tour. We were taken to three amazing vineyards in stunning settings. Ulrich was so knowledgeable about the wines, as were of course the vineyard staff. We tasted some wines made from grapes that we don’t really see back home. Had a cheese platter at one of the vineyards. All in all just an amazing day. Highway recommended.

Our tour-guide Tuikke was great. Helpful , kind , good vibes, informative but in a fun way. The three days were absolutely great, very busy and many things to see and catch up with. 12 ppl were on the tour , the general mood was great as well, everyone chill and ready to make compromises for the sake of others. On the last day on the safari we couldn’t find as many animals as we wanted to , but this is how nature works . Everything was worth to see.

Very nice tour! Overall, the trip was great fun and very informative. Our guide Neville was just great! He was very committed, explained a lot to us and spread a good mood. The game drive in the beautiful reserve was the most fun. I would have loved to have spent more time there.

Thank you Ronnie, Your knowledge and professionalism made our day very special. Thank you too for being so kind and friendly…you are a star.

Our guide Dohann was very friendly and accommodating on the time we spent in each winery, arrived on time and a pleasure to be with.
