Garden Route Highlights

On this exciting four day tour you will see how everything in the Garden is rosy as you head north from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth visiting all the places of interest on route. The Garden Route is renowned for its beauty and on your journey you will call in at an ostrich farm, tour spectacular caves, get up close to the animals at an elephant park and tour a national park. This trip makes a great diversion while holidaying in the Rainbow Nation.

What 3542 customers thought of Africa

The accommodation in SA was fantastic. The Qatar flights were not great. Excellent plane with reasonable legroom but the food and offhand service were shocking - to the extent that we would not choose that airline again.

We were pleasantly surprised to learn that the Mazagan Beach hotel does offer complimentary courtesy bus to Casablanca airport. Very useful since this would be a one hour taxi fare

Would love to know the baggage allowance in advance when booking rather than having to go the airline's website to find out. Other than that everything else perfect.

BA's handling of firearms is a fiasco. An expensive fiasco. The protocol BA told you did not match what T3 security chose to do, and G4 [the outsource that manages firearms paperwork landside] stated that T3 security are out of step with T5 security AND head office. I paid an additional £315 to get my rifle onto BA059 and charging for the carriage of the ammunition case per a second firearm is a travesty. I am appalled at BA's lack of professionalism in central bookings, in T3 security and their T3 ticketing.
