No trip to South Africa, and Cape Town in particular, is complete without taking the famous Garden Route. 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.

I would just suggest that for single parents flying to South Africa with children as I did, that you advise them at the earliest opportunity of the SA Home Affairs Affidavit that needs to be legally witnessed and signed by the non travelling parent in order to enter SA. Its not always easy to negotiate with ex spouses so as much notice as possible would be useful! I only received the BA notification 2 weeks before my flight though luckily already knew what was required.
