Summary Of The Route and Costs

The Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel is home to the only designer Rooftop Airstream Trailer Park in the world and the 7 authentic Airstream trailers each have their own individual decor theme and collectively reflect a typically South African road trip. The Airstream trailers are incredible works of craftsmanship and their classic shape is unforgettably iconic.
You will have use of a hire car for a couple of days while in the city too, enabling you to explore further afield and also drive yourself back to the airport on your last day in Cape Town, where you will catch a flight across to Port Elizabeth for your 3 night safari.
The secluded Quatermains Camp really captures the pioneering spirit of a safari. Intimate and rustic, this 3* expedition style tented camp offers guests the opportunity to experience the romance of those early safari days coupled with superb game viewing. Each day you'll set off on 2 game drives through the Amakhala Game Reserve in search of wildlife. Guided by an experienced ranger on an open safari vehicle, look for the Big 5, black wildebeest, cheetah, giraffe, zebra and numerous antelope. At night, relax in the boma area around an open fire, followed by dinner served under a blanket of stars.
