South Africa. Visit a world in one country.

Travel the scenic and majestic Garden Route and see some of the largest elephant herds in the world at Addo Elephant National Park. You will have opportunities to interact with locals, see how they live, work and play. 

The experience of overnighting with a host family brings you close to the community of the original Goedverwacht Mission Station. Learn about the history beginning during the slave era and meet today’s locals to enjoy the hospitality offered by this community.

Enjoy the scenic diversity. There’s time for some beach and swimming on the way. Be impressed by Africa’s largest herds of elephant and whilst game viewing, try to spot the others of the Big 5, lion, leopard, buffalo or rhinoceros.
