Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • Pick up/drop off points: Cape Town central (central business district, Camps Bay, Sea Point, Green Point, Observatory, Rondebosch), the airport, or Stellenbosch. Please contact us if you need to arrange pick up outside of these areas.
  • The company reserves the right to change itinerary, accommodation, and transport along the way should circumstances dictate. Many of these outdoor activities are weather dependent, which could force changes in the itinerary. The guide will try his or her best to arrange events according to prevailing weather conditions.
  • We have space for each passenger to have one suitcase/backpack and one “carry-on”-sized piece of luggage – a laptop bag, backpack, or similar. There are generally not porters or staff available to assist with luggage – your luggage should be of a size and weight you can comfortably manage. Hard or soft suitcases are fine. If you have more luggage than this, please contact us in advance to make alternative arrangements, as our trailers are only designed to fit one suitcase per person.
  • The vehicles that we will be touring in are fully air-conditioned and can comfortably seat 8 adults including driver/guide or 14 adults including driver/guide. The seats in our 14-seater vans are comparable in size to an airplane seat – if you are uncomfortable in that set up, please enquire about a private tour, so we can arrange a different vehicle.
  • This is an active tour. It is best suited towards those who like to be on the move, and can comfortably walk, carry luggage, get in and out of the vehicle frequently, etc. The group is almost always a mix between backpackers and guesthouse clients, and ages can range from 18 to…we don’t set an upper age limit, but generally about 65. Our average age is 33. Our groups range between 4-12 people, with most guests hailing from Europe, America, Canada, and Australia. The group tour is perfect for the solo traveller, small groups of friends, or couples, as you will have the opportunity to travel with a diverse group of people from all over the world.
  • Breakfasts are included on days 2-4, and typically include fruit, muesli, eggs, toast, yogurt, and cereals. Two dinners are also included, and are authentic South African meals, such as potjie (stew) and braai (barbeque). Please advise us of any special dietary requirements in advance. We are able to cater for vegetarian diets, but not strict gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan or halal diets. Lunch and drinks are on guests’ own account. Dinners for all clients, including those staying at the guesthouse, take place at the backpackers on nights 1 and 3.
  • All tours are conducted in English. We ask that while you are in the group, you make an effort to speak English, so that everyone can be included in the conversation.
  • Our tours take place in a malaria-free area, so no anti-malaria precautions are necessary. You are however advised to bring insect repellent during summer.
  • Most guests come away with incredible photos of their week, and share those photos among the group. We like to use tour photos in social media and promotional materials. If you do not wish for your photo or image to be used in this way, please let us know in advance.
  • Please wear clothes that you are comfortable in. This tour includes several hikes and walks, so comfortable shoes are essential. No special hiking boots are needed. A small backpack would be useful on the hike. A rain jacket is a good idea, as well as a sweater or jacket for the cool evenings by the sea. Bring a hat; the African sun can be intense! Also bring a hat & gloves in winter – the open game-viewing vehicle can be quite chilly in winter.
  • The Garden Route has a Mediterranean climate, which is pleasant to visit all year round. It gets rainfall throughout the year, mostly at night (you can imagine why it’s called the Garden Route!) Temperatures in winter range between 6-21 degrees Celsius (C), and summer temperatures range between 17-30 degrees C. This tour also goes into the Little Karoo, where temperatures can get as high as 40 C in summer, and zero degrees C in winter.
  • It is strongly recommended that you hold comprehensive travel insurance to safeguard you against possible unforeseen emergency and theft. Earthstompers has comprehensive passenger and public liability insurance, but this does not cover the theft of guests' personal belongings.
  • Earthstompers, or its employees and agents shall not be responsible for and shall be exempt from any liability in respect of loss, damage, injury, accident, delay or inconvenience to any person or their luggage or other personal property under any circumstances whatsoever whilst on tour.
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 12 travellers
