Visit South Africa on the Peace Boat – Travel Republic Africa

The Peace Boat is truly one of those ‘bucket list’ holidays. Travelers on the Peace Boat get
the ultimate holiday experience of a round-the-world cruise, with opportunities to visit
anywhere from 14 to 23 different countries. The Peace Boat itinerary is constantly changing,
but every second or third cruise, it comes past South Africa, visiting Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.

A group of Peace Boat passengers on the 116th cruise recently got hold of Travel Republic
Africa because they wanted to see more of South Africa than what they would have seen
from their cabin windows. So, we tailored an all-inclusive holiday package tour just for
them, which allowed them to disembark the ship in Cape Town and travel up the world-
famous Garden Route before embarking again in Port Elizabeth. Keep reading to find out
more about this amazing experience.

Things to do on the Garden Route

Travelling the Garden Route is considered the ultimate South African road trip. Covering the
coastline between Port Elizabeth to Cape Town, the Garden Route offers everything you’d
want to see on a South African holiday, including world-class beaches, clear lagoons, lush
forests, unique fynbos vegetation, and welcoming small towns with top-rated hotels.

Adventure awaits at attractions along the way, such as
Plettenberg Bay’s monkey and bird sanctuaries where you can get up close and personal
with indigenous wildlife, Oudtshoorn’s ostrich and crocodile farms where you can even go
crocodile cage diving, and bungee jumping from the famous Bloukrans Bridge – the world’s
highest commercial bungee bridge.

If you’re lucky enough to visit between June and November, you may even get to see the
Southern Right Whale migration as it passes through Hermanus, considered to be the
world’s premier site for whale watching.
