6 Day Cape to Addo Safari

24 reviews
This incredible South African ecotour offers the chance to swim with great white sharks, jump from the world’s highest bungee and zipline through a treetop obstacle course. Or you can opt for the chill version and simply enjoy cliff-top whale watching, canoeing, game tracking, hiking through national forests and relaxing on beautiful beaches. Whichever route you prefer, this adventure tour of the Cape Peninsula from Cape town will not disappoint.

We were a party of two families including four kids ages 5-10 years old, and we slackpacked with Mark and with the support of Amanda in October 2020. Hands down, amazing trip!! Though we have lived in South Africa for ten years, Mark brought us to gorgeous and varied places we wouldn't have found on our own. The kids were so enthralled with how he brought the flora and fauna to life that they didn't notice how many hours or kilometers they were walking. After we finished the trip, it was rather disappointing to revert to "ask google!", and we all missed Mark's guiding. We appreciated the style of accommodation each evening (comfortable parks self-catering lodges in stunning settings), and we also appreciated Mark and Amanda's cooking.

An absolutely fantastic adventure. We were 5 adults and 4 kids, ages 5-10. The scenery was great, the walking long but manageable even for the littlest ones, and our guide Mark was a fount of knowledge that kept the kids riveted on his stories and always eager for more. Also kept their minds off the long trail days. It was a nice blend of hiking and kayaking, with spectacular scenery. Dinners were a treat, home cooked and convivial. The lodges were comfortable, with spectacular views. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed a marvellous 5 day walk and canoe with Mark. The scenery was stunning and varied from forest and rivers to open beaches. The accommodation along the route was very comfortable including some amazing views. The highlight of the trip though was the incredible knowledge of our guide. Mark is a true scientist and he capably identified and described all of the diverse flora and fauna we encountered. He is also an accomplished cook and we ate very well. Thank you Mark for sharing your knowledge and looking after us so well. We highly recommend that anyone that wants to increase the knowledge of the natural world and gain a better appreciation of their surroundings, do this hike with Mark Dixon.
