South Africa Getaway to the Eastern Cape

Try to spot untamed animals on an exciting game drive, sail the bay at sunset & stay at a family-friendly resort on this special DreamTrip for South Africa residents.

About Your Trip

Residents of South Africa — head to the Eastern Cape for a well-deserved break from your daily routine with this DreamTrip designed especially for you! You’ll begin your family-friendly adventure in the bustling port city of Port Elizabeth, or PE, getting to know your fellow DreamTrippers during a delightful welcome reception and dinner. The following day, it’s off to Addo Elephant National Park for an unforgettable game-view drive. You may encounter free-roaming wildlife in this scenic wildlife conservation area, including buffaloes, elephants and rhinos — don’t forget to bring your camera! Your second outing takes you on a sunset cruise on Algoa Bay to Cape Recife Lighthouse. Along the way, you’ll marvel at the beaches and cityscape as the sun sets on the horizon — be sure to keep an eye out for more possible wildlife sightings!

During your leisure time, why not head out to explore PE on your own? The city center is ideal to explore on foot. Attractions include the Campanile memorial monument, Market Square, Port Elizabeth Museum and Donkin Reserve. If you’d rather stay close to the hotel, you’ll still find plenty to do since your lodgings are part of a much larger resort complex that allows guests access to all its amenities. Hang with friends and family by the sparkling pool or walk to the Blue Flag beach for some sand and surf. In need of some pampering? Head-to-toe treatments are available at Camelot Spa. Plus, there’s an arcade, casino and enough activities and entertainment to keep everyone in the family amused.

What we love:
• Addo Elephant National Park, South Africa’s third largest national park, is home to a breeding station for the flightless dung beetle to ensure its conservation.
• One of the best ways to get to know PE is via Donkin Heritage Trail, a self-guided walking route that identifies 51 places of historical and cultural interest.
• To maximize your enjoyment, download the DreamTrips™ app to access DreamTrips Local — then earn points on dining, entertainment, spa experiences & more at select spots recommended by DreamTrippers just like you!
