WELCOME TO GECKO TRAVEL & TOURS

Gecko Travel & Tours invites you to make memories that will last a lifetime while we take the stress out of travelling. Discover the vibrancy and beauty of Cape Town and the Garden Route on a luxury, private tour. Tailor-make your tour to your perfection where we stop and go at your pace, or tee off on some of South Africa’s best courses on our exclusive golf tours. Our tours take place in luxury sedans, 8-seater or 13-seater vehicles. All our vehicles are air-conditioned and large trailers ensure that there is ample space for your luggage. All overnight accommodation is at 4- and 5 star establishments.

Our tour destinations in and around Cape Town include the Cape Peninsula where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet, beautiful Table Mountain, Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned and the Cape Winelands, home to some of the world’s best-loved vineyards.

Our Garden Route tours visit Oudtshoorn, Knysna, Tsitsikamma and Plettenberg Bay. Ride an ostrich in Oudtshoorn and explore the Cango Caves. Search Knysna’s indigenous forests for the elusive elephants and enjoy a sunset champagne cruise on the Knysna Lagoon. Attempt the world’s highest bungee jump on your way to the Tsitsikamma National Park. Take to the water at Plettenberg Bay, enjoy spectacular land-based whale watching and get reacquainted with your wild side with spectacular animal experiences. You will be astounded at what the Garden Route has to offer.

Our par for the course golf tours invite you to play some of South Africa’s most beautiful courses. Played alongside stretches of parkland, lakes and the stunning southern coastline, the best courses from Cape Town to the Garden Route boast incredible views of the estuaries, oceans, mountains and indigenous Cape fynbos. With views like these, you’ll struggle to keep your head down! Our preferred courses offer an enjoyable, yet challenging day of golf and include the Jack Nicklaus Signature courses at Pearl Valley Golf Club and the Simola Golf and Country Estate, as well as the Gary Player-designed Montagu course and the Outeniqua course at Fancourt. Others played on our tours include courses at De Zalze, Arabella, Pinnacle Point and Pezula. The only drive you’ll have to worry about, is the one you make on the fairways.
