If you’re looking for our Matric Vac Trip for 2016, you’ve come to the wrong place. You’re looking for the Rumble. This way.
Eight stops. Four universities. Bring your drinking hand.
Although our road tripping schedule is pretty lenient, as it should be, there are a certain amount of kilometers we need to travel every day to complete the Mzansi Jive and get to our rest points every night. How long you take to get there on various days and what you do before the rest points is your own business. As guides, we can only guide, not demand. It’s your road trip, after all.
Rest Points will be shared in the detailed itinerary after booking.
|Rest Points||Minimum amount of kms you will need to drive every day to get through it. Yes, road tripping is not for the faint-hearted!|
|Day 2||Orange River||593|
|Day 5||Plettenberg Bay||163|
|Day 8||Cape Town||53|
Below are some of the awesome things you might want to do on the trip. Remember, these things will cost extra cash and you may choose not to do some of them. If so, there are many other things in the vicinity you can do and see instead and you will be recommended these by your guides. We do however, recommend the bulk of the below excursions as we feel they will enhance your road-tripping experience. You can find out how much spending money you require for all of the below in the Road Trip Starter Kit.Road Trip Starter Kit
Remember though: these awesome things are embedded into the very essence and spirit of the road trip itself and the many free and epic views, people, animals and towns we meet and see along the way – and of course, the parties we rock!
More details about itineraries will be shared with road trippers closer to the time.
|Resting Point||Some of the things that may tickle your fancy.|
|Day 1||Johannesburg||It’s Friday and its lunch time in Soweto. Perhaps some will bungee jump – others certainly won’t. Newtown party that night perhaps? Hold onto your hats round 1.|
|Day 2||Orange River||We’ll be on the river. Hungover campfire stories of the night before, no doubt.|
|Day 3||Rhodes University, Grahamstown.||Party at Rhodes University. Hold on to your hats round 2.|
|Day 4||Jeffrey’s Bay||Maybe we’ll surf, maybe we won’t. We’ll stop in at the White Lion Park on the way to a beach bar. This part of South Africa is hauntingly beautiful.|
|Day 5||Plettenberg Bay||The crazy among us will Bungee jump off Bloukrans on the way to Plett. Others will enjoy the sights and sounds of the garden route. We’ll end at a beach bar, almost guaranteed.|
|Day 6||Oudtshoorn||We’ll stop in at the Cango Caves beneath the karoo stars and sneak into the depths of the continent. We’ll probably ride ostriches (if you’re brave enough) before we settle around a Karoo camp fire.|
|Day 7||Stellenbosch||It’s a university party here. Hold onto your hats round 3.|
|Day 8||Cape Town||Perhaps we’ll enjoy a wine tour before we enter Cape Town. If not, we’ll go straight to Table Mountain and take in the awesomeness at the tip of the continent. A long Street Party is on the cards that night. Immense.|
No matter how boring they look, it’s where they go that matters. Any road tripping enthusiast will tell you, it’s all about the music and the crowd. Sit back and chill my friends. It’s going to get silly.
Details about each rest spot will be shared in your itinerary as your road trip approaches.
Starting venue will be shared in our detailed itinerary to be distributed to our road trippers. Accommodation is included the night of the end date. Sunday morning we will part ways.Please note that there are two Mzansi Jives. Please pay careful attention to their start and end dates.
