THE FULL CANNABIS TOUR (GARDEN ROUTE)

GROUP TOUR

CAPE TOWN > OUDTSHOORN > SEDGEFIELD > KNYSNA > PLETTENBERG BAY > MOSSEL BAY > CAPE TOWN

If you're a traveler who appreciates the heart that goes into growing quality green, who likes to sample new strains from around the world, and who enjoys savouring a quiet moment with new friends at the end of a beautiful day... this is the tour for you.

 

We will introduce you to the cannabis culture of the Garden Route, in the Western Cape of South Africa. You'll visit local social clubs that support small home growers, you'll meet growers and experts who share their knowledge with you, and we'll also introduce you to the spiritual side of green when we visit a Rastafarian community and learn about the role that marijuana plays in their culture.

 

And in-between the green adventures, you will also experience some of the highlights of the Garden Route and Little Karoo, with a tour through the famous Cango Caves, breakfast at the local farmers market, a hike in a breathtakingly beautiful nature reserve and other surprises along the way...

 

In South Africa the personal use of marijuana has recently been decriminalised, but it's still very much controversial and slightly underground. For this reason, your guide and co-pilot on this tour will be Nick VT and Kim, Garden Route locals and the owners of Hello Adventure. We are here to make sure you can relax and enjoy yourself while staying on the right side of the law.

 

Notes:

  • A minimum of 4 guests is required for this tour to run.
  • This is a small, personal group tour. Group size is limited to 10 guests.
  • This is a "weed appreciation" tour and everyone is welcome, whether you partake or not.
  • The theme and focus of this tour is cannabis, which is a controversial topic for many countries around the world. For this reason, you must be over the age of 21 to take part in this tour.
