Tour Itinerary

  1. DAY 1: Cape Town to Prince Albert

    Travel through the picturesque Hex River Valley, surrounded by magnificent mountains. This area is considered to be the biggest producer of table grapes in South Africa. Continue to Matjiesfontein, where a part of the local hotel served as a convalescent hospital for British officers during the Anglo-Boer War. The entire village was declared a National Heritage Site in 1975 and is today a charming, beautifully restored throwback to the late Victorian era. The journey continues to Prince Albert, another delightful village, dating back to 1762. The town is known for its sun-ripened fresh and dried fruit, vineyards, olives and local cheese.

    OVERNIGHT: Swartberg Hotel or similar

  2. DAY 2: Prince Albert to Oudtshoorn

    After breakfast we have the opportunity to sample some of the locally produced olives before travelling through the spectacular Meiringspoort Pass and Waterfall, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with breathtaking rock formations and jaw-dropping beauty. The winding road takes us through the Swartberg Mountains to the quaint Little Karoo village of De Rust. Continue to Oudtshoorn, the ostrich capital of the world and home to the spectacular limestone caverns of the Cango Caves. Enjoy a wine tasting at a local wine estate before setting off on a tour of the Cango Caves, one of the world’s great natural wonders, sculpted by nature through the ages. In the afternoon, visit an Ostrich Farm for a guided tour.

    OVERNIGHT: La Plume Guesthouse or similar

  3. DAY 3: Oudtshoorn to Knysna

    After breakfast, travel over the Outeniqua Pass to George, the sixth oldest town in South Africa, with many historical landmarks like the Slave Tree and King Edward VII Library building; said to be the best example of Edwardian architecture in the town. The tour travels via Wilderness, an attractive holiday resort to Knysna, known as the oyster box of South Africa, nestling on the banks of a beautiful lagoon in the heart of the Garden Route. Enjoy a lagoon cruise to the Featherbed Nature Reserve, where you can take a trailer ride to the top of the Western Head to enjoy panoramic views of the town and lagoon, returning for lunch under the milkwood trees. The afternoon is at leisure to further explore this charming town set around a natural harbour lagoon.

    OVERNIGHT: The Rex Hotel or similar

  4. DAY 4: Knysna to Port Elizabeth

    After breakfast, you’ll be transferred (unescorted, driver only) to Port Elizabeth. You’ll head eastwards along the Tsitsikamma Forest to Port Elizabeth, known as the “friendly city”, with a wonderful climate. The tour ends 1:30 – 2:00pm upon arrival in Port Elizabeth.
