Itinerary

  1. DAY 1: Port Elizabeth to Knysna

    We depart from Port Elizabeth in the morning
    and head towards the picturesque region of the
    Tsitsikamma Forest and Coastal National Park.
    Our first stop is for refreshments at the scenic
    Storms River Bridge. After stretching our legs,
    we continue on a short distance to the Big Tree
    an awe inspiring 800-year-old wonder,
    Yellow Wood Tree in the serenity of the
    Tsitsikamma National Park. From there to the
    awesome Storms River Mouth for a walk to the
    longest suspension bridge in the Southern Hemisphere. There are a variety of activities to do in this area and these will be given to you on departure and the guide will discuss with you along the way.

    Our next destination is Knysna, but before we reach this charming Garden Route town, we stop to take in a stunning coastal view at an elevated lookout at Plettenberg Bay.
    A 20-minute drive on from Plettenberg Bay, we see Knysna nestled on the banks of a beautiful lagoon. We will spend the night here, taking time to absorb the great scenery and charming holiday atmosphere. While in Knysna, we have the option of taking a sunset cruise across the lagoon to the famous Knysna heads (Optional Extra for own account).

    Today our first destination is the coastal town of Mossel Bay, but before getting there we take time enjoying all the Garden Route has to offer, as we travel through Sedgefield and the unique eco-system of the 5 lakes. When we reach Mossel Bay, we take a short tour around the historic town. Next on

    the agenda is a trip inland through the Robinson Pass.
    This will lead to our next destination, the Karoo town of Oudtshoorn, the
    “Ostrich Capital of the World”. Here we visit an ostrich farm and maybe even ride an ostrich! We will spend the night in Oudtshoorn

    we continue on our way to Cape Town via the R62
    passing through the quaint towns and wine routes of
    Barrydale, Montagu and Robertson, over the
    beautiful Du Toit's Kloof Pass and along the
    Paarl Valley and into the Mother City of Cape Town.
