ITINERARY

Day 1

Depart Cape Town at 6am and head up to Oudtshoorn in the Little Karoo semi desert area, which also is the ostrich capital of the World. This drive follows the world-famous Route 62 which is the longest wine route in the world! We’ll visit the Cango Caves for a tour through this magnificent cave system and also visit an ostrich farm for a closer look at this enormous bird. Tonight, we’ll stay in Oudtshoorn and have a delicious ostrich braai for dinner. (Dinner)

Day 2

Leaving Oudtshoorn we'll cross the mountain range to the coast and the gorgeous Garden Route. Our first stop is the scenic 'map of Africa' lookout in the Wilderness and then we're off to Knysna (consistently voted as South Africa's favourite town). Here we will visit the Knysna Heads, Waterfront, markets and explore thoroughly. After Knysna we pass through Plettenberg Bay where we overnight in Storms Riverillage. (Breakfast, Dinner)

Day 3

The magnificent Tsitsikamma National Park awaits us this morning. Thundering waves, thick forest, plentiful birdlife and otters, this National Park has it all! Walk the coastal route to the hanging bridge over Storms River Mouth and experience what makes this the most scenic park in South Africa. From here we'll head onto the Addo elephant National Park and your opportunity to spot huge elephant herds, various antelope species, dung beetles galore and more. For those whom are not interested in Addo, we drive through Jeffrey’s Bay – the surfing Capital of South Africa! Shopping, surfing, sun & beautiful white beaches will keep you occupied until sunset falls upon this beautiful town! Tonight, we overnight in Jeffrey’s Bay. (Breakfast, Dinner)

Day 4

From the Eastern Cape, we head back towards the Garden Route and to the World’s highest Bungy Bridge at Bloukrans (plenty of time to jump for those thrill seekers). This 216-m high bungy is a true marvel to behold, even for those that have a fear of heights! Our journey leads us to the Garden Route Game Lodge where we will also overnight in the luxury accommodation. We will do a late afternoon safari drive where we will have the opportunity to view rhino, lion, buffalo, cheetah and many varieties of antelope species. A sumptuous and varied buffet dinner is served at the lodge and is yet another highlight! (Breakfast, Dinner)

(The basic rate for this tour sleeps in Mossel Bay on this evening. We highly recommended the upgrade to the Garden Route Game Lodge on the last evening as this is the highlight of our tour! It includes 2 x safari Big 5 game drives, 4*accommodation, buffet dinner and breakfast and so much more).

Day 5

We start the day early with a morning safari drive to see some of those animals that we did not see the previous evening. (Clients who slept in Mossel Bay shall have morning at their own leisure to explore the beaches, post office tree and other attractions of Mossel Bay). Departing around lunch time we head towards Hermanus and the best land-based whale watching site in the world (June-December). The Southern Right whales are making a dramatic comeback after nearly becoming extinct a mere 50 years ago. We return to Cape Town late afternoon via the stunning False Bay coastline where with luck we’ll see some dolphins to welcome us home. (Breakfast)
