DAY 1  Guests leave Cape Town early (07h30)and travel through some of the wine-producing valleys of the Western Cape. Each valley is graced with great scenic beauty and we enjoy a  wine tasting at one of the elegant estates nestled amongst the vineyards that blanket the valley floors. 

Finding our way into the unique Klein Karoo by way of the superb Cogmanskloof Pass, we travel through a string of picturesque small towns set in this uniquely beautiful scenery. We arrive in the town of Oudtshoorn, principal centre of the Klein Karoo and undisputed "ostrich capital" of the world. Our itinerary includes a visit to a fascinating Ostrich Show Farm where, amidst enormous flocks of these strange birds, we are shown their development from the one kg egg to the 100 kg adult.

We then visit one of the great wonders of Africa - the subterranean wonderland of Cango Caves. For a tour of this vast sequence of caverns, each filled with astonishing formations of glittering dripstones. (Optional sunset game safari) Overnight in Oudtshoorn.

DAY 2  A visit  the Cango Wildlife Ranch will reveal cheetahs, lions, tigers, crocodiles and much more.  You will traverse the spectacular Outeniqua Mountains and descend into the heart of the Garden Route. Stop for an optional lunch at the beach at Buffalo Bay.

Arriving in  the village of Knysna, there is time to discover the craftsmen, who have settled in the area from every corner of South Africa. This region has a tremendous range of arts and crafts in all mediums.  (Optional visit to the Knysna Elephant Park) We wind up the day with a sunset lagoon cruise on the beautiful Knysna Lagoon. Overnight in Knysna. 

DAY 3  Head down to Mossel Bay. Enjoy a boat ride out to Seal Island to view seals, whales and sometimes the Great White Shark. We also explore the Diaz Museum. After an opportunity to do some last minute shopping and enjoy lunch at the Mall we arrive at George Airport in the mid afternoon.
