DAY 1  We leave Cape Town early and travel through the superbly scenic Cape Winelands. Each valley is graced with great scenic beauty and we enjoy a wine tasting at one of the beautiful estates.

Passing through the uniquely beautiful Klein Karoo, we arrive in Oudtshoorn, undisputed "ostrich capital" of the world. Great flocks of these strange and wonderful birds are to be seen everywhere.

We then proceed to one of Africa's great wonders - the subterranean wonderland of the Cango Caves. The largely unexplored sequence of vast caverns are filled with amazing formations of glittering dripstone. We overnight in Oudtshoorn at Buffelsdrift Game Lodge. Enjoy an Optional late afternoon Game Drive in an open 4X4 safari vehicle. Your Dinner is included tonight.

DAY 2  Early morning Optional Game Drive in a $x$ safari Vehicle. After a leisurely breakfast, we Visit the Cango Wildlife ranch where the cheetah play the star role. The ostrich is surely one of the world's most peculiar birds. We also visit a fascinating Ostrich Show Farm. Your remarkable guided tour includes watching a thrilling ostrich race.

Crossing the magnificent Outeniqua Mountains, we descend into the Garden Route. Arriving in Knysna, we begin to explore this charming village with its myriad attractions for visitors. We wind up the day with a sunset cruise on the Knysna Lagoon. Overnight in Knysna.

DAY 3  Originally named Bahia Formosa (Beautiful Bay) by the first Portuguese explorers, Plettenberg Bay more than lives up to its name as you spend the day in its environs, experiencing your choice of the 101 delights available in the area.

Optional Activities include a horse trail through the forest, canoe a river trail or play a round of golf. The angler can go exciting deep-sea fishing, there is mountain biking in the forest and a host of outdoor adventure activities. he bird-watcher can observe exquisite birdlife in forest, mountain, fynbos and coastal habitats.

There is the Robberg Nature Reserve to explore with its incredible richness of flora, birds and inter-tidal life. 

We embark on a boat cruise up the beautiful Keurbooms river.  There are fascinating stone-age caves and middens to explore. For the less energetic there are long golden beaches offering sun-lovers the delight of safe swimming or strolls along the beach-combing for the delicate Pansy Shell. (Sand Dollar)


DAY 4  After breakfast we begin to explore the legendary Tsitsikamma Forest, following the coastal road winding its way along river gorges, over breathtaking mountain passes and through dense indigenous forests. We visit Nature's Valley, a tiny coastal settlement more than half-buried beneath towering forest.

Our exploration of this ancient forest includes a walk, which winds its way through the tangle of trees, ferns and creepers to a massive Outeniqua Yellowwood, over 800 years old. In the afternoon we leave the Garden Route behind us and head east.

The mountains disappear behind us and the Cape Fynbos is replaced by the stunted bush and thorn trees of the great savannah bush, which typifies Africa. We enter the fabulous Addo Elephant Park for an experience never to be forgotten. We enjoy an enthralling Optional night Game Drive in an open 4X4 safari vehicle. Dinner and overnight in the Park.


DAY 5  We spend an unforgettable day in the park! 8,600 ha of prime game land teeming with wildlife awaits you and offers viewing of some of Africa's most impressive animals, including elephant, buffalo, black rhino, kudu, a great variety of other antelope species, as well as birds, plants, insects and reptiles.
