DAY 2 (Breakfast)

Today you will explore Plettenberg Bay and the Tsitsikamma region. Originally named Bahia Formosa (Beautiful Bay) by the first Portuguese explorers, Plettenberg Bay more than lives up to its name as you spend time in its environs. We will do some whale and dolphin spotting. In the winter months there will be plenty of whales to view close to the shore.  

The coastal road we follow wends it's way along steep river gorges, over spectacular mountain passes and through dense indigenous forests and ferns. We visit the tiny settlement of Nature's Valley, one of the loveliest havens of tranquillity along the Garden Route. Our exploration of this ancient forest  leads through the tangle of trees, ferns and creepers and the the undisputed monarch of the forest -  gigantic Outeniqua Yellowoods.

Enjoy your lunch on the beach at Plettenberg Bay.

Enjoy a tour of  Monkeyland (or the Birds of Eden) before departing back to Knysna. The Evening is free to explore the Waterfront and dine at one of the many restaurants.

En Route we visit the Botlierskop Private Game Reserve. Home to the Big Five, you will enjoy a safari on a 4X4 open vehicle with an experienced ranger.

We travel over the Robinson Pass to Oudtshoorn, principal centre of the Klein Karoo and undisputed "ostrich capital" of the world.
