DAY 1  (Dinner)

We leave Cape Town early and travel to the Cape's famed wine-lands region. Stellenbosch, centre of the considerable wine industry, is one of the prettiest of all small towns in South Africa, while the wines, wild flowers and fruits of the valley are amongst the finest in the world. We visit some of the area's most elegant wine estates, touring their cellars, tasting their superb wines and enjoying leisurely strolls around their magnificent grounds and stately homes. We overnight on a wine estate. Enjoy a traditional South African Dinner.

DAY 2  (Breakfast + Lunch)

Leaving the wine-lands, we head through the unique and scenically spectacular Klein Karoo Route 62 to arrive in Calitzdorp. Here  we make a stop for lunch and a tasting of award winning wines. We continue on to Oudtshoorn, the "ostrich capital" of the world, with great flocks of ostriches providing a spectacle to be seen nowhere else in the world.

The ostrich is surely one of the world's most peculiar birds and experience a visit to fascinating Ostrich Show Farm.   Overnight in Oudtshoorn.

DAY 3  (Breakfast + Lunch)

After a leisurely breakfast, we visit the Cango Wildlife Ranch where the cheetah play the star role.  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.  Lunch is enjoyed along with a tasting of Klein Karoo Wines.

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. Overnight in Knysna.

DAY 4  (Breakfast + Dinner)

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 to the undisputed monarch of the forest -  gigantic Outeniqua Yellowood trees.

Enjoy your lunch at a Wine Estate.

An optional tour of  Monkeyland or the Birds of Eden or the Knysna Elephant Park is available before departing back to Knysna. We wind up the day with a  traditional South African Barbeque (Braai) at the Knysna Yacht Club. Optional sunset cruise on the Knysna Lagoon.

DAY 5  (Breakfast)

We 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 drop off our guests in the mid afternoon at George Airport for your onward flight or road transfer.
