DAY 1  We leave Cape Town early and travel to the Cape's famed winelands 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 farm.

DAY 2  Leaving the winelands, we head through the unique and scenically spectacular Klein Karoo to arrive in 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 after breakfast we visit a fascinating Ostrich Show Farm. Our guided tour includes watching a thrilling ostrich race. 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.

DAY 3  After a leisurely breakfast, we Visit the Cango Wildlife ranch where the cheetah play the star role. 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 4  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.

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 tranquility 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 Yellowwoods.

Optional activities include: Monkeyland; Birds of Eden or the Knysna Elephant Park.

The energetic can follow a horse trail through the forest, canoe a river trail or play a round of golf. The angler can go exciting deep-sea fishing. The bird-watcher can observe exquisite birdlife in forest, mountain, fynbos and coastal habitats.
