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 in the Cape Winelands. Enjoy a traditional South African Dinner.

DAY 2  (Breakfast + Lunch Platter)

Leaving the Winelands, 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 platter)

After a leisurely breakfast, we 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. 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 follows 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 Yellowwood trees.
