DAY 1  (Wine/Juice Tasting -  Lunch - Dinner)

We leave Cape Town at 09h00 and travel to the Cape's famed wine-lands region. Stellenbosch, centre of the  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,  tasting their superb Vegetarian and Vegan Wines  and enjoying leisurely strolls around their magnificent grounds. Guests will have an opportunity to purchase organic wines or juices.

We will make a stop for lunch at the Greenhouse Restaurant situated on the Babylonstoren  Wine Estate. All food is served picnic-style in wooden crates with the preserves, jams and salads packaged in weck jars, while fresh bread is baked from our old wood-fired oven.

We overnight in The Breede River Valey a region famous for its fruit and wine farms.  Enjoy a traditional South African Vegetarian or Vegan Dinner.

 

DAY 2  (Breakfast -  Lunch)

Leaving the wine-lands, we head through the unique and scenically spectacular Klein Karoo Route 62 to arrive in Oudtshoorn, the "ostrich capital" of the world, with great flocks of ostriches providing a spectacle to be seen nowhere else. Enjoy a vegan/vegetarian lunch.

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

 

DAY 3  (Breakfast - Wine/juice tasting - Lunch )

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 or Juices.

Crossing the magnificent Outeniqua Mountains, we descend into the Garden Route. Our first Stop is the Wilderness where we stop for optional Craft Beer and Gin Tasting. (Juice and non-alcoholic beer available) Arriving in Knysna, we begin to explore this charming village with its myriad attractions for visitors.  Overnight in Knysna.

 

DAY 4  (Breakfast -  Lunch)

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.

Lunch will be enjoyed at Bocca Dolce Restaurant. This quaint vegetarian/vegan café is on the farm Quarry Lake, where owners Lello and Lisa Incendiario grow and sell their own organic vegetables, microgreens, and wheatgrass.

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.

An optional tour of  Monkeyland or the Birds of Eden or the Knysna Elephant Park is available before departing back to Knysna. 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.
