DAY 1

We leave Cape Town early and travel to the Cape's famed wine-lands region. Stellenbosch, center 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.

DAY 2 (Breakfast + Lunch) 

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) 

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 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 at the Knysna Waterfront or a Guest House in the village.

DAY 4 (Breakfast + Dinner) 

After breakfast we visit the Knysna Region. Explore the Knysna Heads, Coney Glen Beach, Brenton on Sea  and Buffalo Bay. A forest Hike is also available. The afternoon is free for optional activities such as Whale Watching, a Lagoon Cruise or the popular Knysna Township Trail. 

Guests will be able to enjoy a typical South African barbeque at the Knysna Yacht Club.

DAY 5  (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. 

The coastal road we follow wends its 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 to the undisputed monarch of the forest - gigantic Outeniqua Yellowwood trees.

We continue on to Addo. Accommodation is in the National Park Rest Camp or a nearby Lodge. Optional Sunset Drive in a safari 4x4 vehicle with park rangers is available. Dinner is included tonight.

DAY 6  (Breakfast)  

Enjoy a full day Game Drive in our own vehicle. We spend an unforgettable time in the park teeming with wildlife.
