Cape & Garden Route

Day 1

You arrive at the Cape Town airport and meet with our guide before being transferred to your hotel. After giving you some time to check-in and relax, our guide is back for a visit of Cape Town (city tour) and Table Mountain. In the evening, we propose a diner near your hotel so that you have enough time to rest and get ready for the next day.

Day 2

The guide will be at your hotel at 8 am, just after breakfast for the guided tour of the Cape peninsula. Your tour will comprise Houtbay and its seals islands, the Cape Nature reserve and Cape of Good Hope and the Kirstenbosch botanical garden. After such a lengthy day, we propose a diner at the waterfront in one of the numerous award-winning restaurants.

Day 3

The day starts with a tour of the wine route with a degustation in one of the cellars, followed by a boat cruise to Robben Island, the prison where former South African president Nelson Mandela spent 27 years of his life. For your last night in Cape Town, why not try the Gold restaurant where you will wine and dine while being entertained by the vibrant staff?

Day 4

You leave Cape for Oudtshoorn, small town known for its rich farms and resting along the Route 62. You will stay at one of the farms and the bolder travellers can try and ride an ostrich.

Day 5

Before leaving Oudtshoorn, we recommend a 2hours tour of the Cango Caves, famous for their prehistorical rock formations. After the visit, you will depart for Knysna, built on the northern shore of a large warm-water estuary, known as the Knysna Lagoon. Recently, the town has also become a preferred destination among golfers, as it boasts several world class golf courses. After an orientation tour, you will check-in at your hotel and leave for the waterfront where you will go on the John Benn’s cruise. The John Benn is a double-decker floating restaurant offering daily Lagoon cruises to the Knysna Heads. A memorable activity on Knysna Lagoon.

Day 6

Unless you want to keep discovering Knysna during the day, we suggest you push to Plettenberg bay, a neighbouring town famous for its white sandy beaches. Nature lovers can spend the day in the Tsitsikamma National Park where they can do one of the numerous trails or cross the Storms river on the 77m long Tsitsikamma suspension bridge. The Knysna Elephant park is another popular attraction in the region.

Day 7

Depending on the departure time of your flight, you can spend more time in Knysna or leave from George or Port-Elizabeth airports
