4 Days Garden Route & Wildlife

1/18

Day 1: Route 62 and Oudtshoorn

We depart Cape Town at about 08:00 in the morning and head toward Du Toit’s Kloof Mountain pass. This route takes us through the beautiful towns of Robertson, Montagu and Ladysmith. En-route we stop for some wine tasting.

We later visit the renowned Cango Caves where we take a spectacular and enlightening guided tour. From the Caves we travel to an Ostrich farm further from Oudtshoorn. You will receive a tour of a practical Ostrich farm where you will learn more about their habits.

Day 2: Garden Route (Knysna, Plettenberg Bay & Tsitsikamma)

This morning gives us ample time to visit Natures valley, Tsitsikamma nature reserve and Plettenberg bay. Possibly the most beautiful part of the Garden Route in South Africa, Nature’s Valley is unique in that it lies nestled in the Tsitsikamma National Park coastal forest, – the only residential area within a South African National Park. We will spend time enjoying the picturesque area covered in large tracts of indigenous forest, deep river gorges, commercial plantation and Fynbos.

We continue on our expedition to Plettenberg bay where we will spend some time enjoying the spectacular bay.

We will wind up the day with a drive to the Knysna East Head viewpoint where we will enjoy the stunning vistas.

Day 3: Knysna Adventure

After breakfast we proceed to Knysna Elephant Park and spend the morning on a tour. Following a short video, guests are transported to the field where you have the opportunity to interact, feed and walk amongst a herd of African elephants. You also have the opportunity to purchase an ‘elephant snack bucket’ to feed the elephants during your visit.

Responsible and educational interactions enable guests to appreciate the awe-inspiring presence of these animals, on elephant terms. There are no fences to spoil the close encounter and the environment encourages elephants to exhibit natural behaviours. 

Later in the afternoon we spend some free time at the Knysna waterfront before embarking on a spectacular Lagoon cruise to the Knysna Heads. Sit back and enjoy the tranquil lagoon as the sun sets on another perfect day in Africa. Relax while you enjoy a glass of wine with a few fresh local oysters. The cruise is slow and leisurely, ultimately relaxing! The sunset cruise is a fully guided cruise.
