Depart Cape Town at 6am and head up to Oudtshoorn in the Little Karoo semi desert area, which also is the ostrich capital of the World. This drive follows the world-famous Route 62 which is the longest wine route in the world! We’ll visit the Cango Caves for a tour through this magnificent cave system and also visit an ostrich farm for a closer look at this enormous bird. Tonight, we’ll stay in Oudtshoorn and have a delicious ostrich braai for dinner. (Dinner)
Leaving Oudtshoorn we’ll cross the mountain range to the coast and the gorgeous Garden Route. Our first stop is the scenic ‘map of Africa‘ lookout in the Wilderness and then we’re off to Knysna (consistently voted as South Africa’s favourite town). Here we will visit the Knysna Heads, Waterfront, markets and explore thoroughly. After Knysna we pass through Plettenberg Bay! We also stop at the World Highest Bungee Bridge (at 216 meters!) where we overnight in Storms River Village. (Breakfast, Dinner)
Today we head through to Tsitsikamma National Park for a hike to the ever famous Storms River mouth – walk on the recently finished Hanging Bridge, where we can take a dip in the Indian Ocean!!

We’ll also overnight in their award winning chalets. (Breakfast, Dinner)
