What to Expect
Day 1 - Wedneday: Cape Town - Oudtshoorn
Depart Cape Town and travel through the ‘Little Karoo’ and Montagu, a picturesque and historic spa town. En route, stop off in the town of Barrydale, where you will have the opportunity to visit a local farm school, interact with the children and teachers, spending time with them in the classroom learning more about the local farming community (the school visit is subject to school being open), before continuing to Oudtshoorn, the “ostrich feather capital” and centre of the world’s Ostrich farming industry. Enjoy a Guided Tour of an Ostrich Farm. Overnight in Oudtshoorn. [D]

Day 2 - Thursday: Oudtshoorn - Knysna
After breakfast take a tour of the spectacular limestone caverns of the Cango Caves, one of the world’s great natural wonders, sculpted by nature through the ages. Return to Oudtshoorn for a tour and light lunch at an Ostrich Farm. Our journey continues over the scenic Outeniqua Pass to George, the administrative hub of the Garden Route area and then onto Knysna, known as the oyster box of South Africa, nestling on the banks of a beautiful lagoon in the heart of the Garden Route. Overnight in Knysna. [BL]

Day 3 - Friday - Knysna
After a leisurely breakfast you’ll enjoy a lagoon cruise to the Featherbed Nature Reserve, where you can take a trailer ride to the top of the Western Head to enjoy panoramic views of the town and lagoon, returning for lunch under the milkwood trees. The afternoon is at leisure to further explore this charming town set around a natural harbour lagoon. Overnight in Knysna. [BL]

Day 4 - Saturday: Knysna - Albertinia
After a leisurely breakfast, travel via George and Mossel Bay to Albertinia, a town set against the backdrop of the majestic Langeberg Mountain Range. Enjoy an afternoon open vehicle game drive, at a malaria free private game reserve, that is home to an abundance of animal and birdlife, including the Big Five. Overnight in the region of Albertinia. [BD]

Day 5 - Sunday: Albertinia - Hermanus
Your safari adventure continues with an early morning open vehicle game drive. Your expert guide will endeavour to spoil you with sightings of the “Big Five”, general game and prolific bird life. Leaving the bush behind, your journey will take you to the picturesque Cape Dutch town of Swellendam. This charming town was founded in 1745 and is famous for its youngberries, eclectic architecture and National Parks, as well as outdoor activities. Our journey further continues to the seaside resort of Hermanus, known as the heart of the whale route, offering the best land based whale watching (Aug-Nov) in the world. Dinner and overnight in Hermanus. [BD]

Day 6 - Monday: Hermanus - Cape Town
After a leisurely breakfast depart Hermanus and continue to Somerset West, travelling via the scenic coastal road to Gordon's Bay. This is a spectacular route with steep cliffs and lovely coves. Locals label it as the Helderberg area’s own "Chapman's Peak" drive and the route offers amazing views over False Bay. Travel to the Stellenbosch area, set within the scenic Cape Winelands. This “Heart of Cape Heritage and hospitality” is a gracious blend of old Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian architecture. A wine tasting will be enjoyed, before travelling to Cape Town, where the tour ends on arrival. [B] Guests may disembark, on request, at Cape Town International Airport.
