Description

Day 1: (Travel about 400 km) Start with a morning pickup to journey along the Route 62; passing vineyards and orchards along the longest wine route in the world before arriving at Viljoensdrift winery for a peaceful river cruise at noon. Meander along the Breede River, flanked by indigenous trees teeming with birdlife, while wine tasting onboard an elegant flat-bottomed riverboat. And a picnic lunch (optional with extra cost) is the perfect way to spend a laid-back afternoon. Continue to reach Buffelsdrift, a private game lodge on the outskirts of Oudtshoorn, for a serene 'Shy Five' bush drive after sunset. Learn about the natural landscapes and wildlife of the Klein Karoo - look out for buffalo, giraffe, kudu, porcupine... Return to the lodge for dinner on the deck overlooking the waterhole dam before you turn in for a peaceful night in your luxury glamping canvas tent nearby. Day 2: (Travel about 300 km) Awake to sounds of wildlife as the bush come to life around you. After breakfast, you'll leave behind the vast plains inland to reach the lush forest-coastal paradise of the Wilderness region. Visit the Wilderness National Park for an immersive walk at this bird-watchers' dream, looking out for colourful Kingfishers or the illusive Knsyna loerie. In the afternoon drive towards the Knysna lagoon for a 2 hour luxury catamaran cruise (subject to weather conditions). Take in sunset views while enjoying a complimentary glass of bubbly. Search the horizon for pods of dolphins and other ocean life and as dark falls you'll return to land for some free time at the Knysna Waterfront and your overnight stay at Knysna Quays hotel. Day 3: (Travel about 200 km) After breakfast you'll set course to Botlierskop Game Reserve for an exhilarating 4x4 safari; traversing vast hills and valleys in search of some members of the African Big 5 with a knowledgeable game ranger at your side. This 4200 hectare reserve with sprawling views of the Outeniqua mountains and the Indian Ocean is home to four of the Big Five and host unrivalled wild animal viewing opportunities of the region. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of Africa’s apex predators, the lions! Head on to Agulhas Ocean House for the night. Day 4:(Travel about 400 km) Wake to spectacular ocean views, and today the first stop on the return to Cape Town is at the very Tip of Africa; Cape Agulhas – the southernmost point of the continent and the spot where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans collide. Continue along the coast to reach Hermanus, known around the world for its unparalleled land-based whale watching. Set off on a leisurely stone-cliff path walkways to watch whales leap forth right before your eyes during whale season (June to November). Before the journey draws to a close, you'll visit the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens for chance to see a secluded waterfall within this magical fynbos parklands and then wind along the spectacular Clarence Drive to return by early evening in Cape Town.
