The moment you’re whisked away from the smiley city of Port Elizabeth, you’ll see and feel the landscape change from the frontier-esque dustiness of the Eastern Cape to the fertile lushness of the Garden Route.   Identified by its verdant vegetation and abundance of lakes and coastal views, the Garden Route is one of South Africa’s most popular coastal drives; stretching its foresty fronds all the way from Storms River to Heidelberg and delighting tourists and eco-warriors from across the globe.

Day 1: (Sunday) Port Elizabeth / Knysna (D) 

Set off from the airport between 12h00 and 13h00 (earlier if everyone has already arrived), travelling through the indigenous Tsitsikamma Forest towards the romantic seaside resort of Knysna, in the heart of the famous Garden Route, with scenic stops along the way. Dinner and overnight in Knysna. 
Accommodation: Knysna Hollow Hotel or similar 

Day 2: (Monday) Knysna (BB,L) 

Cruise on the vast Knysna Lagoon and visit the Featherbed Nature Reserve. Enjoy an amazing view of the imposing sandstone ‘Heads’ which guard the sea entrance to Knysna’s huge tidal lagoon, and the forests, marshes and pristine beaches beyond. After lunch the remainder of the day is at leisure to enjoy this lovely and special town. 
Accommodation: Knysna Hollow Hotel or similar 

Day 3: (Tuesday) Cango Caves & Oudtshoorn (BB,HL) 

The morning, enjoy the wonderful views of the spectacular Outeniqua Pass en route to Oudtshoorn, the ‘feather capital of the world’, so named, because it’s the centre of South Africa’s ostrich industry. After lunch, we learn more about these hardy, enigmatic creatures during a tour of an ostrich farm. We then head underground for a fascinating tour of the Cango Caves, one of South Africa’s most incredible natural wonders. Stay overnight in Oudtshoorn. 
Accommodation: Queens Hotel or similar 

Day 4: (Wednesday) Cape Town (BB) 

Enjoy the ever changing passing canvas as we travel to Cape Town. During the whale season we will travel via the seaside village of Hermanus in the hopes of catching a glimpse of southern right whales, which frolic offshore (July to November only). Out of season we will return to Cape Town along ‘Route 62’.
