After lunch (own expense), continue to Swellendam - the third oldest settlement in South Africa. Dinner is enjoyed at the hotel restaurant. We will stay overnight at Klippe Rivier Country House in a standard room (or similar).

    Day 2 - After Breakfast, depart Swellendam and travel to the Lagoon-side town of Knysna - gem of the Garden Route. Enjoy some time and leisure at the Knysna Waterfront Complex before embarking on an excursion to the Featherbed Nature Reserve which is located on the western Knysna head. The trip includes a ferry across the lagoon to the base of the western head, a drive to the top of the reserve and an optional 2.2 kilometre downhill nature trail walk. The tour ends with a delicious lunch served under the shade of milkwood trees. Upon returning to the mainland, continue your journey to Plettenberg Bay for the following 2 nights. Dinner is enjoyed at the lodge. We will stay overnight at Hog Hollow Country Lodge in a standard room (or similar).

    Day 3 - After breakfast get up close and personal with nature at the Knysna Elephant Park. The visit presents you with the opportunity to touch, feed, and photograph these gentle giants. After lunch (own expense), travel to Tsitsikama National Park. Enjoy a walk along the suspension bridge across the Storms River mouth gorge which offers visitors incredible views and photo opportunities. Spend time in Plettenberg Bay before returning to the lodge for dinner and an overnight stay. We will stay overnight at Hog Hollow Country Lodge in a standard room (or similar).

    Day 4 - Morning departure from Plettenberg Bay, then the tour winds its way through George via the Outeniqua Pass to Oudtshoorn. Visit an Ostrich Farm for a guided tour and lunch. Continue to the Cango Caves - one of the natural wonders of the world and which has become a major draw-card for the Karoo area. Following this visit of discovery, check into your overnight accommodation. Dinner will be served at the hotel. We will stay overnight at Rosenhof Country House in a standard room (or similar).
