Starting from Cape Town, we take the highway over Sir Lowry’s Pass and the apple growing district of Elgin toward Caledon. Cape Augullas, the most Southern tip of Africa, may be visited as a detour, otherwise we continue to Mossel Bay, staying over there (A private game Reserve could optionally be booked, and paid for separately). After a visit to the Diaz Museum Complex, board the steam train for George, where you will be met after a two hour trip. Take the old passes road through indigenous forests to Wilderness and the lakes district. Knysna warrants a stay of at least one to two full days, as a cruise on the estuary (optional extra) and shopping is popular. A scenic drive or two, to the Heads and Belvedere are recommended. Plettenberg Bay has many attractions such as hikes (and easy walks), animal sanctuaries, river cruises and the Tsitsikama Forest and nature’s Valley. Plan at least one full day here. Bungy jumping and Canopy tours are optional.
Kannaland is the Oudthoorn area also known as the Little Karoo. We will stay at a guest farm where real country hospitality may be experienced, in a beautiful quiet valley with water cascading outside your cottage. Nearby are the Red Stone hills, where hikes may be organized. From here we may continue our journey to Port Elizabeth (where the Addo Game reserve is well worth a visit), or return via Route 62 through Montagu with its hot springs and fruit growing farms, to Worcester (Succulent Gardens) and Cape Town. Feel free to discuss your preferences: more may be added, some options skipped or routes reversed.
