Then you will return to Cape Town late in the afternoon for your overnight stay at the hotel.
After breakfast on the fourth day you will check out and leave Cape Town, travelling along Route 62 to Barrydale for lunch (not included in cost). From here you’ll continue to the sleepy town of Oudtshoorn – known as the ‘feather capital of the world’. You’ll get the chance to visit a working ostrich farm and enjoy a guided tour though the grounds. Check in to your accommodation in the late afternoon before enjoying dinner. You’re staying overnight De Opstal Country Lodge or Surval Boutique Olive Estate.
Today you will spend a morning enjoying a tour of the Cango Caves – this is one of South Africa’s top attractions and also one of the most impressive sights in the world. You’ll then travel onwards to the lagoon-side town of Knysna, a pretty town with a distinctly European flavour. Embark on a tranquil cruise into the Knysna Heads. Then when you return to the mainland, your journey continues to Plettenberg Bay for the following two nights. You’ll be staying at Hog Hollow Country Lodge or Hunters Country House.
After breakfast, get up-close-and-personal with nature at the awe-inspiring Elephant Sanctuary. The visit allows you with the chance to touch, feed and photograph these gentle giants.
