Day 1: Cape Town – Agulhas

 

We depart from Cape Town between 06h30 – 07h30. Today’s route takes us along the Coastal Whale route, through one of the most scenic parts of our country. We stop en-route in the town of Hermanus to have lunch (own expense) and in the hope of spotting the Southern Right whales (seasonal) that visit this coast to breed.

 

After lunch we head to the exact point where the African continent sinks into the ocean and keep a sharp eye out for the Cape Grysbok in the fynbos or Cape fur seals and Dolphins playing in the surf. We reach our overnight destination in time to appreciate one of the most spectacular sunsets in the world from the patios of our fisherman’s cottages, in sight of the ocean.

 

Dinner is a two course meal, prepared by your guide and served al fresco outside one of the cottages. Wine is served with dinner but guests are welcome to bring along additional / alternative drinks which should be purchased before entering the park.

 (Dinner included)

 

Day 2: Agulhas – Tsitsikamma

 

Today our route takes us through the scenic fruit and wheat producing regions of the Overberg and Langeberg. These rolling grasslands are known to be home to the endangered Blue Crane and we may be fortunate enough to spot some of these beautiful birds. We travel along the world renowned Garden Route, past the picturesque coastal towns nestled in the lake and lagoon region at the foot of the Outeniqua mountains and reach Tsitsikamma, the jewel of the Southern Cape in time for lunch (own expense).

 

After lunch and checking into our accommodation, there is time to explore the beauty of the rare indigenous forest and impressive coastline on a hike to a waterfall. If we are lucky we might spot the Cape clawless otter hunting in the streams and surf.

 

Dinner is a two course meal, prepared by your guide and served al fresco outside one of the cabins. Wine is served with dinner but guests are welcome to bring along additional / alternative drinks which can be purchased at the shop.

(Breakfast & Dinner included)

 

Day 3: Tsitsikamma – Addo

 

We rise early for a morning hike in search of the beautiful but elusive Knysna Turaco and depart after breakfast to the world renowned Addo Elephant Park. The drive takes us from forest and plantation through the semi arid region of the Southern Cape with several opportunities to see some of the rare Raptor species that make this area their home.

 

We arrive at Addo Elephant Park and start exploring the park in our closed tour vehicle. After a short drive, we have lunch (own expense) at the main rest camp and check into our accommodation. This afternoon you head out on an afternoon game drive, conducted by a SANParks ranger, in an open game drive vehicle. This drive generally takes about 3 hours and tends to extend into the early evening, affording guests the possibility of spotting some nocturnal animals.

 

Dinner is a two course meal, prepared by your guide and served al fresco outside one of the chalets. Wine is served with dinner but guests are welcome to bring along additional / alternative drinks which can be purchased at the shop.

 (Breakfast & Dinner included)

 

Day 4: Addo

 

Today we will spend the morning & afternoon exploring the park in our tour vehicle, in search of some great photo opportunities & experiencing wildlife at its best! Addo Elephant Park offers a unique eco system and is home to a huge variety of wildlife, including the Big 5 as well as plains game, Black Backed Jackal, Tortoises and Dung Beetles (who have right of way!).

 

We’ll return to camp for breakfast after the morning drive and have time for a siesta & lunch (own expense) before heading off on our afternoon drive.

 

Dinner is a two course meal, prepared by your guide and served al fresco outside one of the chalets. Wine is served with dinner but guests are welcome to bring along additional / alternative drinks which can be purchased at the shop.

 (Breakfast & Dinner included)

 

 

Day 5: Addo – Oudtshoorn

 

After an early wake-up call, we pack up and enjoy a last game drive on our way out of the park. We will stop for breakfast in one of the small villages somewhere along the way.

 

Today’s route takes us away from the coast along Route 62. The scenery along this route is vastly different from what we have experienced during the first couple of days of our safari as lush green coastal forests makes way for a much more austere environment with stark landscapes. Nestled between the Outeniqua & the Swartberg Mountain ranges, this area is world renowned for its agriculture, in particular ostrich farming. We stop for lunch en-route in one of the quaint towns (own expense)

 

We spend the night in the Ostrich capital of the world, Oudtshoorn. Dinner is a two course meal, prepared by your guide and served al fresco at one of the chalets. Wine is served with dinner but guests are welcome to bring along additional / alternative drinks which can be purchased in town.

 (Breakfast & Dinner included)

 

Day 6: Oudtshoorn – Cape Town

 

After a leisurely breakfast, we explore the area west of Oudtshoorn. This fruit & dairy producing area sports some interesting towns with brandy distilleries & cheese factories. We stop for lunch en-route (own expense).

 

We finally pass through the fruit producing areas of Elgin & Grabouw to cross the Hottentots Holland Mountains, with spectacular views of the surrounding landscape, as well as False Bay and the Cape Peninsula in the distance with Table Mountain watching over Cape Town. We plan to be back in Cape Town between 16h00 & 17h00, with drop-off points at both Cape Town International airport and the V & A Waterfront.
