Itinerary

DAY 1: Head westwards along the Garden Route, which follows the Indian Ocean coastline and is bordered inland by soaring mountain ranges and indigenous forests. Visit Tsitsikamma Park and Storms River Mouth. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure at the hotel. Dinner and overnight in Knysna. [D]

DAY 2: Enjoy the shops and atmosphere of this quaint town before joining a lagoon cruise to Featherbed Nature Reserve. Enjoy a trailer ride to top of Western Head and walk back through Milkwood trees for lunch. Overnight in Knysna. [BL]

DAY 3: Travel through the Outeniqua Pass to Oudtshoorn, the centre of the world’s Ostrich farming industry. You’ll visit an Ostrich Farm for a guided tour and light lunch, before taking a tour of the spectacular limestone caverns of the Cango Caves, one of the world’s great natural wonders, sculpted by nature through the ages. Late afternoon you will travel to your hotel in time to check in and relax before dinner (for own account). Overnight in Oudtshoorn. [B]

DAY 4: Enjoy an early morning meerkat safari (optional & for own account). Witness these incredible wild, habituated creatures emerging out of their burrows, in time to soak up the sun before they head about their daily activities (weather permitting). After this thrilling experience, head back for a delicious breakfast. After breakfast, the journey continues through the "Little Karoo" to Barrydale, where you will have the opportunity to visit a local farm school before travelling to Montagu, a picturesque and historic spa town. (The school visit is subject to the school being open.) Continue to Franschhoek, a picturesque village surrounded by spectacular vineyards, where French Huguenots settled more than 300 years ago. Here you will disembark the tour and be transferred (with a driver only) to Cape Town, spectacularly set at the foot of Table Mountain. The journey ends on arrival in Cape Town. [B] Note for 2019 season: The tour will continue straight through to Cape Town, and may only travel via Franschhoek to collect other guests booked on the Franschhoek Winelands Option from the SJC14 South Africa Odyssey Tour.
