  • Stop in one of the pretty little towns you pass and enjoy the area and its cuisine.

  • Reach the destination of the day which is Oudtshoorn, the center of ostrich breeding. During your guided tour of an ostrich farm, you will learn a lot about the way of life of these large birds. How about an ostrich steak in the evening?

DAY 05

Mossel Bay - George - Wilderness - Knysna Via George

  • Get to the starting point for the nature reserve is located, and head towards Wilderness. This is exactly what the name stands for: two large national parks are lined up here one after the other and an approx. 30 km long stretch of coast leaves nothing to be desired.

  • Continue the tour to Knysna - the beautiful lagoon of the Garden Route. 

DAY 06

Knysna - Tsitsikamma NP - Port Elizabeth

  • Make a planned stop, of course, at the famous Bloukrans Bridge - does anyone want to bungee jump?

  • Arrive in Port Elizabeth in the evening and nothing stands in the way of a cosy dinner. 

DAY 07

Port Elizabeth - Addo National Park
