Experience the highlights of the Garden Route with your family in 4 days as you travel from the capital city, George, over the majestic Outeniqua Mountains to Oudtshoorn in the Little Karoo and then back to the coast to visit the indigenous forests of Tsitsikamma.
In Oudtshoorn you will be able to view African wildlife in a private game reserve where you will spend two nights in a luxury tent and be guided safari style on an authentic 2 hour (plus halfway stop) African Bush Safari drive. Here you will encounter elephants, rhinos, cheetahs and many antelope and bird species from the safety of a 4x4 vehicle. You will also visit a wildlife ranch, learn all about the largest flightless bird at an ostrich farm and meet rescued lions from a safe distance.
On the way to Tsitsikamma you will travel along the scenic beach resort towns of Wilderness, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. Experience either a bird or monkey sanctuary en route to your Coastal Reserve accommodation. The reserve has views of the ocean, forests and mountains. You will settle in for a one night stay in one of the family room chalets or a luxury tent.
On your way back to George, visit Face Adrenaline to view the highest bridge bungee in the world (from a safe and 1.5-meter walled viewpoint) and relax or shop for curios at the Knysna Waterfront. You and your family will spend a fun afternoon picking your own strawberries at a local working strawberry farm before heading back to your accommodation.
