Day 1: Oudtshoorn
Our destination for the day is OOudtshoorn a town in the Klein Karoo that became famous at a time when ostrich feathers ruled the cat walks. It’s also home to the amazing Cango Caves with its cathedral like chambers. On the way to Oudtshoorn, we stop off at Robertson for some wine tasting and before we book in for the night, we visit an ostrich farm where you can learn more about this flightless bird and maybe even get a chance to ride one!

The Knysna Heads form a gateway between the lagoon and the ocean and offers spectacular sights. We also visit the Knysna Waterfront where you can indulge in some shopping before we go and have a peek at Plettenberg Bay, the holiday destination for some of the country’s rich and famous. A visit to the Elephant Park outside Knysna is optional. We go back to Knysna for dinner and overnight stay.
