The Garden Route in the Southern Cape is one of South Africa’s most beautiful regions. Indulge in your passion for golf and adventure in one tour that will take you from fairways to the fairest views in 4 days of play and discovery.
Day 1: Journey to George
We’ll take the famous Route 62 through the rural towns, mountain ranges and the rugged landscape of the Klein Karoo. At Cango Wildlife we’ll stop for an encounter with cheetahs and more than 40 species of other animals. Then it’s on to the Highgate Ostrich Farm which was established more than 100 years ago. Here you’ll learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the ostrich and get the unique opportunity to even ride one! You’ll handle the enormous eggs, cuddle the chicks and just be amazed by these huge birds’ antics.
Our final destination is Fancourt Hotel & Country Club Estate.
Day 2: Golf
After breakfast you’ll tee off at George Links, one of the most popular courses amongst professional players such as Jack Nicklaus, Ernie Els and Gary Player. Designed by Player’s company, it offers an undulating dune-style course, spectacular views of the mountains and the crisp, clear air of the region.
Day 3: Knysna/Plettenberg Bay
After breakfast we take a most scenic route to Knysna, a little seaside village with a unique atmosphere. Famous for its lagoon and the rocky gateway to the sea, called The Heads, Knysna is home to many artisans and artists. Just outside town is the Knysna Elephant Park. Here you’ll have the most amazing opportunity to touch, feed and photograph the gentle giants of the forest. It is a magical encounter for most people, one which you’ll remember forever. Afterwards we’ll continue to Plettenberg Bay, one of South Africa’s most popular holiday destinations, especially for the ‘glitzy set’. With its golden beaches, its lagoons and quaint small town atmosphere, Plettenberg beguiles all those who go there.
Day 4: Departure
You’ll have the morning at your leisure, before we depart for Cape Town in the afternoon.
