You’ll be up early today to make our way to our next destination – Hermanus. Sit back and enjoy the stunning views as we follow the scenic coastal road.

We’ll pause at Betties Bay to view a colony of endangered and adorable African penguins.

After breakfast, we’ll hit the road and travel to Oudtshoorn in the Little Karoo, known as the Ostrich Capital of the World. We’ll be heading there via the spectacular Route 62, which is South Africa’s longest wine route – so it’s only right that we’ll stop for a delicious lunch and wine tasting at a local winery.

After that, we’ll plunge into the subterranean beauty of the Cango Caves on a guided tour led by a local expert.

Day 6: Oudtshoorn - Sedgefield, South Africa

Today is definitely one of our favourite days.

After a tasty breakfast, we’ll head over the spectacular Outeniqua Mountain pass where we will explore Wilderness National Park in one of the best possible ways – by canoe!

Soak in the serenity and natural beauty of the indigenous forests as we paddle up the Touw River, famous for its intriguing birdlife. After about 40 minutes, we’ll leave the canoes for a 2km hike along a boardwalk that ends in a lovely waterfall and rock pools.

After that, we’ll visit the famous town of Knysna via the lavish Lake District of the Garden Route. This charming little town has a delightful waterfront and restaurants, so you’ll be able to relax and do some shopping.

We’ll next visit the Knysna Heads viewpoint for some magnificent views over Knysna River estuary and the Indian Ocean.

The afternoon will be yours to do as you please – why not explore Sedgefield with its beautiful views and beaches?
