Day 1: Cape Town – Oudtshoorn

Stop At: Oudtshoorn, 6625, South Africa
Begin with a pickup from your central Cape Town hotel, and then travel in a private vehicle to the Western Cape. Gaze out at the awe-inspiring scenery along Route 62, which meanders through the desert region of Klein Karoo as well as countryside and coastal areas from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. The journey takes between five to six hours, but several stops are factored in so you can stretch your legs, take photos and eat. After venturing through the landscape of rugged plains and towering cliffs, stop in Oudtshoorn, the region’s principle town, so-called ‘ostrich capital,’ and your base for the night.
Duration: 2 hours

Pass By: The Cango Caves, 328 Approximately 30km (19 miles) from town on the R, Oudtshoorn 6625 South Africa
Drop your bags at your accommodation, and then either book an additional 4x4 bush safari sunset game drive at nearby Buffelsdrift Game Lodge or enjoy a visit to Cango Caves for a tour into the depths of the caves and wander along the subterranean pathways, admiring towering stalactite and stalagmite formations. Your evening is then spent at your leisure, perhaps discovering the nightlife and restaurants of Oudtshoorn.

Meals included:
• Breakfast
Accommodation included: Overnight: 4-star Buffelsdrift accommodation or similar in the Oudtshoorn area

Day 2: Oudtshoorn – Sedgefield/ Knysna

Stop At: Kaaiman's River, Wilderness South Africa
Pack your bags and check out of your accommodation in the morning for a leisurely journey along Route 62 to the Wilderness area roughly an hour away. Take to the water on a 1- to 2-hour canoe ride with a local guide, and paddle along a calm river that winds its way through verdant forests.

Standing 709 feet (216 meters) above the Bloukrans River, the bridge is the perfect place to face your fears with an optional bungee jump (own expense). Alternatively, set your adrenaline rushing by watching the jumpers take the leap instead. If jumping of bridges is not for you, rather explore the nearby Tsitsikamma National Park with a short easy hike to the surrounding forests.
