This was, of course, a very enjoyable trip, through delightful country, comfortable transport, and with the good Elvis as a cheerful and reliable guide.We much enjoyed Knysna, the ostriich farm at Outschoorn, and all of Franschhoek, where the Huguenot museum was especially memorable (my French wife is a Huguenot, ie a French Protestant). The three hotels/guest houses were all very comfortable and the food excellent. As mentioned earlier we found consuming wine in mid-morning at the wine estate a bit difficult, but the countryside was very beautiful there. Our only real cavil was extending the second day's drive to Hermanus seemed unnecessary as it added to the fatigue of the journey and, while Hermanus appeared to be an attractive whaling port, we had no time to see it. Fortunately, having extra time in Franschheok more than made up for this. Anyway, it was a fun time, especially for my wife on her first visit to South Africa, and the Garden Route was certainly one of the memorable parts of our journey. The fact that I am a somewhat disaabled 85-year-old in no way diminished my pleasure. Kenneth Morgan (Lord M)
We did this tour 02-04 October 2019 Starting in Port Elizabeth and ending in Cape Town with an overnight at Islnd Vibe in Jeffreys Bay, Beach Vibe in Sedgefield, the Garden Route and Route 62. We were picked up at our hotel in Port Elizabeth by the very friendly and professional guide Sidwell and he was our evrything all the way to Cape Town. We had a short senic drive from Port Elizabett to Jeffreys Bay and spend a very nice half a day exploring this little town. Jeffrey's Bay is a surfers paradise with ivory sands, sparkling surf and mild climate. It is home to some of the most perfect waves, but it's also a shell collectors dream. We stayed at IslandVibe lodge right on the beach and had also time to attend the surfing class for begginers in 2 hours before leaving to the next gorgeous town of Sedgefield in the heart of the Garden Route. Along the way we could stopover at the Bloukraans Bridge, but we refused the opportunity to bungy jump off the worlds highest bungy bridge. We choose a visit and walk in Tsitsikamma National Park and photo session i Knysna Head for sundowner on the hill. Beach Vibe Lodge was waiting for us with a fantastic dinner and warm welcome. Sedgefield is a little beautiful artistic slow town with the best coffee shops! The most of driving was left to the last day and we just made a short visit to the Cango Caves intrance to realise that we do not have time to wait for the next tour and just continuered to the ostrich capital of the world, Oudtshoorn via the scenic Outeniqua pass. Here we made a short visit of the farm. After the late lunch we made our way to Cape Town via the famous “Route 62” and it was a long drive. We arrived in Cape Town late in the evening and full of impressions and positiv vibes.
