From Giraffes to Grapes

Check out the wild life at Kariega Game Reserve, then the Garden Route and of course some of our beautiful vineyards, with a taste of Cape Town.

On arrival at Port Elizabeth Airport, you will collect your rental car and drive only 10 minutes to arrive at your first stop. Lindy and her friendly staff at On the Bay B&B will look after you for your first night. After breakfast you will start your journey to the Shamwari Game Reserve. It is only about an hours’ drive, so you have a chilled and relaxed morning. Lunch will be served on arrival and you will have access to your lodge. The itinerary for your stay in the game reserve will be presented to you on arrival and the first game drive will take place that same afternoon. The size of the game reserve is about 10.000 hectare and they have the big five, as well as black rhino, wild dogs, giraffes, zebras, antelopes, birds…the list goes on and on.

After a few days of experiencing the wild life you have about four hours’ drive to Knysna and Head over Hills Luxury Retreat. Endless views and a relaxing environment is to be enjoyed.
Delicious food and extraordinary wines from the private cellar are part of the Head over Hills experience. Your days in Knysna can either be very relaxing or full of activities such as tree gliding, historical walks, beach strolls and of course relaxing massages on you private balcony before the sun sets in the ocean right before your eyes.

Your next stop is La Petite Ferme, situated in the picturesque Franschhoek an hour outside Cape Town. In Cape Town you will stay at The Twelve Apostles Hotel & SPA. The activities are endless and there are some ‘must dos’. But don’t forget to stop for a while and soak in this beautiful city and their friendly people. Most of the activities you can choose from one day to the next but popular ones like Robben Island should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment.
