We start with a short tour to see the key historical and architectural sites of the "Mother City". Weather permitting, we will then ascend Table Mountain by cable car to enjoy one of the world’s most famous views (alternatively we will drive to the wonderful viewpoint on Signal Hill).
 
We continue to the fishing village of Hout Bay, where we take a boat ride to see the Cape Fur seals at Seal Island (you will be lifted onto the boat in your wheelchair - this will not be possible for very heavy guests, nor for heavy or power chairs).

Day 4
Enjoy a full day tour of the renowned Stellenbosch Winelands today, travelling through the scenic Franschhoek Valley where a handful of French Huguenot refugees started South Africa’s now famous wine industry. Visit the historic university town of Stellenbosch and several different wine estates of your choice – sampling as you go!
 
Enjoy lunch at a good restaurant or wine estate (own account), and visit the Cheetah Outreach Project in Somerset West on the way home.
Day 5
This morning your guide will show you more of the dramatic and contrasting beauty of South Africa on your scenic 5-hour drive from Cape Town along spectacular Route 62 to Oudtshoorn in the arid Little Karoo.
 
We travel through the beautiful Cape Winelands and Breede River Valley, where we enjoy wine tasting at a wine estate renowned for its port, before checking into our guest house.
Day 6
This morning we visit Cango Wildlife Ranch to see cheetah and crocodiles, and an Ostrich Farm to learn more about these huge flightless birds and their magnificent plumage.
 
In the afternoon we travel 2-hours through the spectacular Outeniqua Pass to Knysna on the beautiful Garden Route. Check in to your hotel and relax in this area of outstanding natural beauty.
Day 7
This morning we explore Knysna scenically situated on a vast lagoon. This lively town is famous for its oysters, which are grown in the lagoon. It also offers good shopping opportunities and many interesting craft centres in the town. Spend time shopping or people watching at one of the sidewalk cafes, and then enjoy a cruise on the Knysna Lagoon.
 
In the afternoon a special treat awaits – a visit to a Knysna Elephant Park where you will have the opportunity to feed one of these gentle giants!
Day 8
Today we drive through Plettenberg Bay, South Africa’s playground for the rich and famous. Schools of dolphins are sometimes seen here in the warm Indian Ocean and whales may be seen in season (July to November).
 
Continuing northwards, we travel 4-hours past the Tsitsikamma Forest and across the dramatic Storms River Gorge to the malaria-free game Addo Elephant Park in the beautiful Eastern Cape.
 
After checking in to your self-catering rest camp, enjoy an afternoon game drive with your guide, where game viewing opportunities should present themselves almost immediately. In addition to the elephants, we hope to see several species of antelope, zebra, wildebeest and maybe even giraffe - as well as several of the Big Five. Your guide has an allowance to cover your breakfast, lunch & dinner at the camp restaurant, each day that you are in the park.
Day 9
This morning enjoy a game viewing drive in your host's vehicle in Addo Elephant Park, where you can view these magnificent animals which once roamed free in this area and were saved from extinction by this national park, which has also preserved the rare Cape buffalo and the flying dung beetle. Addo is home to all the Big Five - Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard and Rhino - as well as many other interesting species.
 
The remainder of the morning is free to relax at your rest camp, before setting out again in the late afternoon on another game drive. You can hope to see ostrich, giraffe, hippo, kudu, crocodiles, antelope, waterbuck, warthogs, baboons and many other animals. With hundreds of different bird species in the region, outstanding bird watching is also guaranteed!

We stop at the Boardwalk Casino at the seaside resort of Port Elizabeth, where there is time to do some shopping and enjoy the beachfront.
 
We continue through the scenic Old Passes Road to Mossel Bay. Here we visit the Dias Museum, which has a life-sized replica of the ship that the Portuguese explorer, Bartholemew Dias, sailed in when he became the first European to set foot on South African soil and erect a cross. At the centre of the complex is the famous Post Office Tree, an ancient Milkwood where early sailors left mail for homebound ships.

We visit the local museum, which houses a replica of his boat and continue to the small town of Albertina to visit an Aloe Factory to learn more about the healing properties of this fascinating succulent plant.
