Your Itinerary

Day 1 to 5 - Knysna

On arrival into George, collect your rental car and head for Knysna for five nights at your chosen Knysna hotel. Knysna is located 45 minutes away from George and is easily accessible. The area is known for its scenic lagoon, best experienced from a cruise and also the Featherbed Nature Reserve.

Day 6 - Port Elizabeth

Today leave Knysna behind and head to Port Elizabeth for an overnight stop at your chosen Port Elizabeth hotel. En route, you will pass by Tsitsikamma National Park, well worth a stop for its rugged coastline and forested interior.

Day 7 to 9 - Amakhala Game Reserve

Leave the city behind and head off to the Amakhala Game Reserve where you’ll spend the final three nights at the Woodbury Lodge. Ideal for families, you can enjoy morning and evening game drives in open vehicles which will give ample opportunity to see wildlife including the ‘Big Five’.

Day 10 - Farewell

Bid farewell to the amazing lodge and reserve before driving back to Port Elizabeth airport for your onward flight.
