Planning a trip here for me and my friend in mid-late 20s. Spending 5 nights in Cape Town - cape of good hope, vineyards and all, and then driving towards Port Elizabeth, and flying out from PE to JNB. I've been to Cape Town, pretty much know where we want to go, and want to spend more time there. However. wanted to get your opinions about the rest of the trip from CPT to Port Elizabeth... Gardern Route and all.
Early morning - depart Cape Town and head to Hermanus.
From Hermanus then head straight to Oudtshoorn. ***
If there is time for the remainder of the day, check out ostriches OR cango caves.
Overnight in Oudtshoon - simple hotel (e.g. Protea).
In morning, check out ostriches or cango caves (whatever was not done end of day 6).
Drive south towards George, Kynsna.
Have late lunch at Kynsna/Plettenberg Bay.
Check out Monkeyland if there is time.
Overnight in Plettenberg Bay OR Storms River (Tsitsikamma).*
Visit / check out Tsitsikamma. Do various activities**
Afternoon: Leave area by 2:45PM, drive to Port Elizabeth (2.5hrs) and take evening 6:50PM flight back to Johannesburg.
*1) Opinion needed: Is it better to stay in Plettenberg Bay in a 3-star B&B OR is it better to stay at Storms River (Tsitsikamma) in a B&B for the same price.
**2) What is there to do in Tsitsikamma that's good and have good scenery? Anyone with experience in the "must do's" and also the trails? Note: I do not want to bungee jump off a bridge or do the canopy - done that already.
***3) Is it worth it to go to Cape Agulhas as a detour between Hermanus and Oudtshoorn at all? Or not worth it.
any other recommendations?
