Just asking for some advice related to our honeymoon in September 2011. We've booked the flights and land in Cape Town on the 6th. The plan is to hire a car but stay in the Cape Town area for 4 nights before heading off on the 10th to go on the garden route to Port Elizabeth.
2 nights in Stellenbosch
2 nights in Hermanus/De Kelders (more likely to be De Kelders)
2 nights in Oudtshoorn
3 nights in Knysna
1 night in Port Elizabeth (early morning flight to Kruger via JHB)
I read in another thread about the drive from De Kelders to Oudtshoorn hence the 2 nights there. I guess we'd aim to arrive mid-late afternoon so we then have a full day to explore.
I'm really asking for advice related to the 3 nights in Knysna. Is this a good place to base ourselves to minimise checking in/out all the time or should we alternatively look at staying for a night in say Wilderness, Plettenberg Bay and Stormsriver. I'm happy to drive but it seems a bit a bit silly going back on ourselves which we might have to do if we're in Knysna!
I've read a lot of other posts and they're incredibly helpful but I just want to make sure I'm doing what's best our trip!
