My boyfriend and I are planning a trip for next month (August) from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. We have 10 days in total, and we've decided that 5 days is the minimum we'd like to spend in Cape Town. This gives us a maximum of 3 full days to travel through the Garden Route before we end at the Addo Elephant part for 2 days.
I've always been keen to see the wineries around Stellenbosch/Franschoek, and I think Hermanus is a must-see as well due to the time of year. But does anyone have any other suggestions?
Not really looking to do anything adventurous this time, such as those canopy tours, abseiling, etc. I'm more desirous of having a pretty, relaxing holiday where I can see a different side of the country and practice my photography skills!
We will likely be taking the Baz Bus (but willing to rent a car at a destination, if necessary) so our options are:
Stellenbosch/Gordon's Bay, Hermanus/Bot River, Swellendam, Mossel Bay, Oudtshoorn, George, Wilderness, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay, Natures Valley, Storms River/Cape St.Francis, Jeffrey's Bay, and Port Elizabeth.
Thanks for your input!
