After making the mistake of flying into Capetown and the unsuccessful mad dash trip to the Lodge to get in before dark we pulled into the lodge tired, cold and hungry. Our hosts met us and led us to our cottage Clivia. The mattresses were lovely and comfortable so we settled in for the night quickly. The next morning when we finally saw the view, we knew we made the right choice to keep going and not stop somewhere closer along the route. Not only is the place gorgeous but the service is wonderful. The breakfast and dinner were delicious and we even got breakfast packed for our last morning for the long ride back. Brian is an amazing chef and that's an understatement. My suggestion is to fly into George airport or Port Elizabeth and drive to the lodge and see the sights close by in Plett and Knysna. Or fly into Cape Town, stay a night or two in Hemanus or one of the other towns along the way and take a leisurely drive down to Fynbos Ridge, then fly out of George or Port Elizabeth. The critical part is to make space for Fynbos Ridge.
