With three full days and a car at your disposal, you can easily fit in all the highlights. Your base is the Steenberg Hotel, a 30-minute drive from the city on an exclusive golf estate in the Constantia Winelands. Table Mountain, Boulders Beach penguin colony and Cape Point all lie within easy reach and depending on the time of year, you can go whale-watching, shark-cage diving and hiking too. There are 2 pools, a spa and opportunities to play golf on one of Cape Town’s top courses. Take advantage of the in-house restaurant or sample a local eatery.

Days 5 – 7: A Room with a View – Knysna

Self-drive your way along the Garden Route to the town of Knysna. Check in at Kanonkop House overlooking the lagoon. Enjoy 3 nights on a bed & breakfast basis.

It’s a fairly long drive today but the scenery doesn’t disappoint. Once you reach the coast, long sandy beaches flanked by forested mountains announce the appearance of the much-loved Garden Route. Make your way to the town of Knysna and your accommodation – Kanonkop House, a clean-lined, hill-top guesthouse with the best views in town. Activities in the area range from golf, water-skiing and mountain biking to canoe and hiking trails, elephant encounters and marine tours. There are plenty of local restaurants to choose from and your hosts will help you plan it all.

A short drive from Knysna takes you to Plettenberg Bay, a sporting playground and home to some of the best beaches in South Africa. You’ll be based at Kurland, a family owned and managed country house set on a private polo estate. Facilities include a spa, restaurant, pool and gym; the leafy rural surroundings make an idyllic backdrop for golf, tennis, quad biking and horse riding. Home to a gorgeous honeymoon suite and offering plenty of privacy, Kurland is also very family-friendly and offers child-minders, a children’s pool and games room.
