South Africa holidays
Full day Knysna and Plettenberg Bay tour.
The tour begins with a scenic drive to the top of Knysna Heads, dramatic cliffs which overlook the Indian Ocean on one side and the town and lagoon of Knysna towards the distant Outeniqua Mountains on the other side. You will then take a shared 25-minute ferry ride across Knysna's magnificent estuary to a secluded nature reserve, home to a variety of wildlife, Knysna loeries, the blue crane, and one of Africa's smallest antelope, the blue duiker. On arrival, a 4x4 trailer will take you to the summit of the Western Headland for a spectacular panorama view of the Knysna Basin and the sea. After admiring the view, take a gentle walk through a Milkwood forest, into caves and along the coastline back to a restaurant, where you will be served lunch in the Food Forest, an outside eating area set amongst the Milkwood trees.
Continue to the Elephant Sanctuary, which provides a safe haven for six elephants and a platform for education and interaction. Join an hour-long trunk in hand experience, which involves walking with the elephants through the forest to learn about these amazing animals from their habits to their anatomy. This experience will be shared with others.
Return to your hotel late this afternoon.
