Tour Plan

1 Day 1: Botlierskop, Oudtshoorn Travel route about 450km / 6 hrs daily.

Leave Cape Town or Stellenbosch early morning ( between 6am to 7am) and trade the silhouette of Table Mountain for the lush green scenery of the start of the Garden Route region after about 450km of driving. The first game reserve visited is 5 hours driving away (subject to weather, stops and traffic), but the route is scenic with a few photo and rest stops along the way. The 3500ha Botlierskop private game reserve is located in a malaria-free area and home to an abundance of wildlife including four of the Big Five, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, well over 26 different species of animals, and more than 200 bird species. Spot some of Africa’s wild animals from the back of an open-top 4x4 vehicle and particularly keep your eyes open for lion, elephant, buffalo, and rhino sightings. Leopards are nocturnal hunters, evasive and not contained by fences so it's unlikely to see them during these game drives.  During the 2-hour game drive you may get a more personal encounter with nature on a short tranquil bush walk (subject to weather & safety). Hop off the safari vehicle for about 5 minutes, following your game ranger to look for smaller wildlife and plants of the coastal Renosterveldt region.  A short drive to end your day in Oudtshoorn, the ostrich capital of the world. Enjoy your evening at leisure under the Klein Karoo's twinkling starry skies. Ask your guide to book a restaurant meal or optional 'braai' barbecue dinner - subject to availability - to taste local delights, such as ostrich 'sosatie' kebab & 'pot brood' bread. Overnight in Oudtshoorn as per your stay package selected: Uthando Backpackers (Dorm or Own Saver package) or 88 Baron van Reede guesthouse (Comfort package) or Buffelsdrift (Luxe package) or Mooiplaas guesthouse (Farmstay package) .

2 Day 2: Oudtshoorn, Route 62

After breakfast, jump straight into the thick of the Klein Karoo bush this morning as you set out on an open-topped 2-hour 4x4 bush drive to seek out more of Africa’s smaller wildlife at Buffelsdrift Private Game Reserve. Your expert guide and ranger will help spot wildlife and share some of nature’s secrets while teaching you about the region’s fauna and flora. This bush drive focuses more on looking closer to see details of nature as the reserve is not home to many big game. Join elephant guides on an optional Elephant Observation in Nature activity (at extra expense) to see three rescued elephants in their natural habitat near the waterhole. Learn about these gentle giants, under the watchful eye of the elephant guides. As you observe these lovable creatures you can take photos and ask ellie-related questions. End-off the day with a 400km drive along Route 62, the longest wine route in the world! Capture the beauty of high mountains, twisting passes, and rugged Karoo plains before arriving in Cape Town or Stellenbosch by evening (between 8pm to 10pm).
