Alex and Jose Antonio, Portugal
We have managed to visit all the places you suggested. In the winelands we went to Springfield and Bon Courage (where we had a delightful lunch), we have visited a small town called Montagu and stopped also in Boplaas although the place was closed and we did not have the chance to compare their port wine with the real one (from my own country!). Then we went to Outshoorn and the day after we visited the cangoo caves and an ostrish farm "the safari farm" were I actually had the chance to ride and ostrish! The trip to George was absolutely marvelous with a beatifull landscape. We stoped at a place called Wilderness for a drink and then went to Knysna. We briefly saw the views there and went to Plettenberg bay. Next day we visited the Nature's valley, the Tsitsikama park, went to Storms river mouth and did the cannopy trip which was a lot of fun. Then we drove to Francis bay…. The game reserve was also fantastic. Our safari group was multi-cultural and a lot of fun so even there we were lucky! ....
