Robberg Nature Reserve
Robberg Nature Reserve

The Robberg Peninsula is a nature reserve and a national monument. A moderately strenuous circular walk (11km) which leads out high to Robberg point. A perfect opportunity to see dolphins, penguins, and whales (in season). The huge diversity of bird life, beautiful fynbos, and evidence of rocks dating back to the early Cretaceous period (130 - 110 million years ago) make this an extremely enjoyable walk with spectacular coastal scenery.

Plettenberg Bay Wild Dolphin Tours
Plettenberg Bay Wild Dolphin Tours

Our Ecological Adventure leaves from Central Beach with an exciting beach launch and heads east past a bird sanctuary and beautiful Keurbooms beach to the famous Arch Rock. Here we usually encounter large groups of Bottlenose and small pods of the rare Indo-Pacific Humpback Dolphins as well as some shark species. From Arch Rock we head out into the middle of the bay where pelagic seabirds are normally to be found some 7km from the shore. Out there our resident Bryde's whales may be seen, as well as Common Dolphins or Southern Right and Humpback whales and even Orcas. We then traverse the Bay to the point of Robberg Peninsula and out to the WILD side, often seeing groups of Whales and pods of Dolphins. Cruising back along the inside of Robberg, we see the unique geology from this unusual viewpoint and can closely observe our growing Cape Fur Seal Colony. Finally we head back along the Robberg beach, while a brief rundown on the history, and shipwrecks of the area is given. After passing the Beacon Island Hotel, built on the site of an original Whaling Station, we end the experience with an exhilarating beach landing, again on Central Beach where our 4X4 vehicle will meet you. Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route, is 2 hours from Port Elizabeth and 5 hours from Cape Town. With Knysna only 20 minutes away. Experience a world where the warm Agulhas current meets the temperate Benguela current. In Plettenberg Bay we have an unusual launch method known as the dolly trailer system, where our passengers remain on the boat while it is pushed into the sea. We meet you at our shop in Central Beach, where your tour guide kits you up in life vests and weather proof jackets, and then we transport you down to the beach, where you are greeted by your skipper. Once you are on board, your skipper and tour guide provide you with invaluable information about the marine life and the environment. And for the thirsty there are refreshments served during your cruise (non-alcoholic beverages only).

Oudtshoorn Cando Caves
Oudtshoorn Cando Caves

One of the worlds great natural wonders, sculptured by nature through the ages. It is situated close to the Klein Karoo Town of Oudtshoorn. Mysterious and breathtaking limestone formations in a wide variety of natural colors, a subterranean wonderland. Regular guided tours daily. Until 1894, the tour now known as the Standard Cango Cave Tour, was the only touring option available. The Standard tour starts from the cathedral-like Van Zyl’s Hall and ends approximately 600m further into the cave in the African Drum Room. Even though the tour covers the largest chambers of the Cave system, it makes for relatively easy walking, and includes a reasonable number of stairs. This is, by far, the most popular option and almost all of the visiting tour operators choose this tour. Why? It only takes an hour and enables the visitor to experience the best and largest of the chambers and speleothems that the cave has to offer. Adventure Cango Caves Tour: In the year 1896, further explorations led to a series of confined and mysterious tunnels and interspersed chambers. Names like Lumbago Alley, the Crystal Palace, Tunnel of Love, Coffin, Post Box and the famous Devils Chimney are very descriptive of what can be expected. Modern-day adventure pilgrims can experience this “soft adventure” route, providing that you are not claustrophobic and in good health. Fitness, suitable shoes and sporty clothing (and a bit of guts) are all the gear needed to enjoy the oldest and famous adrenalin icon in South Africa. Because of the popularity of this touring option among the young (and adventurous!) at heart, the numbers are limited to a maximum of 45 people per group. It is strongly advised to BOOK in advance for this option to avoid disappointment. It takes the better part of 90 minutes to complete and will leave a lasting impression also guaranteeing many interesting stories to be told afterward. It is also the safest way to explore the geological ‘clockwork’ of Africa.

The Outeniqua Choo-Tjjoe Steam Train
The Outeniqua Choo-Tjjoe Steam Train

The Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe is the last steam hauled scheduled passenger train operating in Southern Africa and runs daily (excepting Sunday) between George and Knysna. The route of the Choo-Tjoe is from George, via Victoria Bay, Wilderness, Sedgefield and Goukamma to Knysna and encompasses some of the most spectacular scenery in South Africa in the heart of the Garden Route lake district. The section from Victoria Bay along the Cliffside and over the Kaaiman’s River viaduct to Wilderness is the highlight of the journey. The railway line between George and Knysna was opened to traffic in 1928 and when built was regarded as one of the most expensive sections of line in the world - today it is rated the most beautiful. The George-Knysna line was declared a preserved railway in 1992 and officially handed over to the Transnet Heritage Foundation in 1993. At that time there was only a daily return trip from George to Knysna with an average of 40 000 passengers per year. Today approximately 115 000 passengers travel the line annually of whom 70% are foreign tourists. In the summer months between mid-August and mid-May two trains are run each day giving a return service from both George and Knysna, the trains crossing at Sedgefield. In winter (mid-May to mid-August) solely the George-Knysna return service is operated. All trains departing from and arriving at George use the new Choo-Tjoe station at the Outeniqua Railway Museum and passengers can enjoy a visit to the Museum as well as a trip on a steam train. During the peak tourist seasons the train is run as a passenger train, but during off peaks, the trains also convey freight. Carriages used date from 1903 to 1950 and are all of the suburban side-door type. Light refreshments are available on the train and souvenirs and memorabilia may be purchased at the Knysna station.

Botswana: Chitabe Walking Safaris
Botswana: Chitabe Walking Safaris

We offers a two night Walking Trail experience for those who want to be closest to nature. Guests will be accompanied by an armed and licensed "accredited" walking guide who will take them on the informative and adventurous walk through the grasslands and woodlands of the Okavango Delta. The party will sleep out at two of the hides which are located in the concession. Both hides accommodate guests on elevated platforms and each guest will sleep in the hide under a mosquito net, but still being able to gaze up towards the spectacular African night sky. Long drop toilets and hot bucket showers will provide the ablution facilities. The two hides are located in very different habitats. One hide is situated on the edge of a floodplain which often contains water and enables one to see the wet side of the Okavango and the other hide is within the woodland on the edge of an extensive pan system, which often sees an abundance of elephant activity. The walking trail experience allows guests to get their feet on the ground and really feel, smell and touch Africa. We will walk for several hours a day, but it is not a strenuous walk and can be enjoyed by almost all guests. Guests can spend the first and/or their last night back at either of our camps.
