My husband and I will be arriving in Port Elizabeth in about 2 weeks around 9-10 in the morning and intend to drive straight to Addo, to spend the day there and return to Port Elizabeth that evening. I was originally planning on spending the following morning in Port Elizabeth to take a look around and driving to Storms River around noon, spending couple of hours in Storms River, then driving to Plettenberg for dinner and staying overnight in Knysna. However, after doing more research, I know feel like we should also stop in Nature's Valley but don't see how we can fit all that in one day. Would you recommend if we skip Port Elizabeth and have an early start that day so we can see Nature's Valley or skip Nature's Valley? Also, would you recommend kayaking or snorkeling in Storms River? Finally, is the water warm enough for swimming around this area this time of the year or would we need wet suits?
Since we have one more day in Knysna after, I figured we can drive back to Plettenberg for whale watching, so that part I'm not too concerned about.
Thanks in advance.
