10 days in April with 3 children: CT-PLETT-CT

hello, i would like to post the itinerary i've come up with and hopefully receive some feedback:

we will be driving from cape town to plettenberg bay then flying back from george.

7.4 arriving Cape Town afternoon

spending 3 nights in CT (2 full days)

10.4 driving perhaps via Franschhoek to the R62 with an overnight (Barry? Montage? Swellendam?)

11.4 driving to Plett via stopping at Oudtshoorn (to hasty??)

4 nights in Plett

15.4 flying out of George to CT

2 nights in CT

then fly home

- should we stay another night somewhere (Oudtshoorn?) before arriving in Plett?

- getting to the R62 is it worth detouring through Stellenbosch Franschhoek? or the N1?

- we decided to give Gordons bay/Hermanus a miss since its April.. no whales..wise?

many thanks for any of your comments..

** Hi - have two kids (5 and 7), live in CPT and have just (October) done Oudtshoorn and Plett trip.

Please see my comments below.

7.4 arriving Cape Town afternoon

spending 3 nights in CT (2 full days)

Table Mountain, Aquarium, Waterfront, Beaches (Camps Bay, Clifton, Muizenberg), Constantia wine route, cape point.

10.4 driving perhaps via Franschhoek to the R62 with an overnight (Barry? Montage? Swellendam?)

11.4 driving to Plett via stopping at Oudtshoorn (to hasty??)

Lots to do in Oudtshoorn - you'll need a day: Cango Caves, Cango Ostrich farm, Cango Wildlife Ranch.

I would get to Oudtshoorn and spend the night there. Try www.turnberryhotel.co.za/‎ (personal experience).

4 nights in Plett:

Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, Plett Puzzle Park, Radical Raptors, Knysna Elephant Park

15.4 flying out of George to CT

2 nights in CT

then fly home

Stellenbosch/Franschhoek nice to visit a couple of wine farms if you have time. Pretty places. Your call. Drive to Oudtshoorn is +/-4.5 hrs non stop.

- we decided to give Gordons bay/Hermanus a miss since its April.. no whales..wise?

Yes, wise.

many thanks for any of your comments..
