Garden route to PE to cape town- active family


I am looking for some advice. My family and I (boys aged 8 and 10 and adventurous)are visiting SA for the first time in Feb-March, with the first 4 nights spent in Madwike in a lodge, after which we fly straight tp PE for a lesuirely drive (12 days) down to Capetown for an early AM flight out.

I would be most obliged if someone could recommend an active itinery that takes in coast, beach, food, animals, wine, shark diving, rafting,horseriding, etc, with recommendations as to which resonable qualtity B&B's etc and towns to stay. we would probaly want to spend no less than 2 nights in one location. We would have to return the car the night before we depart, and would like an accommodation recommendation for that night resonably taxiable / shuttleable in the am to the airport.

Many thanks
