I am planning a self drive trip from Cape Town to Shamwari/Port Elizabeth.
We are on a tight schedule, so for this is what we have planned:
2.5 days and 3 nights in Cape Town
1 day/night in Franschhoek
2 nights in Knysna
3 days/3 nights Shamwari Game Reserve
This would be perfect except that we do want to visit Oudtshoorn for the Ostrich Farm and the Wildlife Farm and are interested in the caves.
Are there any strong opinions against/for staying in Knysna for 2 nights and skipping Oudtshoorn. Given it is a 5hr drive from Franschhoek, I'm not sure we can do the activities we want in half a day, or even one day. Are the caves worth it? I have been to ones in Vietnam, China, and the US...
Any ideas on how to structure these two days would be great. I actually only know of the Featherbed Nature Reserve in Knysna to visit, we were planning on visiting the Plettenberg Bay elephant sanctuary on the way to Shamwari the next day.
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
