After refreshment stop at the Storms River Bridge, travel down to Storms River Mouth and view the wild coastline of Tsitsikamma. We travel to the Bloukrans Bridge, which offers the highest Bungee Jump in the world –217m (to participate is an optional extra which we can book for you). It is also the border crossing from Eastern to Western Cape. After stopping in Plettenberg Bay for a light lunch we travel onto the Knysna Elephant Park. Many lovely craft shops along the way.
Overnight Knysna Elephant Park BB (if available) – alternative accommodation at establishments nearby.
An insert from the Knysna Elephant Park website :
“This thatched area within the Boma overlooks the elephant stables. Subtle lighting, antique leather couches and other collectables round off the ambience the elephants create. They are ultimately the stars of the show. At sunset they hurry back to their Bomas for dinner. This compromises of alien species such as Port Jackson Willow, Rooikranz and Black Wattle, the elephants handle these branches with dexterity, stripping the branches of their bark leaving bare sticks behind. They only begin eating this after enjoying massive bowls of what we refer to as porridge, a mixture of special elephant pellets, fruit, vegetables and water. It is fascinating to watch them from the Elephant Lounge. Little Shungu, our baby, rushes around from stable to stable visiting his friends and socialising. Slowly but surely, as the evening wears on, the elephants lie down on their sawdust beds and have a sleep. The Boma sounds slowly reduce with less elephant activity. Where else in the world can you experience this?”
Day 2: Early in the morning you may choose to watch the elephants move out into the open area and after breakfast enjoy the ultimate experience of touching and interacting with these magnificent, gentle giants. We then depart for Knysna and take a lagoon cruise and visit the viewpoint on the top of the Eastern Head. Prepare for a view of the Indian Ocean on your left and the Knysna Lagoon on the right. We return to Knysna Elephant Park to relax and refresh before dinner in Plettenberg Bay.
