If the thrill of close encounters with wildlife in breathtaking surroundings is your idea of the perfect holiday experience, join us on this one-day outing to take in some of the best of what the Garden Route has to offer.

After departing Port Elizabeth at 08h00, we start our Tsitsikamma adventure at the Knysna Elephant Park where visitors have the unforgettable experience of interacting closely with the park’s resident herd of rescued elephants, walking among them and having the option of purchasing food to feed them.

We then head to Birds of Eden, and enjoy a leisurely walk through the largest free flight aviary in the world where an array of breathtaking bird species can be viewed at close quarters in a forest habitat. The scarlet ibis, knysna turaco and blue-and-yellow macaw are among the sanctuary’s many spectacular inhabitants.

A light lunch at the Birds of Eden restaurant is followed by a guided walking tour of adjacent Monkeyland, a sanctuary housing over 500 free-roaming primates of numerous species. Monkeys and lemurs can be seen darting around the forest canopy, and are viewed from the ground as well as a suspended walkway level with the tree tops.

Our final stop for the day is at the nearby Big Tree in the Tsitsikamma Forest. This magnificent yellow wood tree is over 600 years old as is evident from its enormous size. An easy walk along a wooden walkway takes us through the lush, shaded forest to admire this giant.
