The Western Cape region
The Western Cape is renowned for its wine farms in the Stellenbosch area providing a very wide variety of wines. Stellenbosch is some 55 kms from Cape Town central. It is also an area that has some 9 000 different wild plants and flowers most of which are endemic to the area. Table Mountain alone has 4 000 of these.
Situated 550km from Cape Town and 230km from Port Elizabeth, Plettenberg Bay was originally called 'Bahia Formosa' or Beautiful Bay by the Portuguese explorers. The drive from Cape Town takes approximately 5-6 hrs along the N2 highway. Alternatively one can take a day or two to meander through the exquisite Little Karoo, which has a beauty of its own, travelling along good quality dirt roads to Oudtshoorn and then on to Plettenberg Bay.
Plettenberg Bay offers an opportunity for a relaxing beach holiday. Having said that there are two golf courses within 10 kms of the home - Plettenberg Bay Golf Course and Goose Valley with another two some 35 kms away in the Knysna surrounds. Three of these courses are rated amongst the top 20 golf courses in the country.
Whale watching off boats is a favourite past time with the launching site a mere 8 kms from the home.
Then of course there are the canopy adventures in the famous Tsitsikama Forests the Storms River Gorge and river mouth some 40 kms from Plettenberg Bay. The scenic Knysna forests and Knysna laggoon are within a 30 kms reach. Oudtshoorn and its renowned Cango Caves and old ostrich farms is an easy 170 kms day's drive there and back.
The Garden Route – Plettenberg Bay is in the centre of the Garden Route which, as its name suggests is a picturesque stretch of coastline which starts in George and Herolds Bay to the west through the Wilderness, Sedgefield, Knysna and then heading east from Plettenberg Bay, Natures Valley, a beautiful little holiday village on the coast, Storms River and beyond.
