One night at the luxurious 4-star Lofts Boutique Hotel, Thesen island, Knysna, where you can enjoy the serenity of nature expressed by the changing moods of the lagoon, the magnificent views of the surrounding hills and forests and an impressive variety of bird species.

Two nights at the Zuurberg Mountain Village, Sunday River Valley, provides the ideal base from which to explore the Addo Elephant park and surrounding areas. Great bird watching is possible while on a safari.

And the final two nights at the Karoo Gariep New Holme Karoo Guest House situated on the banks of the Seekoei River nestled amongst trees that attract a wealth of birdlife, this is where you can enjoy an authentic Karoo farm with all the comforts of home.
