he accommodation 30 minutes outside of Swellendam (Round the Bend) is rustic, but for many a real highlight of the trip. The A frame cabins themselves are basic, however its more than made up by the setting, right on the Breede River. There is plenty of outdoor space with a family play area, dining room and bar. The games room has a pool and table tennis table with plenty of room to play sports with the staff and other families, ideal for older children. Cabins have private open air shower rooms attached and have mosquito nets. The food is simple but homemade, wholesome and delicious, served in a buffet style format. A perfect spot to enjoy getting away from everything, really friendly staff and big fire pit to sit around after dinner to enjoy a drink and socialize.
Our next stop is Oudtshoorn. Our locally owned and operated guesthouse offers en-suite accommodation with a TV and coffee and tea making facility. Wifi is available. The owners take great pride in their garden, there is a small treehouse with a seating area, a decent sized swimming pool, ideal for relaxing in after a busy day of activities and the accommodation offers a welcome and homely feel.
The resort complex in Plettenberg Bay, where we have two nights has two swimming pools and an excellent restaurant. Rooms are well decorated with a TV, en-suite tea and coffee making facility and safe. The setting is truly fantastic, it's a short walk through the sand dunes to the beach on Plettenberg Bay with endless white sand to enjoy.
One of the highlights of the trip is the Teniqua Treetops in Sedgefield with individual treehouses scattered around the complex which are built into the trees and consequently offers wonderful views of the surrounding area that can be taken from the balcony. Each treehouse varies in design but generally they will have a living room, kitchen and a sleeping area. The main area of the complex has a large living area with lots of games, restaurant and a pool and table tennis table. There is also a hot tub and swimming pool.
We move onto the Tsitsikama Coastal National Park where we sleep in cabins (not ensuite - communal shower blocks are available). The cabins are all together with a separate restaurant close by and there are amazing walks that can be taken in the area.
Our final accommodation is in Addo National Park where we sleep in family cabins. Meals maybe served during the game drives and served by the ranger.
We have pools at the hotels in Plettenberg Bay, Calitzdorp and Cape Town as well as at several points along the coast on this tour
