Day 2: TOUR OPTIONS
You won’t be able to do them all but we can help you figure out which will fit without being rushed. Here are the most popular tours that we recommend for you:
WINE FARM TOUR: Your private driver will tell you about the local wineries and take you to 3 of the best wineries in the area. Included are 3 tastings at each winery and snack platters that will delight your senses. The wine farms are among the most beautiful properties you will see and the views of the Tsitsikamma mountains are awe inspiring.
BIRDS OF EDEN: BOE is the largest free flying aviary in the world. This is a self-guided tour where you walk through a jungle-like atmosphere with 3,500 birds from over 220 species, with the main focus being African birds. It’s a beautiful walk on nice walkways and you’ll feel like you’re deep in the woods or forest in several areas.
MONKEYLAND: Monkeyland is the world’s first free-roaming multi-species primate sanctuary during which you’ll see more than 700 primates comprising of capuchin monkeys, ringtail and black-and-white ruffed lemurs, saki monkeys, squirrel monkeys, vervet monkeys, 2 species of langur, howler monkeys, gibbons, etc in their forest home. This is located right next to Birds of Eden but is a guided tour so you’ll go with a group. This is a unique experience and we highly recommend it!
GUIDED GAME DRIVE: Plettenberg Bay has Game Reserve located conveniently just 15 minutes from town. Your knowledgeable game rangers will enthrall you with interesting facts about the wildlife you will view on your 2 hour open vehicle safari. Plett Game Reserve is now home to all five of Africa’s famous Big 5, with the recent arrival of elephants to complement the buffalos, rhinos, leopards and lions. You will also encounter many species of antelope, giraffe, zebra, hippo and crocodiles.
Day 3: Morning Tour, PM Departure
This morning you’ll enjoy either an early morning river kayak tour on the Keurbooms River or an Ocean Safari out in the bay. Both of these are early morning tours so you’ll have plenty of time to check-out of your hotel after the tour is over.
RIVER KAYAK TOUR: Enjoy a morning private tour on the Keurbooms River, just minutes down the road from your hotel. Your private guide will take you through this glassy water river inlet and listen for Fish Eagles soaring above, one of the many Kingfishers that call this place home and if you’re lucky, the elusive river otter! This is a gorgeous way to spend your last morning in Plett!
OCEAN SAFARI TOUR: This morning you’ll set out for a beautiful morning out on the water with Ocean Adventures. You’ll take off from Central Beach and go around the bay looking for dolphins, sea birds, whales, seals and more. You’ll see Robberg Peninsula and the entire area from a new perspective! It’s an exciting “landing”.
