Advice, please: Addo Elephant Park to Cape Town AIrport on Garden Route

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for advice on how to organize our visit along the Garden Route in early April. We will leave Addo on the morning of Wednesday, April 6 and we need to be at Cape Town Airport late in the evening of Monday, April 11. That gives us 5 nights and 6 days.

I thought of basing somewhere along the Garden Route (3 nights?) and doing day trips. What are the must-dos and must-sees and where should we base ourselves?

I'd like to stop in Swellendam (Drostdy museum) -- preferably to spend an overnight. Has anyone a view on Swellendam?

I also hoped to make a quick trip to the Cederberg area -- perhaps to drive there from Swellendam for an overnight on April 10 and have a full day there before driving in late afternoon on April 11 to CPT. Our KLM flight to AMS is around 11 PM.

But I'm open to dropping the Cederberg detour, which I know will involve a fair bit of driving. Should I reallocate that time -- to what and why?
____________

Here's some background that may be helpful:

We like dining well; we like nature, history, dramatic scenery. We don't like crowds and love to explore empty areas that few others visit.

We are too old for rough activities: surfing, cage diving etc are off the table. My spouse has a heart condition, so most of our exercise will be with our eyeballs.

Initially, we will spend 6 nights in Cape Town (2 days with a car, so we can visit the Cape and outlying sights). Next, we spend 3 nights in the Stellenbosch area. We travel via the R 62 to Oudtshoorn for 3 nights, to drive through the Swartberg Pass and visit the Cango Caves. Part of that time will be spent at Madi-Madi Game Reserve. Then we go to the Addo area for a couple of nights. These are fixed dates.
