Cruising need suggestions for ports in South Africa

We are traveling on Oceania in December making a number of stops South Africa. In Mossel Bay some of our choices are driving along the Garden Route to Knysna. Or visiting an Ostrich Farm after a drive down the Garden Route or visiting the Botlierskop Private Game Reserve with one game drive.

Does anyone have any thoughts on any of these choices?

Mossel Bay Shark Cage diving would be cool if you are into those kind of things.

All kidding aside, we enjoyed the Bartolomeu Dias Museum. It is at Market street and very easy to get to, worth at least 3 hours if not more.

Recently, I was told about something called "Point of Human origins" around Pinnacle Point Beach. I remember seeing a documentary called the Human Odyssey saying human almost extincted around the last Ice Age and ended up there at the tip of South Africa. From there, they survived. Not sure what are the attraction there but if you are interested at those kind of stuff, you can investigate further.

My interest is in the boring nerd stuff. Nice scenery and scenic view points are secondary to me if there are more interesting stuff.
