As one of South Africa's most popular beach destinations, the resort town of Plettenberg Bay comes to life in December and January, when the holiday homes fill up with domestic tourists and foreigner visitors.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Buffalo Bay and Noetzie. Escape the urban bustle at Brenton on Sea and Knysna Lagoon. Venture out of the city with trips to Knysna (Jandreart Studio & Holy Trinity Church). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Elephant Sanctuary and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Garden Route (Tsitsikamma, Knysna, Wilderness) National Park.
