This tour is limited to a maximum of 4 explorers per day. We will meet in the center of town. From there we are going to quickly head for the hills via Kom se Pad, stopping to see the San Ambroso chapel in the Knysna forest. We continue the tour up Thomas Bain's master piece, the Prince Alfred's Pass, built in the 1860s, stopping at various spots to admire the views and take epic photos along the way. At about noon we will visit a couple who are deeply involved in the conservation efforts of the area. A light lunch will be waiting for us there, while we are socialising and enjoying the food, we can appreciate their stunning location in the micro town of De Vlugt. From here we will get our feet wet in the Voogt Se Rivier. With cool feet we will engage the 4x4 drive and enjoy the thrill only experienced when 4x4ing with an expert in a beautiful private nature reserve! The reserve offers a variety of flora and fauna endemic to the area. Thereafter our next hostess, and Lady who grew up in De Vlugt, is waiting to bedazzle us with a 3 course dinner made from local cuisine, wine as well as history and tales about the surroundings. with a full stomach and lots of impressions we will slowly meander down the mountain pass back to Knysna, absorb the evening rays and the stunning surroundings and reflecting on the days expedition. The tour ends where it started.
A while ago I turned my back on the soul robbing IT industry in Germany, to return home to do what replenishes my spirit and soul. As a South African-born with German roots, I have lived half my life in South Africa and the other half in Europe. Now finally back home, I am doing what I love most, exploring the back roads and 4x4 trails, looking for history and local people with tales to tell. Promoting off the beaten track tourism and conscientious exploration of the Knysna and Klein Karoo region.
