20th Toejo Train trip and overnight back in George
21th George to Oudtshoorn to Swellendam
22nd Swellendam to Hermanus

    Your drive to George is about 3hrs (not really stopping) so to see places like Jeffreys Bay, Storms River, Plettenburg Bay, Bloukrans Pass(highest bungi in the world) and the beautiful Natures Valley as well as stopping at the Titsikamma beauty spots and Knysna you would ideally need at least 6 hours - there is so much to see and remember night falls quickly in this part of the world.

    George to Oudtshoorn is about 90 mins and Oudtshoorn to Swellendam about 3-4 hours. Swellendam to Hermanus is only about an hour or so and Hermanus to Cape Town a further hour (a must visit is Franschoek) about 50k inland. Hope this is not too late for your trip and I hope it helps. Rgds
