RE: Garden Route
Knysna is a good base for 4 nights Knysna Quays is great rent one of the self catering apartments, they are one of the best value options in the country. Try JJ’S Restaurant for your evening meal but make sure you book when you arrive.
Unfortunately there has been a very bad land slide and this has damaged the railway line so the Outeniqua Tjoe Choo is not running at them moment and is not likely to for some time.
Storms River and the Tsitsikamma National Park are well worth a visit. I suspect you were thinking of black water tubing, unfortunately due to insurance issues this stopped last year, there is now the treetop canopy tour which takes place high in the indigenous forest and is well worth trying.
Port Elizabeth deserves more than one night despite what the guide books say, it has great beaches 20% of the countries blue flag beaches are located in the city, Sardinia Bay is my favourite and you can walk for miles along the cliff tops, take a township tour to see where most South Africans live and make sure you visit the Addo National Park.
