The Windermere

Port Elizabeth

Day 1: Port Elizabeth

The Windermere Location Map

Claiming to have the best climate and more sunshine than any other coastal resort in the country, Port Elizabeth is a popular holiday destination. Known more fondly as just PE, the warmth of the hospitality has also earned this major seaport the reputation of being 'The Friendly City'.

PE is renowned for its coastline and long sandy beaches. The calm waters of Algoa Bay, its shores lapped by the warm Indian Ocean, also make Port Elizabeth a mecca for all beach and watersport activities, and it is rated as one of South Africa's best cold water dive sites.

The Boardwalk beach front complex is the lively heart of Port Elizabeth, with its many shops, bars and restaurants, not to mention the casino, small fun fair and cinema.

For golfers, PE is home to one of the world's most challenging links courses, the Humewood Golf Course, which is consistently ranked as one of South Africa's Top 10 golf courses.

The nearby Addo Elephant National Park is home to over 450 elephants, who roam freely among the now 125,000 hectare reserve alongside buffalo, kudu and red hartebeest, and the rare black rhino, as well as over 400 bird species - and not forgetting the unique flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo. Addo has the greatest density of elephant per square kilometre in Africa, and offers some wonderful elephant viewing opportunities.

The Windermere is a stylish boutique hotel combining elements of contemporary chic with classic comforts, situated in the prestigious beach suburb of Humewood and within walking distance to beaches and restaurants.

Enjoy breakfast al fresco in the courtyard or indoors. A room service menu is also available for light lunches and dinners. There is also a swimming pool and pool deck to relax around after a day's sightseeing.

The 10 extremely large and individually decorated rooms are designed in an open-plan fashion with a large lounge area.. The 5 Standard Rooms are set on the ground floor, and open up into the courtyard with easy access to the pool. Two of the rooms are interleading.  The 5 Luxury Rooms are larger, and feature a balcony and lounge area.

Gorah Elephant Camp Location Map

Discover a place and time in tune with the authentic African safari of centuries past. Gorah is the only private concession and camp situated in the middle of the famous Addo Elephant National Park, home the densest population of elephants on earth. 

This exclusive lodge has been restored to its former 19th century colonial splendour, complete with period furnishings, and a beautiful roaring log fire in winter. Coupled with the meticulous service and attention to detail, this really is sheer decadence and a holiday memory that will stay with you forever.

Morning and evening guided game drives on open Land Rovers take you unbelievably close to elephants, rhinos, and other giants of the African bush. Some of the drives will be on the lodge's own concession, where your guide will have the opportunity to drive offroad to get you unbelievably close to the wildlife, but others may be in the Addo Park itself, where your ranger will be restricted to remaining on the road network at all times.

Gorah is a eco-friendly lodge and does not run off electricity. Instead the lodge is powered by generators, solar and gas. 

Each of the 11 tented luxury suites are built on raised wooden porches and furnished with huge canopied doubled beds, modern en-suite bathrooms, cosy sitting areas and private decks with panoramic views across the Addo plains. 

Meals are served in the dining room at the colonial Gorah House, under the stars in the open boma or on the veranda overlooking the popular waterhole.

In-between game drives guests can relax in the cosy library or around the rock swimming pool, or join in a short guided bush walk led by a qualified guide, who will lead you through this experience, interpreting the surroundings with their wealth of knowledge and adding to your memories of Gorah.

Whether marvelling at the herds of elephants gathering around the waterhole near the camp, or having a close encounter with them while out on a game drive, the Gorah experience is unforgettable.

Rosenhof Country House

The Klein Karoo

Days 7 - 8: The Klein Karoo

Rosenhof Country House Location Map

Oudtshoorn (pronounced ‘oats-horn’) is 55 km north of George and is the tourist mecca of the Little (or Klein) Karoo. It is most famous for its ostrich farms.

Before the First World War, thousands of ostriches were bred on farms across the area, primarily to service the growing fashion trend for ostrich feathers. Today, there are still many breeding farms, but the main tourist attraction are the Ostrich Show Farms, which offer interactive tours where you can learn more about the history of ostrich farming and meet the long-legged and long-necked inhabitants face to face.

The impressive Cango Caves are a further 30 km from Oudtshoorn. Naturally formed, the caves are engraved into the heart of the Swartberg Mountains and empowered by the beauty of the stalagmite and stalactite rock formations. The caves are illuminated to show some of the biggest stalagmite formations in the world. The largest chamber is the Grand Hall, 107 metres across and 16 metres high.

Another popular reason to visit Oudtshoorn is the chance to spend a memorable (but early) morning with a family of meerkats. Tours depart before sunrise, and you get to spend a couple of hours watching these endearing little creatures as they wake up and start popping out of their burrows to forage for food and frolick in the morning sun.

Rosenhof Country House is situated on the outskirts of Oudtshoorn, en route to the Cango Caves and Ostrich Farms. The carefully renovated homestead (circa 1852), with its yellowwood beams and ceilings and a tasteful collection of antique furniture, and lovely rose garden exudes an aura of authenticity.

Traditional country cuisine with a cordon bleu touch and an extensive wine collection will make dining at Rosenhof an unforgettable experience. Breakfast is equally memorable, served in the sunny breakfast room overlooking the manicured gardens. There is a cosy bar area and several luxury lounges with fireplaces where guests can relax and admire works from well-known South African artists.

Oudtshoorn is blessed with a fine, dry climate and boasts an average of over 320 sunshine days per year, so in summer, guests can cool down in the large swimming pool with sun loungers and umbrellas or take tea in the manicured gardens. The Wellness Center offers a fully equipped gym, Jacuzzi, sauna and spa.

Rosenhof Country House has 12 stylishly decorated bedrooms, each individually furnished and situated around a beautiful courtyard. Each bedroom also has a private patio. The 2 Executive Suites each have their own pool, lounge and patio, with tranquil views of the Swartberg Mountain and are located 100m away from the main house for extra privacy.

Cape Town

Days 11 - 14: Cape Town

Cape Cadogan Boutique Hotel Location Map

Nestled at the foot of the majestic Table Mountain and bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Town is consistently voted amongst the top cities in the world to visit. It is no surprise therefore that this wonderful city is one of the highlights of a holiday to South Africa.  The climate is Mediterranean, with mild winters and hot summers.

One of the main tourist attractions is the tastefully restored V&A Waterfront, with its many shops, bars and restaurants. There is also an aquarium, and one of the largest craft markets in Southern Africa. Boats offer tours of the harbour from the quayside, and the whole place is always buzzing with life and activity.  The City Bowl is home to many museums and historical buildings, which can all be viewed from a 'topless' hop on / hop off tourist bus, complete with interesting commentary as you ride around the city.

The adventurous can climb up (or abseil down) Table Mountain, windsurf or kitesurf at Bloubergstrand Beach, dive in shark tanks, or do any one of a dozen more adrenalin pumping activities. For a more relaxed pace of life, there are miles of sandy beaches for soaking up the African sun, or enjoy a quiet stroll through the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

The Cape Cadogan is a stately double-storeyed Georgian and Victorian building that dates back to the beginning of the 19th century, and was declared a national monument in 1984. The hotel is situated in the heart of Cape Town, just off the fashionable Kloof Street, so some of Cape Towns' finest restaurants are a leisurely stroll away, and you are just a short drive from the beaches at Camps Bay, Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront.

The lounge and breakfast room have been carefully designed to provide every creature comfort without sparing on the fine detail. There is also a garden and pool area, and a library where you can relax and read or research your itinerary from the computer terminal provided for your convenience.

Each of the 15 rooms are individually decorated, marrying a touch of yesteryear with contemporary chic and bohemian influence. The choice of room at Cape Cadogan is largely dependent on your personal preference and budget. Regardless of room category, comfort is never compromised and the warmth of the charming environment seeps its way through to every corner.

From Cape Town International Airport: Follow Airport Exit signs then pick up on Cape Town signs as you leave the Airport area.

After approximately 3 km you join the N2 double lane motorway heading for Cape Town. Go past the twin concrete cooling towers on right hand side of motorway, and after a couple more kilometres the motorway turns sharply left.

Follow the left curve and N2 City signage. Bear right, still following the City N2 signage. Keep following N2 signage and where the road splits keep to the far right.

At the end of this highway you will arrive at a very large intersection with a few sets of traffic lights. Cross over all of these without turning off. This street is called Buitengracht Street. Continue all the way. Four lanes will decrease to 2 and will eventually become a one-way street called New Church Street. Do not turn off anywhere. At the top of New Church Street there's another intersection with traffic lights. Cross over these also and turn left at the 2nd street after the intersection.

This is Upper Union Street. The Cape Cadogan Luxury Boutique Hotel is situated 120m down the road on the right hand side.
