Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive at Fancourt in George

Today you fly into the beautiful Mother City of Cape Town where you'll catch a short flight up the scenic Garden Route to the seaside town of George. On arrival, collect up your spacious rental car and make your way to Fancourt. Fancourt is a luxurious private golfing, spa and recreational estate, and home to three Gary Player-designed golf courses and the only TaylorMade Performance Lab in Africa.
Days 2-4

Indulge in the Fancourt experience

Fancourt is one of South Africa's premier golf resorts, featuring the championship golf courses of Outeniqua and Montague with their 18-hole parkland layouts, and The Links, offering an exclusive 'British Open' golfing experience. There is also a golf academy with a TaylorMade Performance Lab featuring state-of-the-art practice facilities and a pro shop.

Relax with a range of spa treatments, therapies and massages, or swim in the refreshing pools. Take long walks around the large grounds to enjoy the spectacular beauty of the area, with the mountain ranges looming in the distance. Head over to one of the three amazing restaurants in the evening for your choice of fine dining, relaxed Italian dinners and quality local wines.

Day 5

Travel to Tsala Treetop Lodge

Leave Fancourt behind and enjoy a slow and leisurely drive up the Garden Route to the town of Knysna. Make your way to Tsala Treetop Lodge, situated on the outskirts of the town in a beautiful indigenous forest. Because it's a fairly short drive, you're welcome to stop and enjoy the many activities all along the Garden Route, like canopy tours, walks through the Tsitsikamma Forest, bungee jumping and strolls along the beach.

Days 6-7

Indulge in Knysna's golfing culture

You'll never be lost for activities in Knysna. Enjoy everything from superb international golf courses to pampering spas, boat cruises on the lagoon, hikes and shopping malls. Guests can enjoy the amazing 18-hole championship Golf Courses of the renowned Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa and the Simola Golf and Country Estate - both of which offer spectacular ocean, lagoon and town views, and a challenging course.

The course at Pezula is a sweeping spectacle of fairways and greens flanked by the Southern Cape coastline. The course was designed by David Dale and Ronald Fream of GolfPlan USA and rates among some of the most scenic golf courses in the world.

Simola offers awe-inspiring views and overlooks Knysna and the Knysna Heads beyond. It's the first Jack Nicklaus signature course on the Garden Route and is defined by undulating contours.

The Knysna Golf Club is also a popular choice, set close to the Knysna Heads. The scenic course meanders through tidal pools and between indigenous trees, and has an interesting parkland layout, providing some of the best bent grass greens in the Southern Cape.

Day 8

Say goodbye to the Garden Route

Today you'll say goodbye to the town of Knysna and enjoy a scenic drive back to George, where you can then fly back to Cape Town or continue on your golfing journey through South Africa. This Garden Route itinerary combines well with the 6-day Cape Town Luxury Golf Experience or the 4-day Golf & Gourmet in the Winelands tour.
