Fly-in Big 5 Day Trip (Eastern Cape)
Experience South Africa's Big 5 in one day. Depart Plettenberg Bay airport for a one hour scenic flight to a Big 5 game reserve. On arrival at the private airfield, your ranger will be waiting to take you on your Big 5 Game drive. After your game drive we transfer you to Addo Elephant Back Safaris where you will be treated to traditional South African bush cuisine.


Die Walskipper Restaurant (Jeffreys Bay)
Die Walskipper restaurant in Jeffreys Bay is right on the beach - you couldn't get closer! The food is scrumptious, cooked on open fires or in clay ovens and definitely the best seafood in town. Also on the menu is delicious homemade bread, sublime with juicy jams or freshly made snoek pate. Buckets serve as lampshades and your vino will arrive in a tin mug so the d├ęcor will get you talking! But this all adds to the atmosphere. Expect to be seated at benches with a wood burning fireplace placed at the end of it to fend off the chillier evenings.

The Port Elizabeth Apple Express (Humewood)
The Port Elizabeth Apple Express has since inception in 1903 contributed much to the national heritage, family memories and milestones of South Africa's citizens. Not only is the Apple Express one of only two narrow gauge steam trains still operational in Southern Africa, but it also now runs across the highest narrow gauge bridge in the world - the Van Stadens Bridge, approximately 77 metres (250 ft) - and currently boasts one of the longest working narrow gauge rail systems. The Van Stadens Bridge was built in 1904 and to this day remains operational for train excursion purposes. Come and enjoy a fun-filled family day whilst embraced by picturesque scenery enjoying your picnic. Experience the culture of the local inhabitants who trademark the region, and enjoy the hospitality and friendliness en route to your destination.
