Will your steering wheel force you to make a turn along the Garden Route, these holidays? Don’t take that same old toll road to Knysna. Take the old Bloukrans pass, follow the twists through the shady, wet tangle of jungle, where the river water is like cold, black coffee, and the monkey ropes dangle, suspended, waiting for Tarzan.
Find a canoe and picnic under the trees with the frogs and the crabs on the banks of Jubliee Creek in Knysna. In Plett, go stand in front of some cool, peaceful, eye soothing paintings by Cape Town artists Arabella Caccia and Cathy Abraham. Their dual exhibition, ‘Essence’, is happening at Chandler House gallery, 20 – 29 December, 6 Crescent Street, Plett.
