Garden Route Help (May and Campervan)

Hello Everyone,

Just looking to get some itinerary ideas for the Garden Route element of my trip. I have done a Great Ocean Road trip in Australia so have a general idea as to how much driving can be done in a day and not to pack too much in, but looking for the advice of more experienced travellers.

My itinerary is:

May 4th Land at Port Elizabeth and pick up Camper Van. Then drive to Addo National Park.

May 5th and 6th – 2 full days in Addo National Park in Campervan

May 7th – Leave Addo National Park and begin Garden Route

May 8th and 9th – Full days on the Garden Route

10th – Need to arrive in Cape Town by 1600

11th May onwards – 6 full days in Cape Town

I will be travelling in May and will have a Campervan on my travels on the Garden Route.

My Partner and I plan to do Shark Cage Diving whilst in Cape Town and also Seal Snorkelling. Would this be better done off Mossel Bay? Would we have time?

Just looking to get some advice on:

Best Places to stay with Campervan

Must see locations

Good spots for Whale Watching, Osteriches, Meerkats

Any other general recommendations and advice

Thank you
