Two days

If we only have 2 days is that enough to do the monkeys and elephants. Also would you recommend driving or flying from Capetown

If I read you correctly you have 2 days in which to travel cape town to plettenberg bay and back......simple answer don't. You will spend both days travelling, not worth it. Enjoy cape town and the surrounding towns in those 2 days

There are elephants much closer to Cape Town. None are truly free-ranging (the ones at Plett are particularly restricted). Nearest I can think of now are at :

If you insist on Plett, you can fly via George or Port Elizabeth. But if happy with flying to Port Elizabeth, then go and see the real thing at Addo.

Thanks we are flying down going to stay at the elephant park that night and I have a driver to take us back to Capetown. That way we will get to see scenery of the garden route. My daughter loves elephants so I made it work.
