          Just up the coast from Mossel Bay is the town of Wilderness. It's a strange place, half wild forest, lakes and rivers, and half over-developed with holiday homes and guesthouses. Fortunately it's fairly easy to walk around and get out of town.

          I stayed to the east of the town, in a small hostel/lodge. The sort of place you could just stay for several days relaxing, that feels a million miles from anywhere once the sun sets - no street lighting ...

Probably the nicest English people we'd met in my opinion. Many had been a little stuck up till now.

I decided to take my own canoe in case time got short and I had to make my own way back… this my friend, was a bad idea. One big canoe, one little girl paddling – even working so much that my shoulders burned like acid, I was still behind the whole way! Watching Richard and Pebbles breeze past with fags hanging ...

          ... strolling 18 kms instead of the pre-arranged 10. We headed back trully drowned and miserable and washed up and rewarded ourselves with a beer. Met a swiss couple fabio and heidi (yes heidi!!!) and sat with them for a while. they were interning as part of their language courses and were equally ****** off about the rain. We decided to pack up and head to mossel bay early in the morning hoping that we would wake up ...

          ... for Shakaland. Shakaland is a living museum where some members of the Zulu tribe lived in a traditional setting amongst a modern world. It was actually built initially for the movie "Shaka Zulu" and later became a living museum. There we saw traditional Zulu dancing and ate a traditional meals. We learned about how King Shaka united the Zulus together by conquering various surrounding ...
