Carolyn Cooney is such a wonderful, warm, informative hostess. I am so impressed with her entrepreneurial spirit and savvy. Her home was our home, we felt so comfortable here. Her staff were extremely attentive and anticipated our every need. The breakfasts were fantastic and the real silver flatware and Spode China made the meal extra special. Just lovely.

... the worst trained dogs we think we’ve ever met. They do nothing they are asked. **** bags. So we were up by 10am after very little sleep and spent the day looking around the shops in Plett and took a little trip down through Tsitsikama National Park to get to the beach (you don’t actually have to go through the park but we missed the turning and ended up there, which was nice). It was a cold, wet and windy day so we didn’t spend long on ...
... tyre for old time’s sake. With a new tyre fitted, it was the moment we had been dreading; climbing the ladder up to the tent for the last time. Abandoning my smelly shoes on the bonnet for the last time. Lani giving herself her nightly makeshift ‘wet-wipes’ bath for the last time. Switching off the lantern for the last time.
After 227 days of Kwetu being our home and our life, this was it. Our journey was over.
Last stop Cape Town, everybody off the bus ...
