    29th November 26 hrs on the train. We left Pretoria exactly at 3pm as scheduled. There was a hail storm (hail stones the size of golf balls) an hour after we left Johannesburg, which caused signal failure plus other minor delays.

    ... it?

    Franschhoek is only an easy hour long drive from Cape Town, so very accessible. There are loads of lovely B&Bs and small boutique hotels, and a number are attached to vineyards. We stayed at a very low key (and cheap) place called Otters Bend Lodge, which is like a backpacker lodge but with some private rooms.
