Then stood on the eggs - which can take up to 15 stone in weight, but sometimes they can break thankfully not on me as the ones we used were rotten! We also went to visit the cango caves- of course I had to do the adventure tour. This meant ...

    ... we had to come up with strategies on how to get through. It was great fun though!

A great part of the tour was seeing the lions, tigers, cheetahs, and leopards. I’m proud to report I can finally tell the difference between a cheetah and a leopard after this tour, as well!

    ... farm that would let us ride the ostriches. We first took a tour and saw how feather dusters are made, how ostrich eggs are turned into piggy banks, and how ostrich leather is turned into handbags. Then fed the birds out of our hands which was a completely terrifying experience because the long necks wrapped around us, and one even bit Sarah’s ear. Luckily they don’t have teeth, so the bite didn’t hurt. Then we went to ...

That night we stayed in perhaps the nicest beach on the western cape, Plettenburg Bay and while the water was a bi chilly for swimming, the views were gorgeous!
