      stop was Blair Castle. The current owner, The 11th Duke ...

      Hung. Over.

      Meant to leave the house at 8am today but even Justine crawled in at 10:30am and said come on guys...let's go...

      We jumped into a freezing cruiser and then into an even more freezing and uncomfortable van and drove a loonnnng way to Grahamstown to the Kwantu Elephant Sanctuary. We had organised our weekend to ride elephants and then go to a predator camp to see white lions. We paid our 350R and jumped on the back of 4 ...
