What a fantastic guesthouse! We slept in the best best ever, you never want to get out! But you also don't want to miss the delicious breakfast! The ladies were great and we got great advise and help from Pam and her husband (the owners).
We stayed here for 4 nights, sad to leave but we will come back in Capetown!

... etc., etc., etc. We really enjoyed it, we spent 4 hours there. We also went to the African Gold Museum. It was so amazing. Very high security. It has gold jewelry, crowns, masks, dagger handles, septors, etc. dating back several thousand years. I had no idea tribes around Africa were mining, smelting and making gold objects that far back, and some of them were so delicate and intricate. It was truly amazing . Then they show a film on gold through ...
