    The N2 road of the Garden Route changes considerably in terms of the scenery and the type of road. Sometimes it feels like a motorway, a dual carriageway and a single road.

    ... farm. The guide was really funny! Met a few Ostrich but didn't fancy riding one as it looked so cruel! Although Phil regrets not doing it now! Watched an American lady do it though, poor ostrich lost a handful of feathers when she fell off. We then headed to Cango Wildlife Ranch, the guided tour was brilliant and we got to see loads of animals ...
