      ... Three overnight stops were made - at Swellendam, Mossel Bay and George. At Knysna it was a two night stay.
      All the overnight stops were made in Guest Houses and I can honestly say that the standard of guest houses was excellent - great rooms, very clean, free wifi, good parking. In addition there was a great breakfasted selection included at every stop and all of the hosts were very friendly and helpful if you needed information ...

      Back over the Outeniqua Pass and along the coast to Knysna. Today was the visit to Knysna Elephant Park.
      Travelled in a tractor-pulled cart out to the grassy area where the elephants live. When they hear the tractor approaching they move to the feeding area and wait behind the rails ready for us to feed them with the baskets of fruit we had bought.

Being familiar with people, many are unperturbed by visitors - some are down-right inquisitive - and most are stunning. Being a huge free space (containing varied habitats) one never knows what one's going to see next. The random element is captivating and the mile-long stroll on the board-walk took hours. It's well worth a look-in if you're ...

      ... would be sacrilege, so we ventured out from here. Initial plans of a trip to renowned Addo Park (4 hours away), boasting all of the Big 5 (buffalo, lion, leopard, rhino and elephant) were quashed after already spending 1 long day on the road, so we opted for a reserve which was much closer. It was unfortunately quite disappointing to see only 1 of the 5, the lions, which was only because they were in an enclosure. Funnily enough, we didn’t spot one of ...

      ... have ever seen! We took a drive over to Thesen Island where houses on stilts sat on top of the still waters and marsh land. It was all rather up market and lovely there!! We sampled farmed and wild local oysters where you could definitely taste the difference – wild all the way ha ha!!

      One thing though I was surprised by is how many people speak Afrikaans here day to day, so different to Jo'burg where it’s either Zulu or English.

      We drove to ...
