          Monday 22nd August 2016: Laundry drop off in town before we journey to Monkeyland to have a guided tour of the Madagascan lemurs and vervet monkeys in a rainforest like environment. This and the Birdland next door are both partially sponsored by Ric************. Spectacular river canyons on the way. Our guide tells us to be careful as the monkeys …

          Sunday 21st August 2016: we were told the weather in Swertberg could change in the blink of an eye and that is what happened. We awoke to a hurricane cold wind and breakfast is over there in the other building. Apparently they now seal their windows with silicone as they used to blow out with putty. Leonie & Reon brave the weather to wave us …

          Our first stop today was the Cango Caves. Quite spectacular we've seen a few caves over the years but none with the density of features this one has. We then visited an ostrich farm getting up close and personal. There was an opportunity to ride the ostrich for those under 70 kg, needless to say we didn't qualify. We then visited the historical …

          ... over from the vast expanses of farming land. Mossel Bay is a pretty seaside town, renowned for its oysters, dolphins, whales and sharks. Our hotel had spectacular views across the harbour and bay and we enjoyed a walk along the white sands of its attractive beaches in the morning.

          From there we motored along the M2 passed George, Wilderness and Sedgefield until we finally reached Knysna. The Knysna Lake Area is one of the most ...

          ... hours anywhere, this is the place to do it.

          One particularly pretty section is from Gordon's Bay to Hermanus. The road winds on high cliffs overlooking the ocean, and is called Whale Watchers Road. People from all of the world come to watch the southern right whales spawn in the October. So, we missed the whales, but we did see a "shark watcher". As the name implies they try to spot great white and other ...
