    We were very pleased to find our room to be self-catering as one does get tired of restaurant meals when travelling. Their breakfast was excellent - even with cappuccinos! Loved the location near the waterfront and downtown.

    We ate breakfast at the Rose Cafe, part of our hotel accommodation. They have very good cereal!

    We had both agreed to take the Terblans walking trail recommended by the Knysna Info Centre not realizing that it involved miles of dirt roads and fording a mountain stream. We finally gave up when we made it to the Gouna Forest Station and …

    We left Oudtshoorn in haze - the fires were still spreading smoke. Unbelievably we saw the same group of black Porsche Panameras we had seen in Cape Town earlier in the trip, although they looked much dirtier. Although we asked what their objective was, we were brushed off this highly secretive test.

    Rested well and back much improved. Had leisurely breakfast with lots of Rooibas tea. Rapidly becoming my favourite tea. Headed out to the Knysna Heads. Man is this place wild. If you go out make sure you go down to the 'beach' on the seaward side approached from the top view point. The wildest seas I have ever seen. Frighteningly exciting. A real cauldron of rocks and rushing waves. Later looked around Leisure Island by contrast a quiet 'white' place on a low secure ...

    The overnight stay at Oudtshoorn was interesting. The boutique hotel was a little tired along with our hostess. However, the restaurant we ate at last night was one of the best we had been to once we found it. Oudtshoorn is famous for ostrich and I had my first taste of that last night followed by Western Coast sole which was absolutely delicious. We were both really tired and settled down to ...
