    Day one - plettenberg - 10th march - today I walked with natures giants. I walked hand in trunk with ELEPHANTS!! It was truly breathtaking.

    After a nice breakfast we left the B & B at 8:30 because we had a lot of things to do today; a long day on the road to get to the town of Plettenberg Bay. We drove over Swartberg Pass.
