      ... Bay a great little beach on the outskirts of George, Knysna Elephant Park and the opportunity to feed the elephants and indeed ride an elephant if you wanted to. The drive up through the Outeniqua Pass is special. Also the scenery from the viewpoint at the Knysna Heads and a Catamaran ride in the Knysna Lagoon and out into the Indian Ocean.

Luckily, my ...

      ... a later rise than us, she was amused to find a baboon in our back garden and went to get her camera – when she turned around to 5 more baboons staring at her from the kitchen!! They had managed to climb a tree and get in the bathroom window; the outdoor baboon being on the lookout (we were all amazed at how well orchestrated the sting was).
