... botanical gardens, saw monkey and bird world and saw the entire coast line. In the evening we went out to try some proper African cuisine - Springbok, Crocodile and Ostrich meat were on the menu and so were some local beers. It was brilliant.

driver had sorted us a table for lunch so we laxed back with views of sea and
mountains. Tried ostrich but the foamy presentation on top was a little off
putting for me?!
