OMGoodness, look at everything we did in Cape Town South Afrika! BTW, this is how Africa is spelled in Afrikaans, one of the 12 native languages!
Thank you Anke, Tyl, and Boyson — for everything! We can’t wait to see you again soon! I’ll miss seeing your kittens and the golden retrievers we saw running on the beach every morning.
If you need a great place with ocean views, beach sports, easy access to Cape Town, and more (as you saw in my posts), then just contact me 🙂 and I can put you in touch with our good friends, Anke and Tyl.
And now, we are on the road again, folks!
This time, we are on the Garden Route which is partially along the ocean, and also, inland in the beautiful mountains, which you will see first.
The name of the route is 62, and it is very famous in South Africa, like the USA’s Route 66.
We stopped for a picnic lunch at a winery on the way to Robertson. My parents said that the wine in South Africa is delicious, and normally what would be a $20 bottle or more in America, only costs $3 – 5 in South Africa!
I enjoyed “backpackers,” or hostels, as they are called in America so much, that we all agreed we should try out a few more in South Africa.
On the way, we were amazed to see this Ostrich Farm — there were hundreds of them, and I have never seen an Ostrich this close — it was so cool!
I was amazed and I think you will be, too. Take a look at this video:
The first night, we stayed in a hostel made out of a large house, which our hosts, Kevin and Linda live in, too.
We had a great time making our dinner in the backpacker kitchen.
The owners, Kevin and Linda, were very nice. We had a lot of fun talking to them with a fire after dinner.
Kevin and Linda had just completed a six-month camping (in a 4WD truck) all around Afrika!
I had a lot of fun sleeping on the top bunk.
The next day we had a quick breakfast and set off again.
We headed to a great town called “Wilderness.” The name does not do it justice — it is a great and wild little town! We headed to another backpacker/hostel called “The Wild Farm.”
It is literally a farm, or used to be a dairy farm.
The grandpa owner/farmer still lives on the property, and he and all his kids agreed to turn it into a very unique backpacker a few years ago. It was so fun!
There were cows right outside our cabin window!
There was a really friendly cat who came right into our room, and three really cute dogs…… No surprise, but I loved it all!
We had a morning meal and headed out along the Garden Route for our next adventure.
