From L'Agulhas we headed to the De Hoop Nature Reserve. I know it gets really boring to say it was another gorgeous place, but it really was.
Wonderful Fynbos fields and the most amazing unspoiled coastline. We saw quite a lot of whales from the shore. No flower there though...
I saved that for the pont at Malgas. It is the only working hand operate pontoon ferry in South Africa. The children thought this was really cool!
We headed inland to the Klein Karoo and spent the night on a farm in the Matjiesvlei area between Ladismith and Calitzdorp. The farm lies in a valley in the foothills of the Swartberg not far away from the Gamkaskloof.
Can you see the little white house on the photo above? That's where we stayed...
From there we planned to cross over the Swartberg Pass towards Prins Albert but the pass was closed as a result of the snowfall.
Instead we visited the Cango Caves, passed through Oudshoorn and crossed the Montagu Pass towards George.
We are back on the coast and spending the weekend with friends and family in the Mosselbay area.
