Baboons on the street in Krüger Park
Our favourite african buffalo
Martina & Christin in the R.S.A.
Next morning we got up early like always (it is getting dark at around 18h and at 21h it feels like in the middle of the night and at 22h you find us usually in our beds) and went to the beach. Two hours later we arrived at the backpacker in buffalo bay really closed to the wild beach and 15km far from Knysna where we had a township tour at 14h (it was interesting but poor as expected). The landscape around is very beautiful with huge beaches, lagunes and waves for surfers. Since it is wintertime here it is a great time to travel not to busy and overcrowded. We got a fantastic dinner at the hostel for around 6 euros with big salad, lamp chops, something like "Hirse" called pap with warmed tomatos and a sweet corn (Kolben don't know the name). There was a storm at night and wo got up even earlier than normal. Christin almost drove me crazy with her activism :-) (remark Martina)
After breakfast we went to Oudtshoorn. The stop in wilderness was supposed to be the lunchbreak but after arriving there 1 hour later it was kind of too early (ok we will study the map better next time).
We visited already the cango caves and a wildlife ranch where we saw cute lions, crocodiles and more. This area is famous for its austrich farms so guess what we will have for dinner tonight.
P.S.: The treehouse was actually really that one we slept in we did not managed to upload the pictures yet (but you are welcome to our 5-10 hour presentation after the holiday ;-)
In the afternoon we did treecanopy - you slide on ropes from tree to tree, more or less 30m hight, the longest rope was about 90 m and that was all in the rainforest, really great and thrilly (you can buy a dvd for 5 euros when we are back home ;-)
Pizza for dinner in the hostel while watching skidive and bungeejumping vidios. In general in this area you have a lot of possibilities to do extrem sport and scary things.
Next to stormsriver is the highst place to bungeejump in the world, 216m (from a huge bridge) - but we do not need every type of thrill. We just went there this morning to watch crazy people doing that. Afterwards we went to our hostel in Plettenberg Bay, we are actually the only guests here and have a big room for ourselves with seaview. We spent the day with hiking around robberg peninsula and we saw dolphines and seals and big waves - was a great tour! Now we are going for oysters.
Tomorrow we are heading for Knysna.
