Route taken: Knsyna, l’Agulhas, Stanford, Hermanus, Cape Town

We took in Africa’s most southerly point at l’Agulhas before heading across some farmer’s tracks to hit the N2 again. Some stunning scenery along the Garden Route, and some great views of the coastline as we headed towards Cape Town. The journey from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town is quality and one of the best journeys to do in South Africa.

We stayed over in Hermanus on Thursday night. We arranged to meet Niki and her son, Greg, at the Waterfront in Cape Town on Friday so that they could take us to his flat where we will stay for the next week. Very lucky and it  means that we can crack on with things on Monday.

Great to see the iconic Table Mountain as we came into town on the motorway. It definitely feels like we have reached the end of our trip south getting here. We will go to the Cape of Good Hope next week as it’s the place where most overlanders head to when they reach the end of their journey.

As you well know, England are in town for another game, so we tried to get some tickets before the match. We were offered two tickets, but the sellers wanted way over their face value. Lucky we didn’t after the horrendous result. We ventured over to the big screen at the Waterfront to watch the game. Great atmosphere down there being so close to the ground. We had a late night and took a taxi back to the flat in a cool old 70’s Mercedes.
