As you’re aware back in October I headed off on a South African adventure. It was pretty awesome, sorry to rub it in. One thing that I did find though was I wish I had done a little more research. So you will find all the things I think were amazing all rolled into one handy post just incase you’re heading that way on your next adventure.
Walking with Elephants at Hazy View – walking hand in trunk is an experience I will never forget oh and not to mention the slobbery wet kiss.
Ulusaba for safari, you can read all about that here. It was 100% amazing I can not even begin to describe how much fun safari was and how amazing it was seeing all the animals.
On to the garden route. Something to note Hazy View to Ulusaba was a good few hours drive, Then Ulusaba to the garden route was a few more hours on a flight.
40 minutes on from Port Elizabeth we found Beach Horse Trails Papiesfontein at Jeffreys Bay. This was brilliant. The horses were tame and friendly perfect for us beginner types and the views on the beach were incredible my pictures just don’t do it justice.
Franchhoek and Stellenbosch the wine region, because I do like a cheeky glass of wine.. I can’t not mention Lavender Farm in Franchhoek, the rooms were beautiful, the whole complex was so picturesque and it provided the perfect retreat for the times you wanted to relax and be away from the wine.
The Warwick have delicious picnics which made it stand out, the food really was brilliant and the estate is picturesque. Look out for the wedding cup, something to try if you’re there with your other half. If you can both drink out of the cup at the same time with out spilling the wine, then you’re destined to be together.
Ernie Els the golfer has a vineyard, named after himself obviously. Stunning views a little golf practise and really good wines, what more can you ask for?
Fairview I definitely liked for the cheese, lots of cheese tasting as well as the wine. Look out for The Goat Father, the wine is good but the name is even better.
Cape Town helicopter ride a brilliant way to see all of cape town. Im not saying don’t go to all the attractions but it really does give you the best views of Cape Town.
Boulder beach quite literally the cutest beach on the planet. Little tip the viewing deck is rammed full of people but the beach itself is nice and quiet and there a still plenty of penguins for you to get the perfect picture. You do have to pay and your ticket is valid for both parts but it’s more than worth the money.
