Anja’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 15 Oct 2005

Location: Oudtshoorn, South Africa

MapDay 3. Went for a walk round town to find breakfast. Ended up in a bit of a theme pub & got the only average meal of our trip. But hey, we were saving ourselves for a blow-out later! Drove up to the Kanga Caves - Africas largest show caves 7 on of the seven wonders of SA. They were truly stunning & amazing to walk through & hear the history. We only did the standard tour but you can be adventurous & go climbing & scrabbling through very small gaps. I think one mad experience per trip is enough & I don't honestly think I'd fit through some of the holes!! From here we headed out to the Safari Ostrich Farm for a bit of fun. We got to meet & stroke some chicks & their parents (gulp) & then sit & ride on them. Unfortunately I'm a tad too heavy so couldn't. Something to do next time maybe?
Anneke had booked us a table at Jemimas for the evening meal. It's one of the top 10 restaurants in SA & boy did it live up to it's name. We4 had the most amazing meal (again) in the most beautiful surroundings (again) drinking lovely local wine! And the whole lot only cost us 80 pounds in total! Talk about good value!
We were so full we were back in bed by 9pm! Very sad.....
