The final stint

Embarking on the last leg of our jouney we left Plettenberg bay, driving along the Garden Route stopping over for one more night. It is certainly a nice drive, with some nice towns, but hardly the most interesting bit of South Africa. From around George we drove into the country going through the small Karoo, which was a nice drive.

From there we went via a couple of wineyards to Gaansbaai to do the Great White cage dive. Even if visibility at this time of the year is pretty poor, we did get a good look at a couple of them. They are very impressive, but the water was seriously cold.... From Gaansbaai we headed towards Franshoek visiting the penguin colony at Bettys Bay en route.

After spending the night in Franshoek we went to Cape Town to sell the car. This was something we feared somewhat, having had a bit of hassle with Drive Africa earlier, but everrything we completely smooth!

Having sold the car we spent the remaining days in Cape Town being proper tourists. We shopped, went to Robben Island, Table Mountain, Cape of good hope, on a Township tour, and we out in Cape Town. This was a nice easy ending to our amazing trip.

The End.... I suppose
