We were sad to jump into the Land Rover for the last time with Cameron and Ben to travel to the airstrip on Thursday. We had had such a wonderful time. The fellows had a treat for us, they had tracked the lions that morning and found them resting after a wharthog kill under a bush not far from the airstrip. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing them again before we said goodbye and boarded the plane. What a very special place this is with very special people. We hope to bring the grandkids here one day to experience nature in the raw.
We landed in Cape Town at the Execujet Terminal after an easy flight with new friends Rolf and Fatima from Munich. We will get together for dinner on our last night in Cape Town. Waiting for us at the terminal was our driver from Contantia Uitsig where we’ll spend 3 nights enjoying the wine country, views of Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch Gardens, the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point. Adrian and Susan Doull have taught us that it is very easy to arrange drivers frm the hotels and a good way to support local people whose living is earned in the tourist industry. Tourism is down right now with troubles in Europe and USA so locals want and need the work very badly.
