Day 1 – 21 July – Fisherhaven to Langebaan

and we are off, wow, how hard has it been to get accommodation in the South African National Park Kgalagadi. We have cancelled this trip  three times this month, but thanks to someones late cancellation, it can only be, we’re finally going to see the Black Maned Lion.

We took a slow drive today, the roads were wet and it was very windy. Our first stop today Peregrines Farm Stall on the N2, just outside Grabouw, perfect coffee and the best biltong I’ve had in ages.

A lovely visit with Phil’s sister in Thornton, yummy chocolate buscuits and a good break out of the car and we were back on the road, we are staying tonight in Langebaan at my Dad and Sisters, wonderful to be with family before we hit the road. Erica is of course over the moon to be with her Gumpy, Aunty Helen 🙂 and her Aunty Linda and Lorraine too.

On the way to Langebaan we stopped at another farmstall, on the R27, not Vyevalley the other one, I’ll get the name on the way back, but anyway they have devine bread and a wild cat sanctuary. It was raining so the tours were cancelled but we’ll check it out on our way home.

Tomorrow we’re stopping at a wine farm just outside Picketberg, for some highly recommended organic red wine… can’t wait to give feedback
