Taking in charge the bikes. Using the long way round, we join our first step for its intriguing Afrikaanse Taal Monument. Inaugurated in 1975, it is the only monument in the world dedicated to a language. After lunch, we discover the first expanses of vines that grow on the hillsides of Worcester. Vines, vines and more vines ... a little tasting just before our arrival at the stopover?
We start the morning with a visit at a museum, humble in size but huhe for the treasures it contains. Listed as a national heritage, its contents are a tiny part of the legacy of the former East India Company, a powerful symbol of the Dutch capitalism and imperialism. Lunch with local flavors before we meet with the volstruis, well known as the ostrich.
The day begins with a ride through the eastern Great Plains, towards our next destination.
Group lunch at mid-way before arrival at the lodge. A guided safari will lead you to discover one of the largest wildlife reserve of the state. Proclaimed in 1931, Addo National Elephants Park has today the largest population of elephants in the world; it has been initiated to protect 11 remaining elephants on the brink of extinction. Other types of wild animals, such as buffalos, gazelles and some lions can be observed in the park.
Get relaxed today. Very beautiful natural environment that we discovered, freely during this day. Between dolphins, art, shopping, the marina, a motorcycle museum, ... our choice is larg. Relaxing by the pool could be also another option.
Wake up to dawn, departure for the second safari in this 54,000-hectare park. Return to the lodge and have breakfast. In spite of ourselves, we saddle up in southerly direction, across the plains of the Little Karoo, before arriving in Hermanus at the end of the afternoon. This pretty little seaside resort is known to be the kingdom of whales during the southern winter. We can also give ourselves a little rest or reach the heights of the Fernkloof nature reserve which dominates the city.
Like a dessert, it is usually customary to save the best for the end. Under the not very evocative names of Muizenberg, Noordhoek, St James, Fish Hoek, Llandudno Beach, Hout Bat, hide intense and exhilarating shows to be discovered throughout this magnificent day. This is without missing on 3 places which are, the Cape of Good Hope, the Pointe du Cap and especially Chapman's Peak Drive, a coastal road used for advertising purposes by car manufacturers. We end our return with one last panoramic view from the heights of Cape Town over the city.
