In my last post, I jabbered on about the chalets on stilts in the Agulhas National Park like a lovesick teenager. But if the sights and sounds of the sea aren’t your cup of tea and you want a totally different experience, you can book a renovated old farmhouse a few kilometres inland.
You just have to visit the new rest camp at the Agulhas National Park – at least for one night. Only a two-hour drive from Cape Town, this southernmost camp in SANParks’ repertoire is a bright new jewel that opened about 220 kilometres southeast of Cape Town in December 2010.
It’s probably not a good idea to write about scenic drives along the Garden Route because there are so many to choose from. And that means that whichever ones I choose, someone is bound to be annoyed because I didn’t highlight his or her favourites. For that reason, I’m choosing only one; a single must-do drive that will knock your flip-flops off.
Over the past few posts I’ve been sharing some of my favourite places along the Wilderness–Knysna section of the Garden Route. Today’s post is for the adventure junkies among us, people with ants in their pants unless they’re up and at ’em, doing something that makes them sweat.
