On the 5th of November, we picked up a rental car again (Ford EcoSport this time) and set out towards Namibia. Just outside out Cape Town we picked up some last supplies, mainly gas for our camping cooker and some food. The same day we drove ~6h to make the nearly 600km to Springbok. Unfortunately, […]Read more "A long ride into Namibia"
Unfortunately, somehow our original post on this topic got deleted – so here is a quick summary of what we had previously written: Our last afternoon in Cape Town we dedicated to Lion’s Head. It is a taxi ride from Cape Town and then roughly 40 minutes to hike up to the top including some […]Read more "Cape Town: Lion’s Head"

Although we had our own car, it wouldn’t have made much sense to do a self-drive wine tasting tour as we obviously wouldn’t get very far. Therefore, we wisely chose to visit four wineries with a minibus tour. […]Read more "In Stellenbosch: Red red wine, you make me feel so fine!"
In slightly rainy weather we set out from De Hoop across long and mainly boring country road towards the Southernmost Tip of Africa in L’Agulhas. L’Agulhas is nothing more than a small village and a sign marking the southern end of the African continent and the location where the warm Indian and the cold Atlantic […]Read more "Past the southernmost point of Africa"
