So we carried on.
We left Graaff Reinet just before 10:00am. Have to say, that little town is worth a visit for a couple of days. Lots of hiking and a day at the National Park and another day just wandering around town. Pretty little spot.
Another nice day, but it clouded over later on.
Table Mountain, #2. If you ever seen Table Mountain in Cape Town, this was a duplicate. Even included the table cloth cloud cover coming over the edge!
We drove through the town of Aberdeen. Lots of guest houses there too, but we couldn't figure out why. We kept on driving.
After Aberdeen, there's not much to see.
We got to a dam, but the water was all gone!
We drove many miles without seeing another car.
And when we got to Willowdale, we figured we might as well keep on driving!
The next possibility was a town called De Rust. We saw a backpacker place there, and stopped to inquire, but they were full because a large group had just shown up. So the next possibility was Outdshoorn, which is where we were planning on going anyhow.
We had driven into Outdshoorn the day we went to ride the ostriches at Highgate Ostrich Show Farm. At the time, we had said we wanted to return here because it's close to the Cango Caves...and we love visiting caves!
We ended up doing 320 kms (198 miles).
Made our way into town and went straight to the tourist office. They gave us the names of several backpacker type places and we ended up at Oasis Shanti Backpacker Lodge with an ensuite double room for R320 ($33.60) per night. Good deal, and we're almost the only ones here.
