Our itinerary, lodging info and budget from our road trip through South Africa from September 2-30, 2014.
A mile outside of already-remote Coffee Bay sits a place of stunning beauty and supreme tranquility. Make it down the Driveway of Terror in a tiny compact hatchback and you shall reap your reward.
At our next stop along SA’s hippie trail, Earth Angel checked us into Wild Spirit Backpackers, and suggested we check out the Sunset Tree of Love, Starry Shower and Magical Forest. Seriously.
We make a pitstop in Hermanus, the whale watching capital of South Africa, for a few hours to see if we can’t spot some whale action from the shore…turns out the whales were ready and waiting.
We set out from Stellenbosch on a gorgeous midweek morning with two simple objectives for the day: to cover the 20 miles to Franschoek and to hit a few wineries along the way. Done and done.
After our devastating discovery at the Cable Car ticket office, we eventually make it off the top of Table Mountain and to Camps Bay just in time for our final sunset-over-the-ocean of the trip.
