With the relentless heat of Stellenbosch having hit me, I decided to head for a swim. I invited Eduard along, and we headed for the Worcester side of the Huguenot tunnel where we would walk to the waterfall at the top of the Kromrivier.
Month: January 2016
With the advent of my third-year just two weeks away, I was adamant to jam-pack my holiday with as much of the outdoors as I possibly could. With fynbos in mind, I was reluctant to hike the Robberg Trail, but upon persuasion from my parents, we set off for Plettenberg Bay.
At around 8:00 in the morning (having parked), we started the trail and followed it in a clockwise direction. Within minutes we reached the The Gap, which provided the opportunity to reflect on the proximity of the nature reserve to Plettenberg Bay.
We had planned a trip to my grandparents in Port Elizabeth, and this provided the perfect gateway to hike the Alexandria Trail.
On Monday the 4th (after a quick stop at the Nanaga Farmstall) we made our way to the Alexandria section of the Addo Elephant National Park, where we spent the night. We were not booked into the Langebos hut as stated on the SANParks website, but rather, we were placed in a house just south of the office. The provision of electricity, crockery and comfortable mattresses was a welcome luxury.
