// THE GARDEN ROUTE AT IT’S BEST: Spotting Elephants and Lions at Addo National Park, Watching whales, dolphins and seals at Plettenberg Bay, Hiking the Tsitsikamma waterfall trail and close up with Zebra’s in De Hoop Nature Reserve – This really is the Garden Route at it’s best!
A lifelong dream came true: We visited South Africa! We were there for 12 days and really made the most out of it!!
This video is the second of the three South Africa VLOGs that I made and is all about our Day 5-8 of our South African Adventure!
DAY 5: We left Stellenbosch in the morning and drove a very scenic route towards De Hoop Nature Reserve. We spotted zebra’s, baboons and ostriches on the road before arriving to fantastic dunes with the best view over the Indian Ocean! We had to drive about 100km over unpaved road, but it was totally worth it! We then continued our way along the garden route towards Plettenberg Bay.
DAY 6: We woke up in Plettenberg Bay and did a 2 hour kayak trip! We were supposed to see some dolphins and seals, but weren’t really around 😦 We therefore booked another adventure: A boat trip! We were very very lucky to find many dolphins and seals swimming and playing all around our boat and we even spotted a Bryde Whale even though it wasn’t even whale season!! Pure HAPPINESS!
DAY 7: We drove from Plettenberg Bay to Tsitsikamma National Park. We hiked the mouth trail with suspension bridges over the stormsriver, followed by the 3 hour waterfall trail which was spectacular! We continued our trip to Port Elizabeth in the evening.
DAY 8: Got up early to drive to Addo Elephant National Park! An amazing one-day selfdrive safari, we spotted elephants, zebras, buffaloes and even a pack of lions!! Speechless and thankful for this experience, we finished our Gardenroute tour and are headed for the next destination: The Krugerpark!
Our South Africa adventure will continue in the Kruger National Park, but all of that you will see in the next VLOG! Thank you for watching and I can’t wait to show you part three of this awesome South African Adventure!
