What a fab trip! We spent the last two days of the trip with J.p's family in Cape Town, we had a lovely day watching Kenan race his quad bike and shopping. We had a huge dinner in the evening with more of the clan to celebrate J.P's Mum's birthday and another bit of shopping and lunch (my last African steak!) on the sunday before I left for the airport! J.P is staying to spend the next two weeks preparing the truck for the container to ship it home.

We drove through Addo Elephant park and surprisingly saw some elephants ?they were in herds of about thirty with the women and babies together and the males either a little ahead or further behind, but a bit to far away for good photos.
