After a 10 day stop over in J’burg to catch up with family, refuel and fix a broken cam shaft (something major in the engine) in the car, we were off again. Instead of continuing our journey via the west coast, we decided to do the last leg of our trip, through South Africa, backwards and head east first.

This gave Nic the perfect excuse to revisit her favourite town, Graff Reinett in the Klein Karoo.

Not surprising, and much to Nic’s delight, nothing had changed much since the visit in December. But, this time the new Camdeboo National Park was open and because it was so new, the baboons and monkeys didn’t know about it. Thankfully this meant a peaceful night’s sleep. We did get to meet some meerkats on the way…at least they don’t steal your food.
