Trip back to South Africa - land of my birth

We had a great time in Cape Town and the Western Cape. The accommodation was very good. Some of the guest houses on the Garden Route - were like luxury boutigue hotels really . Very impressive. We loved the property at Tinswalo Boulders in Simonstown above the penguin beach . Our room and balcony with its panoramic views was amazing . Our driver and guide Nigel was very good . Very personable and keen to ensure we had a great trip. Please send him a special thank you from us. The Garden Route tour was good . Rodney the guide was great . There was a bit of an overlap - since we went on a wine taster in Franchoek on the tour and then returned there later on a trip to the Wine lands with Nigel. But we still enjoyed the various vineyards.! Stacey did a good job putting it all together for us.
