The last of the early morning starts. To try and save time we had breakfast in a petrol station food court on route during today's 300 km travel from the overnight Highlander's campsite into Capetown.

Shortly Table Mountain was seen in the far distance sticking way above the surrounding landscape.

Nearly there after 43 days on the road!

What an experience. Sad in many ways.

BUT still one more thing to do on this Acacia trip.

Last thing was a Capetown township tour with Inkululeko Tours and their local guides. We boarded 2 mini vans at Table View and went into several of the townships to see and learn a little about the continual hardships that the coloured are still facing.

That's it ... "The Back Pack" our temporary home in Capetown = Acacia Africa 43 day tour from Nairobi Kenya to Capetown final destination and our trip is finally over - but wait, there more ... read on.

Brother Tim flew in from London and met me here. We are to stay in South Africa for another week with the objective to drive along the Garden Route.

We went for a walk about Capetown but on a Sunday it is like Auckland - closed! After passing a crew filming, eventually got down to the bustling V & A waterfront which Auckland's still to be completed waterfront should be developed like.

Then the group's final dinner.

Thanks Mandy, Tom and all the other travellers from around the world who joined me along this wonderful African journey that we all experienced.
