We left Namibia and headed in South Africa which Neill was very excited about and made sure everyone knew it aswell. Have camped at a few nice spots on the way to Stellenbosch but the weather has been a bit unbearable. It got to 45c at one place and the only swimming pools that they had were thermal springs which was extremely hot. Even there shower's had no cold water - just hot. It was a day we wanted over and never to be repeated.
Stellenbosch is a lovely place and it was nice to arrive and go shopping, eat in a cafe and wander the streets. We went on a wine tour for a day around 4 wineries which were very impressive for both their wines and their views. Stellenbosch is set amongst rolling hills and beautiful scenery and the grounds of the wineries where top notch. We did pretty well throughout the day and managed to complete all 4 wineries considering the amount of wine we tried throughout the day.
We head off to Cape Town tomorrow where we are spending 3 days with our friends before joining the tour again and continuing up to Johannesburg.
