Where I stayed
AI Kynaston, Jeffrey's Bay
The lions have fed, Edward tells us. How does he know? Look at the round belly as they sleep unperturbed that we are observing them.
Edward really works hard at showing us the lion for the last time and then finally the two hippos. In the morning, they dont really look menacing and so our morning drive comes to an end. It's breakfast time - more bacon, eggs , toast. We are really been fed .
We say our goodbye to the Algerian family at the reception as we check out
It takes just about 45 minutes drive to Addo National Park. Nothing like any of our Malaysian Park - very well kept and yes extremely easy to just drive and look for the animals. Just follow the crowd. Loads of elephants, ostriches and springboks. Niki got really excited about the black rhino which he spotted from very far, asked permission to drive like a F1 car driver to have a better view. As he is gushing about the black rhino and ignoramus like me just took as many pictures of the rare black rhino( an endangered species) The wow factor only hit me when he told us that a live black rhino can cost Rand 500,000 whilst the white is only half the price. The rhino black horn is very valuable and is worth its weight in gold.
We end the trip with a lunch back at Schotia ( deelicous macaroni and cheese), we say our goodbyes to Edward and start our drive to Jeffrey Bay - the fourth top surfspot in the world known for its supertubes
Its only an hour and a half drive to A1 Kynaston B&B in Jeffrey's Bay and we find Sharon. The weather is not promising . We check in and Sharon goes through with us the drill and tells us we have the entire house to ourselves - yahoo!!!!! and rushes off as the England vs Germany game is about to start. The boys are getting themselves all comfortable in front of the telly. Chung looks out the window and says - the weather is lousy anyway, so I dont think there will be any surfers. So,we will spent our Jeffrey Bay's afternoon in doors.
Germany thrases England 4-1 and a controversial goal from Lampard is disallowed. It's another disappointing showing from England . Rooney is the worst disappointment as he looks as if he is strolling in the park.
We were recommended dinner at this Greek restaurant for their faboulous prawns and it didnt disappoint . Lovely dinner, fabulous white wine at very reasonable price. The trip is really becoming one of the family's best ....
