February 15, 2012 – On the second day of our Garden Route tour, after a very pleasant stay at the 88 Baron van Reede Guesthouse in Oudtshoorn, we visited Cango Caves and then drove our rental Honda Jazz across the Swartzberg pass on the unpaved Route 328 to Prince Albert. Lunch at the Prickly Pear was "okay", after which took the "long cut" via R407 through De Rust back to Oudtshoorn and then on to the The Dune Guest Lodge in Wilderness.

This was by far the most "lux" accommodation of our month in Africa. Our room overlooked the Indian Ocean, with a walkway down to the beach. We enjoyed the sound of the pounding surf both nights. Next stop: Knysna.
