Driving the Garden Route
I am in South Africa “working” for Renedian Adventures, and scouting our Garden Route Tour hotels and route so I can speak intelligently about the tour at the upcomiong trade shows. So I started out from Cape Town, and my first stop was a farm stall.
Big business down here, with fruits & veggies, but also souvenirs, knick-knacks, pre-prepared food, and the must-try boutique root beer. I’m crazy about root beer and had to try it!
They were nice enough to tell me what I could expect in terms of recreation going up the pass:
A beautiful day for a drive…

Twisting even further to see more of this amazing view:
Up on the other side it’s wine country:
With lovely rose bushes lining the fences:
Wait, whut? Upon further inspection what’s this?
Ah, got it. Roses decorating Concertina (razor) wire!
