A couple of weeks ago Keenan and I really needed a little break, so we decided to book somewhere nice for the night. I visited Cape Agulhas once, a few years ago and it really captured my imagination. Not only is it the most Southern tip of Africa, but it’s one of the most beautiful places you could imagine. I’ve been wanting to go back ever since.
We booked a night at the SANParks Rest Camp in the Agulhas National Park. The drive out that way was bright yellow with canola blossoms and I made Keenan stop loads of times to take pictures. It was such a beautiful drive. It was also the first time since the end of summer that we felt like maybe spring was in the air.
The SANParks camp we stayed at is right at the Southernmost Tip of Africa. It’s super beautiful and the cottage we stayed in was very cute, with a view across the fynbos to the Atlantic. The best part about the trip was that we had some time to chill out together.
It was only one night but man, was it nice to get away. Unfortunately, by the next day the weather was back to its normal old winter behaviour. Leaving Agulhas, we stopped at the Struisbaai harbour, where you can normally spot the local stingrays – but not this time.
On the way back, we decided to take a detour through Hermanus, where we stopped for lunch and a spot of whale watching.
Flip, it was so nice.
