We arrive at our new home ... these "Safari tents" are exactly what I like, speaking of tents, a large and beautiful view of the dam, which will become a river over hours.
And there is electricity, we can transfer our photos on our laptops and other hard drives. The rain prevents us again from braaier, and we head back to the restaurant, which is at 2 ... or 3 steps.
Before we went to hide, where no one comes, with the exception of a huge elephant that almost touch us :wink:

A sunset drive :hmz: we have not taken,
1) because of the rain,
2) the price ... the price of a drive in Addo is staggering, almost double the prices in the other parks :shock:

The rain doesn't stop and the wind rises up ... :shock: ... that's an understatement
it rushes through the interstices of the tent, and inflates, the tent, deflates and then re-inflates, even opens the locked door in a crash, in the middle of the night :lol:
I have to find the key in the night ... I don't like :doh:
I put my personal belongings in altitude, tents flooded I know (Uganda), but ... yes there is a but, the plugs are planted in the ground, ground in wood, which gradually gets wet :shock:
I finished, anyway, to sleep and in the morning, the balance is OOPS OOPS, everything is flooded, tent, such as kitchens and toilets :?

Image inside... the day before :lol:

A glance at the pond, oops it is a major river, the water comes from everywhere, it is really impressive.
Image the new river

I take a very brief shower this morning, the feet being anyway "washed" :lol:
Stoics, we take our morning coffee, say goodbye, goodbye Addo, hoping to return under better ... heaven :dance:
And we go through the famous Route 62. And again a few stops ... strange! but that you already know, I think :wink:

Image :cry:

à suivre... the return

Tiny mountain road, where I remain convinced that we can pass two cars and only accessible by a 4x4 with this rain :shock:
I can tell you that I know the small mountain roads with precipices, once one side once the other ... we went as far as possible ... and Michele took the right decision to turn back, find another place where we can be hosted, what we find with the seller of local wine ... the best, but shhh... no advertising :?
A very welcoming Guest House where we spend a great night and take a more than wonderful shower :dance:

Image :yaya:
Image Image Image high way :shock:

And we leave, next step, Cape Town, we have a last look at the path that we took yesterday afternoon before retracing our steps... more exactly our wheels ...
Few stops, I will long remember a few, one where we drank a "Jägermeister" ... in the morning .... a kind of cure :lol: and where I bought a bonnet for the winter, the snow ... and I still have not worn it :doh:
