World Trip 2006: Day 22 – De Hoop Nature Reserve to Cape Point to Cape Town, South Africa

Wednesday 19 April 2006
Highlights: Sand Dune fun, Cape Point (meeting point for Indian & Atlantic Oceans)

We started the day with lots of fun on the sand dunes in De Hoop Nature Reserve.   This only proved that some of us are still big kids.   I even run down the dunes at one point and just managed not to fall down head first.

We continued on the Whale Route and came across some beautiful coastline.   Eventually we came to Cape Point the exact point that the Indian & Atlantic Oceans meet and the southernmost point of this country.   I can tell you that the water is very cold around this area despite the good weather.

On the way into Cape Town we also come across a shanty town like Joh-burg however this one had electricity running into it legally so it appears things are better here.
