Goodbye Shamwari - Hallo Knysna
This morning was our last 5am start and our last game drive. It was time for us to say “Goodbye Shamwari – Hallo Knysna”. Sicla was on a mission to find me more elephants – not too difficult to track with the large prints their feet make. They are rather like huge marshmallows!
On our last day at Shamwari, we saw a giant African snail, giraffes necking and – LOTS of elephants.
Sicla did a sport of weeding – prickly plants are alien plants here and they are worried about them spreading.
We were collected by a driver from Pembury Tours and dropped off at Port Elizabeth Airport to pick up a hire car for the last week of our trip.
It took us 5 hours to drive to Knysna (pronounced Nize-na). We were very conscious of speed cameras all the way – there is zero tolerance on the speed limits here.
Learning the Lingo
Robots – traffic lights
Bleed me dries – mobile phones
Trust me, you really DO NOT want to get as close as we did to a farting elephant.
