Great dinner! Area not too interesting. The drive over the passes (to Prince Albert) was very nice though.

Shut off your phone & internet, and go to amber lagoon! This is a piece of paradise. The garden is beautiful. The owner is really kind. The sunset view from the top of the hill is just amazing. Good to know if you were planning to skype/do bookings/bloging : they don't have wifi there.


If you visit Oudtshoorn you have to stay in Amber Lagoon. It's located 30km outside of the city, but it's a wonderful big area, with a nice garden, great pool and a beautiful sundown. Susanne is very nice and helpful and you can enjoy the day in the garden in the sun. And Susanne is going to help me because I forgot my mobile at her Hostel, thanks! :D
