Back to Africa, Part 3
Updated: Apr 22, 2022
Have you read the first 2 parts of the "Back to Africa" blog? Please do, then you should read this one about Cape Town.
There was one part of the trip I was not looking forward to, that was the flight from the Hoedspruit Airport. Why? Because the plane had a single engine and only 9 seats. You could not stand up straight in the plane. But, this flight ended up being the smoothest ride of them all. We arrived at the Kruger Mpumalanga Airport to board the next flight to Cape Town, our last stop in South Africa. Our accommodations were at the V & A Waterfront Apartments, the four bedroom apartment had views of Table Mountain and the marina. We were fortunate to have Mimi join us in Cape Town. The photo was taken at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, (l to r) Me, Eddis, Mimi, Marilyn, and Rosalyn.
