Three wonderful warm nights in beautifully designed chalet with wood burning cast iron stove, while we watched the winter storm flowing over the high mountains. Nestled in the middle of the Cape Floristic Kingdom of Kleinmond we were lucky enough to manage two walks in nature. One along the Palmiet River which although damaged by recent fires is still magnificent.

Our second hike was quite hectic, following the steep Oudebos River valley through fynbos and amazing indigenous old forest towards the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens outside Betty’s Bay.
