Mini vs Maxi Tour - Adrenalin most of the way

Day two continued.

No visit to Cape St Francis is complete without a visit to the lighthouse.

After breakfast, Frank from the Cape St Francis Resort took us on a cruise around the canals and proved to be a very congenial companion and competent skipper as he regaled us with many facts and stories.

It was then time for the BUNGEE organised by Face adrenalin at the Bloukrans Bridge. It's a loooong way down.

It's almost like there are two worlds that do not know what the other is doing.

Taking the plunge

Now if that was not enough, we headed for Tsitsikamma Canopy Tours, to zip line between the trees....high above the ground. What does strike you is that jumping off high places is not one of man's natural inclinations. But it is fun.

Our guides, Chris and Tarky (Tarquin) kept us in stitches with their brand of what I call "forest humour." Here we see Lindile coming in for a smooth landing.

Irma and Chris, Tsitsikamma Village Inn, our hosts for the evening have really pulled out the stops. Their hospitality is really tremendous and adds to the warmth of the place.

Dinner at the Hunters Restaurant was superb. I settled on the venison pie and Lindile and Songezo the rump steaks.

I like the zoom shot of the bridge, you are so right, there are 2 seperate worlds that have no idea of the other, on top you glide quitly over the bridge admiring the views but not being close enough to the edge to see how deep the gorge is, totally unaware that under the bridge there is a party atmoshphere, loud music pumping and all the action going on!

A day of high adventure for the three of you ending at a fantastic hotel in one of the most beautiful parts of this province in the company of fantastic hosts.

On an Alaska cruise my husband did the zip lines while I took a guided photo hike. I would more likely do the zip than the bungee, though.
