The tour is brilliant initiative, launched by the Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism Agency, to promote tourism in the Eastern Cape, during Tourism Month and if it goes well it will become a regular event.
The concept is for the two teams to set off on an adventure tour to different parts of the Province, to enjoy two vastly different experiences in the Eastern Cape. I do not know what is in store for us, but I am really looking forward to the trip - not only for the sheer pleasure of touring the Eastern Cape, but being the designated driver of "the maxi" car.
We will be travelling in a VW Polo sedan, "the mini" and a VW Amarok twin cab, "the maxi" - two really superb cars. Can't wait to get behind the wheel - it will make a change from my tired old bakkie (truck. ute, van for those who are not familiar with south African speak).
Watch this space because when we start our journey I will be giving a blow by blow account of our travels and adventures.
