Botanical Safari update

The planning is going well. We have our plane tickets and a deposit on the Namibia leg of out trip. We finally got a chance to sit down and do some more planning on Saturday. We tackled the Northern Cape or Namaqualand portion of the trip.

First off, we have our two nights at Bushmans Kloof. This is our luxury blowout of the trip. It just happens that we will be there on the night of our 30th anniversary so this is the major splurge of the trip. (As if the airlines tickets were not a slurge??!!) Next we move up to Namaqualand and we are staying three nights in Springbok. We have a reservation at Mountain View Guest House. Unfortunately, they were booked on Saturday, so I spent some tonight looking for fill in accomodations. We hope to stay 4 nights in this area and also day a long day trip to Richtersveld National Park on the border of Namibia. But first we need to get our accomodations.

After Springbok, we are moving back south towards Capetown. We have booked three nights in Papkuilsfontein Farm. Their self-catering cottages were booked so we will stay in the guesthouse. This area sounds very interesting. This area is a transition area between the fynbos and karoo. It is near Nieuwoudtville which is the indigenous bulb capitol of the world. We are also going to take a tour of Glenlyon Farm by Niel McGregor.

I am getting so excited.
