We stop at the Stony Point Penguin Colony to see the African Penguin followed by the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens for a walk up to the waterfall at the top of the gardens. Next stop is Hermanus (Southern Right Whale Capital of South Africa). After some lunch with wine tasting and whale viewing we make our way to Cape Agulhas (Southern most tip of Africa), passing through the rolling wheat fields and the small quiet villages of Elim, Napier and Bredasdorp. (Approx 290km).

We turn off the N2, through Suurbraak and over the Tradouws Pass. Lunch stop is at Mike Clarkes 'Clarke of the Karoo' for the best lamb chops around.
