Day 48,49 Coffee Bay - Port St Alfred - Plettenberg Bay - Cape Town

January 26, 2016
Yesterday afternoon and all night there were heavy rains in the area. And roads are very hilly and muddy here. So we woke up in the morning and headed further not knowing what expects us. Already in first few moment we understood that the roads were in very bad condition. We were slipping and sliding all over the road.
Sometimes the road was just a small path:
Spipery red mud:
After few long hours and short kilometres, we got onto a tar... Car was so muddy you couldn't tell the real colour :D
Beautiful, colourful houses in Transkei:
We drove through a town called Dutywa:
And straight after Dutywa we found nice small gravel road:
And there in  the grass a giant lizard:
Soon we were in town called Butterworth, where we took a small road into the mountains:
The scenery as we drove out of the town:
River full of cows:)
The road was stunning and mountainous:
Wend downwards to cross the rivers with small bridges:
And in the afternoon we arrived to Port St. Alfred:
Beautiful place:
We found a very nice camping place. Had many interesting conversations to the owner:

Day 47 Port St Johns - Coffee Bay

January 25, 2016
From Port St Johns we travelled Transkei and headed to Coffee Bay for the night.
As soon as we turned off the main road, the nice small and sometimes overgrown road appeared:
Transkei is very hilly area, you go up and down all the times, through villages and some random houses here and there:
Traffic jams:
As closer you go to the sea as more beautiful the scenery. Deserted and wild beaches:
Dried ot riverbeds:
And broken bridges:
Here countless rivers rivers flow in to the sea:
And the favourite colour is turquoise:
Small gravel roads and very green:
And lots of water everywhere:
Schools full of kids:
And here we come closer to Coffee Bay:
Beach at coffee bay:
View from our campsite:
This is our camp:
It was quite slanted so we fixed with some rocks: :)
 And crayfish dinner :)
