Day 2: Cape Town to Bontebok National Park

After a short night (there was a party in the bar of our backpackers, make sure to have some ear plugs with you...) we checked out and drove to Kalkbay to have breakfast with a friend. You'll get a fantastic breakfast at Olympia Deli where I had my best cheese omelet ever.

After being refueled we drove over to Boulders to take some photos of the penguins that live there. There's an area with restricted access which unfortunately had been closed because there were already too many people inside. In that area you can actually take a swim with the penguins. However you'll find penguins outside the restricted area nearby. Just walk across the parking towards the sea.

Then it was time to hit the road. Driving through the wine area of the Western Cape we arrived at Swellendam when it became dark. So we decided to look for a backpacker for the night. Driving through Swellendam we read our travel guide telling us Bontebok National Park is nearby including a campsite. Actually a great place to stay. See pics on day 3...

Arriving in the Bontebok National Park we've been received by a group of mountain zebras as well as a group of bonteboks. Shortly after that, a puff adder was crossing our way. Actually we found out that this is a quite poisonous snakes after talking to some people on the campsite.
