We chose to go by bus, so that we could both see everything well. The round trip is about 160 km. Nice day, the guide took the people on a walk for those who felt like it. Very nice walk, so highly recommended! For the people who could not or did not want to go on the walk, the bus drove to the pick up point.

There is a hurricane on the (mountain) hike to Cape Point (lighthouse). No bag, nothing to take with you: I tore my baseball cap out of my camera pocket - blowin by the wind .... The monkeys along the way are so aggressive that they tear what you think is food out of your hand. If you don't have anything with you, that can't happen - and the hurricane with strength 13 plus you won't blow anything away. I have never had to hold my phone with both hands anywhere!

A great, entertaining and informative ride. Very friendly staff. Especially our moderator, Mr John Brahm, was simply amazing. He had an eye for the animals in the wild and informed us in a very humorous way about the area with all its historical, geological and other important facts and did not forget to tease us a little. We had a day full of joy!
