Wife and Iwalked up the trial to the top of Bessies Kop and nack in qbout 90 minutes. Although hot, it was worth it. Bring own water - no kiosk. Beautiful scenerary of surrounding mountains and varied flora. Really worth the outing.

An opportunity to meet the happily retired locals. Tea and a choice of up to 3 cakes for a bargain of R 20,00 . Easy walks in the indigenous garden.
