28th January 2016 South Africa - Safari
We made the right decision to do our bush walk on the previous day. This gave us a lie in until 6.30am. After breakfast we were ready to leave back to Johannesburg via the Panoramic view road. This trail led us to the Blyd River Canyon which is the 3rd largest in the world (1. Grand Canyon USA 2. Fish River Canyon Namibia). It was a long drive back and we arrived in our hotel around 5.0 pm. We spent a relaxed evening in our room and had no ambitions to go outside our hotel. The next morning would be an early start again. Wake up 5.30 am.
We booked this hotel Mercure via Booking.com. The main reason being that it was not only value for money but also had an included airport free transfer. We only paid €58 for the room for two people for the night (breakfast was 150 Rand - €12 per person extra) but the hotel was really good with a protected wall and swimming pool. We felt very comfortable in our well furnished apartment.
