Umfalozi and Lesotho!

Honeymoon home

South Africa 1

Our last week was spent in Durban on the beach. We traded the 110 in for a Rocsta, which looks like a cross between a Jeep and a Geo Tracker, and drives even worse. It was a huge let down after the 110, but it was also a lot cheaper to rent.
Our first destination was Umfalozi, a game park on the Natal coast. We only spent a day in the park, but got to see rhino which we had not seen elsewhere.

We also spent one day exploring the eastern portion of Lesotho. The goal had been to go over Sani Pass and then on to Roma where Graham was born. Unfortunately, mainly due to weather, we had to skip Roma, but had a good time exploring anyway.

For a 4 week honeymoon we had a great time. We covered 3000 miles, mostly off-road, in the Defender and had a great time. After the trip Connie gave the green light for preparations for the London to Cape Town trip in 2004!
