To settle a few things, we use the internet of the manageress. Stephan invites us into his home in Kalk Bay confirming our proposal to end our holiday over there. At night we put the cards in the mailbox that we have written at the pool that afternoon.

At the end of the afternoon we go to Desolation Valley. We first visit
the Cambedoo National Park. We see hartebeest, steenbok, velvet monkeys, waterbucks, impalas, zebras and ostriches. Through a narrow way up we arrive at the viewpoint of Desolation Valley. The weather deteroriates, with especially the wind growing in force considerably. We decide to skip the round trip, confining ourselves to a visit to the viewpoint.
