Winding my way back to the coast, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Indian Ocean, tourism is in full force, facilitated by an enticingly favorable exchange rate from US dollars to the South African rand. Opportunities abound for extreme outdoor activities, not the least of which include diving with great white sharks, complete with videographer and an edited DVD that includes said tourist and the obligatory hackneyed Toto soundtrack.
As if a divine sign, the setting sun provides a visual reminder for the need to reach my final destination, a proper South African grill, or braai.
*NEW* SCHLEICH BAYALA Ice Elf Yamuna & her Unicorn - RETIRED | eBay
Entering the Aquila Private Game Reserve, I do a quick double take at what looked to be a unicorn, of all things, lying on the ground—which would be entirely plausible given the magical experiences I am enjoying aboard both versions of the Africa Twin. Later, I was told that what I spotted was a gemsbok large antelope with one of its horns missing. I like my version of the story better.
