So after our little mishap with the Lani we ended up in Bloem. I need to recommend three places in Bloem:
1. Land Rover in Bloemfontein did an excellent job and had Lani ready for us all fixed and cleaned. Big thanks to them.
2. Franklin view guesthouse. Wowww what an awesome experience and the hosts Gustav and Marietjie makes the stay really special. Highly remmended. If you want to go and explore Botswana, Gustav is the guy to speak to. Franklin view was awarded best guesthouse in the Bloemfontein region by tripadvisor. (Unfortunately I dont have photos but please visit their website to see more).
3. We also stayed one night at Liedjiesbos. Stunning place and also highly recommended.
While in Bloem we visited the cheetah experience and decided we have not traveled enough and changed our itinerary over a glass of wine. More about that after the photos.
Some pictures taken at Liedjiesbos.
Charmain and I felt very sorry for ourselves since we were cheated out off a portion of our trip. After hearing that Augrabies was in flood we extended our trip and made a detour to ‘the place of big noises’.
More about our awesome stay and some decent photos in the next post.
