Iris, Ruby and Marina took on the Garden Route for an action-packed adventure trip of note. The Girls started off on route to Plett and did the waterfall zipline and elephant interactions before lunch, followed by a relax session on the beach at Plett, and a sunset hike and drinks on Robberg Island. The following morning the three went Seal diving, and later jumped out of an aeroplane at 10,000 ft to parachute over the ocean. We made our way to Mossel Bay and later towards Hermanus, taking in all the various scenery along the way, and obviously doing a bit of wine touring and tastings. Cape Town was next on the list and first off was a visit to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. The following morning we hiked up Table Mountain to meet the abseil crew at the top. The Girls showed incredible grit and determination to abseil a sheer 112 meters down. The views off the cliffs over looking Camps Bay below was spectacular. We later did a visit to the City Center to stroll around Long Street and Green market Square before enjoying sunset drinks at Camps Bay. The following day we had a paragliding session booked off Signal Hill, but unfortunately the wind was blowing the wrong way and launching was impossible. The Girls were a great team and did all the activities in high spirits.
