Cape Agulhas Mysterious Lady

In front of the lighthouse you'll find this replica of a figurehead (called The Mysterious Lady) of unknown origin. Probably it is from the German ship Elise (sunk 1879) or from the British ship Dundrennan (sunk 1895). Spooky!

Cape Agulhas Lighthouse

As the lighthouse is really nice, I took three more shots of it. Please enjoy!

Lighthouse Cape L'Agulhas

The lighthouse is home to an interesting lighthouse museum [sic!] today, and you can go 71 steps to the top. You'll have an excellent panoramic view from there! There's also a restaurant, which unfortunately closes at 5 pm.

Sunset Cape L'Agulhas

Cape Agulhas lighthouse shortly after sunset.

Elim South Africa

If you have been thinking about a visit to the village of Elim, you might be disappointed. While the houses are indeed historic, there is not much to it, and it takes a bumpy ride over dozens of kilometers of gravel road.


The tarred streets of Elim end at the end of the village. Then you are plunged back to...

Gravel Road South Africa

...gravel roads. Though we did not encounter any other car in that whole area, the government was keen on having a STOP sign. Must have been a joke or something.
