Fun and adventure in Plett and the Cedarberg

In the latter part of 2013 we embarked on two excursions.
Our fi rst trip was to the world renowned Cango caves, then on to Plettenberg Bay to enjoy the
Wilderness area. The scenic route we travelled was something to behold.

The students were wide eyed at the beauty of the South African landscape. Our three night trip also included golf at Plettenberg Bay Golf course, fun at the water slides of Adventure Land and relaxing around evening braais.

December saw our annual year end camping trip. A 30 strong RAGA team of students and adults headed off to the beautiful Cedarberg. The order of the day was swimming in the rock pools, evening braais and laughter around the camp fi re. Let us not forget the mischievous nature of teenagers.

It was a case of “let’s raid the tents and paint faces with toothpaste.”
