Stilbaai and surrounds are the best . All stress starts to lift the moment you take the turn-off from the Garden Route. Driving past Melkhoutfontein around the bend in the road and seeing the mouth of the river is a true home coming experience. Please keep the R1000 and put it towards development in Stilbaai.
