Day 6 - Prince Albert

Morning drive to this charming and un-spoilt town in the Little Karoo.

Meet the team over a light lunch before a tour of an olive press along with an olive oil tasting; an encounter with the towns favorite doctor-cum vegetable grower to pick some produce; a visit to a dairy for tasting of award-winning cheeses; a village ramble with a historian and story teller and a truly welcoming dinner.
