1. Uniondale, Western Cape, South Africa
If you are ever in South Africa and want to have a ghostly encounter whilst on your way to do some exquisite wine tasting in the Western Cape, be sure to drive on the road that passes through the small town of Uniondale.
The story goes that a young and recently engaged couple was driving on the road to Uniondale during a thunderous storm on Easter Weekend in 1968. Marie Charlotte Roux’s fiancé was driving the Volkswagen and while she was sleeping in the back of the vehicle, he lost control of the car; it slid off the road and overturned, killing Marie Charlotte instantly.
It is said that to this day if you drive in that specific area in which the unfortunate event occurred, you are sure to have another passenger matching Marie’s description sitting in the back seat of your vehicle, feel a pair of arms around your waist if you are on a motorcycle or even hear faint laughter around you. Nevertheless, don’t fret – Marie will soon realize that you are not heading in her direction and after a few kilometers she will disappear.
