A Different View of Cape Town

Cape Town is a thriving multicultural community with architecture, food, and culture that reflects its diverse peoples past and present. Considered one of he world’s most beautiful cities, it is surrounded by the spectacular scenery of Table Mountain, False Bay, the Cape of Good Hope, and the famed wine region that is dotted with Dutch farmhouses and vineyards of incredible beauty. Also, outside the city, surfing rules the nearby beaches and further out wildlife ranges from African penguins at Boulders Beach to gazelles, zebras, lions and elephants on nearby nature reserves. There is no other place like this special spot on the southernmost tip of Africa.

Iconic view of Cape Town’s Table Mountain as seen from our cruise ship. 

On our two previous trips to Cape Town, we had emphasized the areas within the city and the drive down to the Cape of Good Hope to see the penguins. This visit we wanted to see the “other side” of Cape Town so our agenda was very different.

In this blog posting we shall show you the pictures along the beautiful Chapman’s Peak drive beside the Atlantic Ocean, Hout Bay, the resort areas of Camps Bay, Clifton, and posh Sea Point. 

In our next posting, you will get an introduction to the life in the Imizamo Yethu township, which was designed for 450 families but now houses over 34,000 people. We know you will find it interesting.
