Cape Town is an amazing place to visit. You have a beautiful city, that lies below magnificent mountains. Table mountain has a great cable car that takes you to the top were the views are spectacular. From the top you can walk and discover all the it has to offer. Cape Town has lots to offer for all tastes. The boat trip to Robin Island was one of the highlites for me. We also went on a sail boat that departs from the Waterfront and just sails out for about two hours.
Unfortunately William had far too much to drink on the boat, but we still had a great time.
The beaches around are for just lazy days, and the water can be cold but with the perfect weather, it’s a well worth freezing your assets, to cool down.
Cape Point is well worth the drive, were you can see the two oceans met. The vast expanse of openness, and the truly beautiful surrounding make this a great holiday destination. Hotels cater for all budgets, and we did stay a couple of nights in a great hotel in an area asked Canal Walk. They have a huge huge shopping mall, and with the constant changing climate, we did find some great shops.
All we needed was a good map, and a car hire and each day discovered different places to visits. Cape Town has some great wine estates to visit, and some of the worlds top restaurants. It’s a very laid back city, and has received some bad press, however you must be vigilant about your own security and belongings. From Cape Town you can do many days trips, but I recommend taking a road trip along the coast, the Garden Route take you east and you head along some speculator scenery and can stop along the way. We did stop off in Plettenberg bay, and spend a couple days just soaking up the sun and doing very little. Ivan
