This day involves panoramic views of the Cape Peninsula with both Atlantic and Indian Ocean in all its glory. The exciting wildlife spotting such a penguins, baboons, ostrich, whales and African “bokkies” make this day an all round adventure.
TABLE MOUNTAIN&LIONS HEAD
If you dare to climb the ladder thats scales the mountain wall during the full moon pilgrimage up Lions Head then your in for wondrous site of the City lights of Cape Town under the glow of the full moon rising.
Table Mountain is done by day as we venture up Skeleton Gorge through the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens or we scale Platteklip Gorge, but either way the panoramic views of Cape Town are out of this world and the Cable Car ride down is a whimsical cherry on top of the day.
CAPE TOWN BEACHES
With two Oceans surrounding Cape Town’s peninsula there are bound to be some beach days. We spend lazy afternoons and wander the elegant street on the pristine Camps Bay Beach or pack our boards, booties and dags for a mission to Llandudno or Noordhoek Beach in time for the sunset and something to eat.
“Table Mountain National Park defines the city. The flat-topped mountain is the headline act, but there are many other equally gorgeous natural landscapes within the park’s extensive boundaries. Cultivated areas, such as the historic Company’s Gardens, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Green Point Park, also make exploring the city a pleasure. Follow the lead of locals by taking full advantage of the abundant outdoor space: learn to surf; go hiking or mountain biking; tandem-paraglide off Lion’s Head; abseil off the top of Table Mountain – just a few of the many activities on offer”
– Simon Richmond, Lonely Planet Cape Town South Africa.
