Cape Town Downdown

Old buildings meet new architecture in downtown Cape Town.

Township Cape Town

Townships - one of the darker topics in South Africa. On your way from the airport to the hotel you will see the huts, located directly at the highway. Given the huge number of poor people, it's a wonder that there are not more problems in South Africa. And if you stick to the advice of the locals, you should not get into trouble at all.

Table Mountain Cableway

The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Co. Ltd. will take you safely to the top.

View on Cape Town

The view on Cape Town from Table Mountain is breathtaking.

Table Mountain Viewpoint

Another view on Cape Town from a viewing platform. You should head for the mountain as soon as you see the sky is clear, because the weather can sometimes change within an hour, and the fantastic experience is gone.

Table Mountain Restaurant

They operate a restaurant on top of Table Mountain, but it was just too cold to sit outside, having dinner and enjoying the sunset. If you go up there, remember that you go from sea level to 1,067 meters height!

Cape Town Sunset

...but when it finally came, clouds where appearing out of nowhere! But nonetheless it was still a wonderful experience!

St. James Bathing Huts

On our third day we explored Cape Peninsula. Our first stop was in Saint James, a sleepy village along the M4. The colored beach huts are popular along the costline.

African Penguin Boulders Beach

In Simon's Town you will find Boulders Beach. It is world famous for the African Penguin, which lives here next to the homes of the settlers. In 1982, the Penguins decided that Simon's Town would be a cool place to live and they stayed there. Today, there 6,000 of them.


The Penguins of Boulders Beach are absolutely friendly, and they do not mind being photographed.

Boulders Beach Penguins

Apparently, the Penguins really like this place, and we can only agree. The Cape Peninsula is one large beautiful spot, and the best is yet to come.
