As we approached our destination last Wednesday morning I had this magnificient view from the window by my seat. We were on the right side of the plane and this was the side with the view of Table Mountain. Cape Town was everything that I had expected it to be.
After unpacking and freshening up we went off to the Mount Nelson Hotel for afternoon tea. The next day we went to Robben Island, where we did a coach tour of the island followed by a tour of the prison by an ex convict and of course we saw Nelson Mandela's tiny cell. The following day we visited the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, which unfortunately was not at its best as it is late Summer/early Autumn here now. On our final day we took the cable car up Table Mountain and enjoyed the amazing view from there.
We have now moved on from Cape Town and are heading along the Garden Route.
