  • Beaches

    Cape Town Favorites

    I cannot say that I am a world traveler by any means. However, a person would have to go far to visit a more beautiful city than Cape Town. It has everything a person could possibly want. The beaches are wonderful, the sand so soft in many. On the Atlantic Ocean side, the water is cold and the opposite can be said of the Indian Ocean side. I would...

  • Kirstenbosch Gardens

    Cape Town Favorites

    One of the spectacular features of Kirstenbosch Garden is its location. Cape Town's Table Top Mountain creates a magnificent background for the beautiful garden of colorful flowers. Hikers can also enjoy the Garden as three forest trails have been laid out within the boarders of Kirstenbosch. The Stinkwood Trail only takes 45 minutes to hike...

  • Tours

    Cape Town Favorites

    It's not often that you need a tour guide in cities that you know well, but on my last trip to Cape Town, I came across Allan Korsman of Blue Monkey Tours, who lead the tour that I joined at Groote Schuur's Heart of Cape Town museum. He helps out occasionally at the museum, but more commonly guides tours which he customises to meet his clients'...

  • V & A Waterfront

    Cape Town Favorites

    There are several good spots to go shopping. Whether you choose to stroll through a fleamarket or around a modern department store, there are many possibilities to satisfy your need. The Victoria Wharf is a shopper's paradise with something for everyone. The shops stay open 'till late each night. Outside, you'll find many pubs and restaurants....

  • Table Mountain

    Cape Town Favorites

    The decision was made: we are walking down. Today I am not sure if it was the right thing to do - we didn't know the way, we had no map or guide, we had no idea what to expect. By the way, one shouldn't underestimate the Table Moubtain - although it is only 1078 metres high, it can be really dangerous, especially because of the weather that can...

  • Cape Point

    Cape Town Favorites

    This one day trip around the Cape Peninsula was the best day of our visit to Cape Town. We are grateful to our wonderful guide and great companion for the day - a VT member Mariana known as Mvtouring. Here is a short report from the trip. In the morning Mariana picks us up from our meeting place and we set off on our trip full of doubts because of...

This is SA ! Cape Town has so lot to offer - and it was my first contact with this country - but not the last. First impression is different - but contact with...

  • My other mother

    My other 'mother' is the 'mother city' of Cape Town. I was born in Cape Town, moved to Johannesburg when a toddler, and moved back when I turned 22. I lived here until I came to live and work in London in 2002.The Cape is one of those places that grips you. One naturally longs for one's home, but this peninsula has something extra-special to offer...

  • Historical interest

    The Cape Peninsula was once two islands separated by the Fish Hoek (Silvermine) Valley which was then a passage for the sea. During the Ice Age the waters receded and were replaced by shifting sand dunes blown in by the very strong south-easterly winds (these are still really strong today!). In modern times alien plants were introduced into the...

  • Aloes

    This plant is typical of the entire Western Cape region. It is cactus-like in looks, and has orangey red flowers when in bloom.It is hardy and succulent, in a land where the toughest only often survive.Having said that, this particular area of the Little Karoo is like a little oasis, where the earth is kinder on the vegetation.These aloes pepper...

  • Architecture in the region

    Many buildings in town and city centres in this region are national monuments, beautifully preserved.I always take time to walk along the streets, visiting the second hand furniture shops and the art galleries, sitting down for some coffee at the local coffee shop or having some fish and chips at the harbours.The first photo of lattice work on a...
