Day 1: Explore Cape Town, V&A Waterfront, Bo Kaap, Table Mountain and Lion’s headMorningBegin your day early so that you have more time to explore the city. The first stop for the day will be V&A Waterfront or Promenade. Morning time is great in this area, the place is not too crowded and you can have a quiet walk or even jog. Enjoy the fresh sea breeze while looking at the various options at breakfast.
After the tour, my host Mike was glad to accompany me on a trek to the famous Table Mountain. We took the Plateklipp Gorge route and it took us a little over an hour to reach the summit. We came down via the Cable Car. And the day ended with Mike and I pub-hopping on Long Street and Bree Street. He was one cool host. Coincidentally, it was Halloween night.
Loved an afternoon hike up Table Mountain to arrive just in time for a perfect sunset. I finished the day with a dinner in the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront Area. The next day I went to see the Robben Island Museum (the most visited monument in S.A.) where Nelson Mandela was held captive for 18 years. A visit to Camps Bay Beach and Clifton Beach on the last day wrapped up my stay in Cape Town. Next stop: Cairo!
