The Cape Dutch style buildings depict the architectural heritage of the place. Beauty abounds in the black clouds that seem to pay homage to Table Mountain at all times. Cape Point, Signal Hill, Chapman’s Peak Drive, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Robben Island, Rhodes Memorial, and the beaches are some of the famous tourist attractions. Located on the shore of Table Bay, Cape Town is famous for its natural floral kingdom as well as its harbor. This town is one of the most popular tourist attractions of South Africa with its wine tasting day trips, whale watching, and dolphin watching.

Dream Cape Town Best Places visit 2015
1- Cape Point, or the Cape of Storms, is where one can witness the meeting of the warm Agulhas current and the cold Benguela current – on a good day, the water is two distinctly different colours. Drive out to Scarborough to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, pay R75pp entry and head south to the Point. Take the Flying Dutchman funicular (ticket R33) and then clamber up to the historic lighthouse, which offers incredible panoramic views. Open 7am to 5pm daily. 021-780-9010, capepoint.co.za

2- As an alternative to snapping from the summit of Table Mountain, try Lion’s Head next door. The views of the city are just as spectacular, but one also get shots of the Atlantic Seaboard. It’s about a two-hour leisurely hike, with a small section of climbing near the top (there are ladders and chains to assist climbers). Pack a picnic, chill out and wait for the sunset. The most popular outing is when it’s full moon (26 June). The Lion’s Head path starts on Signal Hill Road. Do not walk alone, be prepared for weather changes and take a torch.

 3- The iconic photograph of Table Mountain is best snapped from Blouberg, on the other side of Table Bay. Head from town on the N1, take the turn-off to Paarden Eiland and
keep following the coast until Big Bay, a beautiful beach popular with surfers, windsurfers and kite-surfers. The wind can be unpleasant, but it is the Southeaster (or ‘the Cape Doctor’), after all, that spreads the famous ‘tablecloth’ of cloud over the mountain. On the way back to the city, stop in at the Blue Peter Hotel – upstairs is great for dinner and cocktails, and a nice
day will find locals toasting the setting sun on the grassy bank
out front. 021-554-1956, www.bluepeter.co.za

4- It’s in the Bo-Kaap (the Cape Malay Quarter) on the slopes of Signal Hill that one finds the cute, pastel- coloured houses so instantly recognisable from travel books and postcards. Start in Wale Street and stroll uphill and down side streets. While there, to better understand the
place, visit the Bo-Kaap Museum (10am to 5pm, not Sundays; 021-481-3939, R15 entry) and pop into Atlas Trading (super spice merchant). For the other famous multi-coloured buildings, head to St James or Muizenberg beach in False Bay – home of cute Victorian bathing huts painted in primary colours.

5- The Cape’s baboons are comical, photogenic and none too shy of tourists, but they are also cunning and very dangerous to approach. Animal charity Baboon Matters hosts guided walks to see troops in the mountains near Kommetjie, on the southern Peninsula. See baboons crunching
on pine nuts, swinging up into trees and carrying their babies on their backs. Walks take about two hours, but are not too strenuous. R295 (adults), R140 (children), baboonmatters.org.za.

Slanghoek Mountain Visit
It is the most beautiful area, situated just more than an hours drive from Cape Town, Near Goudini area. More specifically, the closest town is Rawsonville, but it is a gem on it’s own.
There are a number of awesome wineries dotted along the wine valley main road and I will be posting about each place we stopped at throughout the week.

The Slanghoek Mtn Resort has a variety of accommodation options, from luxury tents to guest houses to regular camping facilities, and of course, the new log cabins, in which we stayed. The log cabins are about 4km drive from the main section of the resort and over very rough terrain. Usually you arrive at the resort and then someone will take you to your log cabin in a 4x4 vehicle for the night
