After our safari in Sabi Sands, we flew to Cape Town which is the second largest city in South Africa. It is the legislative capital of South Africa. As a tourist, Cape Town felt much safer than Johannesburg, and has an European feel to it. The layout of Cape Town somehow reminded me of Hong Kong with the harbour and mountain behind it, and the beach area on the other side of the mountain with the more affluent residential neighborhoods.
We stayed at the Cape Royale Hotel in Cape Town which is an all-suite hotel. We spent a relaxing few days visiting Table Mountain, wandering around the V&A Waterfront, and visiting the beach area. We also went to the wine country in Franschhoek in the heart of the Cape Winelands. On the way, we stopped at the Cheetah Outreach to visit some of their cheetahs. We also drove along the Garden Route to see the penguins at Boulder’s Beach and continued to Cape Point.
