Cape Town



What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

Safaris all over southern Africa. Driving the Cape peninsula and soaking in the natural beauty. Whale watching in the Overberg. Visiting botanical gardens, such as Kirstenbosch. - Oct 1, 2017
Living in Cape Town is one long highlight. Not enjoying oneself on the weekend is generally a conscious choice. Hiking or playing rugby when it was nice and going to food and wine festivals when it was crummy. The restaurant and food market culture was especially good. - May 13, 2014
The Cape Town area is stunningly beautiful. The sun on the hills, glinting off the old Cape Dutch farmhouses and among the rows and rows of grape vines cannot be adequately described. Even after living here for a year, it still amazes me as I am driving to the grocery store or to pick up the kids from school. - Aug 26, 2013
