2018 Grand World Voyage, Day 90, Cape Town, South Africa

Not to leave any stone unturned in South Africa, Ann, Cathy and I arranged an all day tour of Cape Town and Cape Point. Leaving the cruise ship terminal in route to Table Mountain we climbed the hills of Cape Town City passing through the Malay/Bo-Kaap area with the painted houses. Since the day was clear, we took the cable car to the top of Table Mountain for the views of the city...Leaving Table Mountain we headed south to Cape Point along the spectacular Atlantic coastline of the Peninsula past Clifton and Camps Bay, the Twelve Apostles, Chapmans Peak Drive through the charming historic villages stopping at Hout Bay before reaching Cape Point. We took the Flying Dutchman funicular to the upper lighthouse and then climbed up to take in the spectacular views. Next, we made it to the south western most point of the African continent, the Cape of Good Hope. On our return to Cape Town via Simon’s Town we stopped at Boulders Bay. Boulders Bay nestled in a small cove between Simon’s Town and Cape Point is home to a thriving colony of African Penguins...the penguins wander freely in a protected area. We passed Simon’s Town famous for its historic building and Naval Base, Fish Hoek, Kale Bay with a quick stop in Muizenberg to see the painted bath houses along the beach. The weather was spectacular With a terrific Guide Granwell or the “Big G”....anyone needing a tour around Cape Town and surrounding areas can contact him at;
