A Trip to the Southern - most Point of [South] Africa

Picture Postcard Pretty: Cape Town and Table Mountain
I downloaded photos from the Internet to whet my appetite. We have not been to this beautiful city for more than 15 years!

By the time this post appears we will be on our way to Cape Town on the southern-most tip of Africa. We will have left home early this morning and are travelling by car. My husband has two business appointments in the city on Tuesday. We decided to go down earlier, visit friends along the way and also take in some of the beautiful sights of our country. I hope to do some birdwatching in the area.

Cape Town is world famous for its majestic tabletop mountain towering over the bay. Situated on the south-western tip of Africa, Cape Town and the Western Cape is recognised as one of the most beautiful places on earth. Offering a range of attractions, breathtaking sights and endless activities, it is a year-round holiday destination with friendly people, a mild climate and rich cultural heritage.

I will take my camera and photograph scenes on the 1175km/735 mile trip and of course, in Cape Town itself.


  1. What beautiful photos, & what a beautiful city, Jo - in all the years I lived in South Africa I never made it to Cape Town, but hope to do so now sometime that my parents have retired to the Cape !

    Have a wonderful & safe journey, and I'll 'see' you when you get back !

  2. Hi Lynda, I'm BACK. And what a beautiful city Cape Town is. I will be posting about it soon. Well worth visiting when you are next in SA. Hugs Jo
