Cape Town, South Africa Tour - 2017.

Up this morning at 05:30 am, breakfast, then departing our hotel at 07:30 am, heading towards our final hotel in Cape Town. Once we arrived in Cape Town, we visited Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, spending around one & half hours looking around these beautiful gardens, we all agreed this was not enough time to look at the beauty of these Botanical Gardens. After Kirstenbosch, we went to Table Mountain, once up on top there was some great views over Cape Town to see on this beautiful sunny and clear day. After visiting Table Mountain, it was off to our beautiful hotel for 3 nights, The Southern Sun. We had a free return shuttle to and from the V & A Waterfront, so that night it was out to The V & A, having a good look around, then off for dinner and a few beers before returning to our hotel. An end to another fantastic day.
