As usual, a very efficient Frank met us at the airport and transferred us to the luxury Commodore hotel near the V&A Waterfront precinct. We spent the next morning checking out the waterfront and the nearby markets. A guided visit to the spectacular Table Mountain was the afternoon’s activity.
Most of our group found great restaurants to sample the local cuisine for dinner.
The next day we had a scenic trip to the Cape of Good Hope and made the climb to the Cape Point Lighthouse. We lucked out with perfect weather for this trip as it can get pretty wild around this meeting of the Atlantic and Indian oceans.
For our final day in Cape Town, Frank took us to the Stellenbosch district where we got to sample the local wines and were very impressed with the quality … especially the local Pinotage. We also visited the Cheetah Outreach centre and the Raptor Refuge. Afternoon tea at a berry farm capped of a wonderful day.
