Day 2 South Africa - Cape Town (+2 GMT)

sunny 27 °C

The 11 1/2 hour flight was one of the bumpiest I have ever been on, but in all not a bad journey. We landed on time at 10.30am to hot sun, and the whole arrival process was quick and simple. The airport is undergoing construction at the moment with many football signs and apparently 114 days to something happening :)

The drive to Verona Lodge along the N2 was fine, they drive on the left, very close together and the scenery is a mix of shanty towns, the big blue bay and table mountain. Our place of stay for the next 2 days is situated in Cape Town between Signal Hill and the Waterfront and the host Shane is friendly. We spent the afternoon walking along the seafront and looking into Wine and Safari trips at the V&A Docks area.

Tonight we went up Signal Hill to see the views, and then to a Traditional South African restaurant, Jen had Lamb, I had a sampler dish with Ostrich, Crocodile, Venison, Warthog and Kudu (Antelope). Note to Self: Rob you don't like Crocodile.

We have now planned our week, a trip to Table Mountain tomorrow, wine tasting in Stellenbosch Friday, Sanbona to see wild animals Saturday & Sunday and then down to Cape Point for the rest of our time here.
