A Travellerspoint blog

Day 3 South Africa - Cape Town (+2 GMT)

sunny 28 °C

Today was a walk up Table Mountain, we drove there though you can just get the sightseeing bus. We chose to not walk along the road at the bottom which meant it took about 3 hours (advertised as 2hrs). The walk was great, if steep in places and hot! Plenty of photos of the views to come. We met Liz a Canadian girl (IT girl working in Botswana, taking a few extra days holiday in Cape Town) who we had breakfast with us in the Lodge this morning, and joined her on the cable car down. If anyone comes here the walk is fun, but hard work and would probably take about 60-90 mins from the road if you are reasonably fit. The cable car was very good - the floor slowly rotates enabling evryone to get a good view.
Spent the rest of the afternoon down at Camps Bay on the beach, white sands, freezing cold water and locals trying to sell the usual tat.
Not sure on tonights plan as yet, to Stellenbosch for wine tasting tomorrow.

Am dead jealous already! Good idea with the blog. Did one myself a couple of year ago that I still look at every now and then. Looking forward to all the photos and tomorrow's exciting installment!

Blimey, that looks like quite a change from grey old England.

Rob, did you forget to pack your hair? Pictures look awesome. It snowed today back here and I had to cycle home in sleet. That isn't fun if you were wondering, and I am in no way jealous

I have just realised that I have to approve comments before they get put up. I was wondering why nothing was showing up but i was getting emails about them.

Andy - I spent a while watching some folks climb the side of Table Mountain. A huge drop. I didn't forget my hair it was eaten by a rampaging giraffe
