To walk around among these cute wild animals is a unique experience that I don't think you will experience again soon. You will find this beach near the small village Simon's Town† It's a funny sight that the humans and the black-footed penguins live side by side here. It can even happen that you see a penguin walking through the streets.

Colored houses Bo-Kaap

As soon as you walk through it, there is an immediate atmosphere and the same goes for the cute neighborhood of Bo-Kaap.

Climb Table Mountain during your vacation to Cape Town

De Mesa, one of the nicest and most special places in Cape Town. For the fanatics and adventurers among us, it is recommended to climb Table Mountain. It is also possible to go up by cable car, but if you have done a good hike first, the feeling you get when seeing the view will be even more exuberant and will make your Cape Town holiday complete.

If you are in Cape Town, it is definitely a must to visit a roadtrip to the southern part of Cape Town. If you travel to the South, you will arrive at Cape of Good Hope† Here you will again get to know the beautiful nature. The special thing is that you see the landscape change during the trip. One minute you're driving past the rugged rock walls and rugged views and the next you're driving a National Park with vast plains and many boulders. It's definitely worth it!
