Days 4 & 5 Cape Town

27 Dec

We flew to Cape Town on Kulula Airways!! Arriving at my nephews home in Hout Bay in time for a lovely Christmas  dinner. Ending the evening with some very nice Schnapps.
Today we spent well over 4 hours at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden – one of the best gardens we´ve ever been too. Plants beyond amazing, laid out in a very consumable way; enjoyable to see so many local visitors picnicing and really enjoying a local treasure.
Later in the day we did a panoramic drive heading south of Hout Bay to Cape Point, the most southern point on the African continent. Along the way we stopped in Boulders to see the the vulnerable African Penguin. We saw young ones molting, pairs trading places to sit on their two eggs (only one usually survives), grooming (themselves and each other) and mating.  http://www.aboutcapetown.com/penguins.htm
