Yesterday was my last full day in Cape Town as I fly to Bangkok tonight!
I really wanted to travel south down the peninsula to the most southwestern point in Africa, so I joined a tour to go check it out!
I used the company that does those hop on/hop off tours – they had a specific route for this tour.
We first stopped at Boulders Beach, which is home to the African penguin! It’s pretty neat to see them all over the rocks and in the water. I always thought they needed really cold environments, but I guess not these kinds!
We then continued south to Cape Point, which is part of the Cape Point Nature Reserve and the Table Mountain Nature Reserve. We walked to a lighthouse, which gave incredible views of the ocean and coastline. Supposedly, this is where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet.
The walk was gorgeous but so so windy! A few times I had to stop just because the wind was so strong. There’s a boardwalk path you follow, which winds around the cape and then eventually ends at the infamous sign!
Hope you guys have enjoyed reading about Africa! I saw such a small portion in comparison to the size of the continent, but completely fell in love with the culture and people! Hope I did a good job sharing that with you. 🙂
Stay tuned for my Asia travels!
