Let’s Visit… Cape Town, South Africa

Now I am taking you to my favourite city in all the world!  Let me tell you why with 10 reasons- I could give a 100 easily… :

1. There is Table Mountain, a World Heritage Site:

You know I am a Biker by this photo- your Bike is the focal point on a photo of a World Heritage Site… 🙂

Maybe I should post the Cable car… ehh no, my 2nd Bike is much prettier…

2. There are beautiful beaches like Clifton and Camps Bay:

3. There is the Scenic route around Chapman’s Peak…

5. There is the fantastic “Ons Huisie” Restaurant at Bloubergstrand

6.  Also at Bloubergstrand the place I had my honeymoon so many moons ago: The Blue Peter hotel the best place to be for sunset drinks in Cape Town

8. The Victoria and Albert Waterfront in Cape Town is really touristy… one good reason to visit, also for Mitchell’s Bosun Bitter is the Ferryman’s Tavern

9. Cape Town have some of the most beautiful girls in the world! Like: Roxy Louw:

Kerry McGregor:

Just go visit the Coffee shops beachside at Camps Bay, and you will probably see quite a few international supermodels and actresses . This is also the place to see Top Gear type Sportscars…

10. And finally, the reason I go to Cape Town each year: There is the Argus Cycle Tour each March around Table Mountain- me nd 36 000 other mad people. I have done 19 off them, each one since 1995… cape-argus-cycle-tour

  1. Dis reg, ek gaan juis ‘n ding doen oor die SA Top 100 Wines binnekort (dis nou as ek die kaartjies kan kry om te gaan!). Het darem al vir Bilton, Ormonde en Solms Delta ge-cover in die blog.

  2. Ja, ek het S&T by die huis gesit en huil oor ek in die Kaap is en nie na Bon Jovi toe kon gaan nie. Bitter bly die Biebermania is verby! Wat die wyne aanbetref het ek natuurlik ‘n voordeel in die sin dat ek wyn verkoop, so ek kry dus al die inside info op die “hidden gems”!

  3. Just made me remember why I love my city so much! I’ll agree on all of the points except the brewery (replace with wine, we have THE BEST wine route in the world) and the girls. OK, have to agree about the pretty girls, but that will just be kind of weird, so I will replace girls with the rich culture of Cape Town (like the Minstrel Carnival). Love my Cape Town

    • My favourite wine is Slanghoek Cellars… not in the Cape Town radius… 🙂 Will one day do a visit to the Winelands though- Beyerskloof, Franschhoek’s vineyards, Nederburgh… I think some of the world’s best wines…

      • Ek stem so saam met Nanuschka oor die beste wynroete. Nie net die lekker wyn nie, ook die pragtige wynplase en die ou geskiedenis (soos Muratie buite Stellenbosch). Nog een van my gunstelinge is Waterford (www.waterfordestate.co.za) met die mooiste wynkelder – houtvate in ‘n groot skemer vertrek. Dit voel skoon gewyd daarbinne. Dan Lourensford (http://www.lourensford.co.za/) waar ‘Known gods’ geskiet is. Hier is een van die modernste wynkelders waar alles met gravitasie werk. Indrukwekkend! En Tokara (www.tokara.co.za) met die uitsig oor die vallei en veral hierdie tyd van die jaar as die bome goudgeel teen die hange staan. Ai, Ruiter, as ek eers begin…. Onregverdig! Nou verlang ek erg Kaap toe.
