CAPE TOWN is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain.
Cape Town is the oldest city in South Africa, colloquially named the Mother City.
It is the legislative capital of South Africa and primate city of the Western Cape.

Now new rotating cable cars climb to the mountain’s flat top, from which there are sweeping views of the city, the busy harbor and boats heading for Robben Island, the notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela, which is now a living museum.

Boulders Beach is a sheltered beach made up of inlets between granite boulders, from which the name originated. It is located in the Cape Peninsula, near Simon's Town towards Cape Point. It is also commonly known as Boulders Bay. Our family has spent many a holiday swimming here, they a wooden raft anchored in the bay, to swim out too.
