===== CAPE TOWN – SIGHTSEEING
A range of jagged mountains thrusting into the splendid desolation of the southern Atlantic, the Cape Peninsula is one of the world’s most beautiful places.
Pristine beaches, sheltered bays and secluded coves encircle the majestic might of Table Mountain, a World Heritage Site and home to some 8,500 species of flower. Between the mountain’s looming crags and Table Bay’s deep blue sweep lies South Africa’s Mother City and the cosmopolitan hub of the Western Cape Province – Cape Town.
The best way to revel in the Peninsula’s unrivalled beauty is to travel to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve along one of two coastal drives.
