After lunch at a massive food emporium near at the Y&A Waterfront, the Adventurers headed to Cape Town’s iconic Table Mountain.
On their way, they stopped at Bo Kaap (bottom photo), a street of very colorful houses in a Muslim neighborhood. Strolling up a side street they could see Table Mountain in the distance.
The main feature of Table Mountain is the level plateau approximately two miles from side to side, edged by impressive cliffs. The plateau, flanked by Devil’s Peak to the east and by Lion’s Head to the west, forms a dramatic backdrop to Cape Town.
They made their way up the mountain, then took the aerial tram up to the top of the where they not only enjoyed the view but had a nice hike on one of the hilltop trails out toward Maclear’s Beacon..
It was a long but good day and the Adventurers and their fellow travelers opted for dinner in the hotel’s Leopard Bar. Another busy day ahead tomorrow…
