Arrived Cape Town 18 June to start a significant African adventure covering Namibia, Botswana, Uganda and Zanzibar.

Staying in a very cute restored farmhouse in the middle of the city which has been restored by a French couple who have created a traditional French provincial experience. Hotel is called La Grenadine Petit Hotel.

First couple of days exploring included a stroll through the Bo-Kaap district with distinct coloured house of the cape malay people, a city walking tour and then a visit to the oldest vineyard of Groot Constantia.

Our next day was a day of understanding more about apartheid, forced removals such as District 6 and the history of Robben Island.

A day of starting at the Saturday markets , followed by a visit to the super impressive Zeitz art Museum and ending at Kirstenbosch gardens where they spent 50 years eradicating all the plant life that did not fit. Impressive vision and stunning gardens and backdrop.

Perfect day for a tour of the Cape in our rented car. Very easy place to drive so off we set for the most stunning coast and mountain scenery.

Sunset on Signal Head very spectacular.

And a few more shots from Signal Hill.

Our final day was out around Stellenbosch visiting a couple of wineries of Muratie and Lazenac and then driving the spectacular Franshoek Pass.
