Cape Town

Cape Town, the second-most populous city in South Africa and the legislative capital of the country, is probably one of the wettest spots of the continent in May. Take it into account when you plan your trip. With rain comes fog and with fog come closures of Table Mountain – one of well-known landmarks. BUT – rain did not stop us from spending two wonderful evenings and enjoying one morning surfing in Muizenberg (considered to be the birthplace of surfing in South Africa and subject of thousands of photos thanks to its colourful Victorian bathing boxes), visiting penguins at Boulders Beach, admiring breath-taking views from scenic landform of Cape Point, relishing ostrich meat (yes, we did it) and oysters at V&A Waterfront and taking a beautiful drive through Chapman’s Peak. In case you’re not as determined as we were, there are plenty of wine tasting possibilities in the area that will provide both shelter from rain and bliss for your taste buds.
