What a wonderful name for an incredible city! Read the glowing account of myAustrian Fans Dani and Bine with lots of pictures and tipps for your next trip to Cape Town.


Table Mountain looms majestically over the city. No matter how often I have seen it in movies or travel guides: I have made hundereds of pictures regardless. There is a special allurement coming from Cape Towns landmark.


They have the best Capes in South Africa. The best. The Cape of Good Hope is breathtaking. But: Beware of the baboons! My personal recommendation: Less sportive people should take the train at Cape Point, especially if it is hot.



A tour with the sightseeing busses and lunch at the waterfront convince us: We love Cape Town! As it was raining – this happens quite regularly in Cape Town, so pack your raincoat – we visited the Bo-Kaap Museum and the District 6 Museum.



And when the sun is out? A helicopter flight over Cape Town shows this impressive city once more from a whole other point of view. Make sure you are back on the ground just in time for a sundowner on Signal Hill – the perfect ending for a day full of incredible views.



Cape Town and its surrounding area is a great place for gourmets: You can buy a ticket for the City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off Bus that includes a Wine Tour in Constantia. We toured the vineyard Groot Constantia … a lucky strike! 



Coming from Tyrol, of course I had to visit Bacon on Bree. Maybe more than once … but who could resist eating this breakfast? I am sure: No bacon lover would have the heart to say „no“ to this (and who isn’t a bacon lover?)



Next up: A road trip along to the Garden Route to Addo Elephant National Park. How grand! The self-drive safari leads over gravel paths and potholes, and after the second turn, there they were: ELEPHANTS! Also zebras, buffalos, kudus … and baby elephants!



With the full on big panorama view we say goodbye to Cape Town – but we promise: Mother City, we will be back! Who is coming along?
