South Africa: Cape Town Day 4

Monday morning we started the day with a little coffee stop at the famous Truth Coffee Shop in Cape Town. Very cool, very tasty. Definitely worth a stop.

Next we headed out to drive down the coastline of the peninsula to Cape Point. The cost is absolutely breathtaking, each turn offering views more beautiful than the last.

Cape Point is a nature preserve at the tip of the peninsula that you can drive through down to the very tip, the Cape of Good Hope which is the Southwestern most point of the African continent.

We also went by the famous Cape Point lighthouse and “hiked” to the top!

And this is why we did the trip from Brazil vs the US.

After Cape Point, we headed out to have lunch at the Harbour House in Kalk Bay for, yet again, more delicious food and amazing views.

Our table was right beside the windows which would often get soaked by the waves – it almost felt like you were on a boat!

Fun spot!

Great spot!

Cheers!

After lunch we went to Simon’s Town to see the penguins! So awesome!
