Photography-wise, keep in mind that the best views of Lion’s Head and Cape Town are in the morning and the best views of the mountains are in the afternoon.
Table Mountain is free to visit, but tickets on the cableway cost 240/125 rand (.50/.50) round-trip/one-way.
Truth is the rare place that does both extremely well.
I have to give a shout-out to my reader Joshua for giving me this idea.
Trivia or pub quizzes are a great way to delve into the local culture, and Cape Town is no exception.
This was a great place to spend an afternoon, and on my next visit to Cape Town, I hope to stay in Camps Bay.And when we touched down, we celebrated with a champagne toast. Ask the staff if you’re not sure which time is best.I highly recommend looking at the forecast and booking your flight for the best weather day possible. You’ll be shooting through glass, so wear dark colors and shoot slightly downward rather than straight ahead to avoid glare.The V&A Waterfront is what you’d get if you combined Boston’s Faneuil Hall Marketplace, San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, and Chicago’s Navy Pier.
You can shop for anything, enjoy a variety of restaurants, ride the Ferris Wheel, visit the aquarium, take pictures of Table Mountain if the weather is cooperating, visit museums, jump on a harbor cruise, and get some gorgeous sunset views.
I can’t believe it took me three trips to get to Camps Bay — it’s now my favorite neighborhood in Cape Town!
