Best Cape Town Photo Tour
Undoubtedly one of earth’s most beautifully situated cities Cape Town wins travel accolade after travel accolade and for good reason! But photographically is where Cape Town really stands out with world class landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes and even wildlife. With 2 World heritage sights (Robben Island & Cape Floral Kingdom) plus one Wonder of the World, Table Mountain. You think that would be enough but add in the Majesty of the Cape Point, the African Penguins, the beauty of Kirstenbosch Gardens, the splendour of Chapmans Peak drive, the culture of the townships, the colourful neighbourhood of the Bokaap and the sheer beauty of mountains on oceans and you have something truly unique.
What You Can Expect Weather Wise: Cape Town has a Mediterranean-style climate; dry, warm summers & wet and cool winters. However the surrounding mountains create micro-climates and weather can vary considerably one side of the mountain versus the other, for example the south east slopes receive 4x more rain than the drier north east ones.
