Even though I technically live in the town next door, I’ve always been proud to call Cape Town my home. It’s modern, yet has a complicated history, multi-cultural, yet open and inviting for all. It goes by many names; Die Kaap, Die Stad, Die Stad Kaapstad, The Cape, Cape Town, Cape of Good Hope and so forth, but no matter how much the city and its people change, the beautiful places, both natural and man made never will (as long as we’re there to protect it).
Below is 19 of the most beautiful place in Cape Town.
1. The Wharf
3. Lion’s Head
