Cape Town

I will start my first South Africa’s photoblog with my recent visit to one of its oldest city, with cultural heritage spanning more than 300 years, Cape Town. This vibrant city is perched between the mountain and the ocean; there is no chance to be bored in Cape Town.It is in Cape Town that the rainbow nation really covers the spectrum, between  beautiful Cape Dutch homesteads, traditional dancers with painted faces, the smell of Malay cooking and the taste of a well-made wine, this city has filled all my senses. It is well deserved nicknamed as “Mother City”.Cape Town also known for its magnificent Table Mountain, which offer a scenic photographic background of the city, Lion’s head and a far view of Robben Island, the former home of Nelson Mandela and several other political prisoners who fought against the apartheid government. Table Mountain is not just known for its highest peak of 1,086 m above sea level and breathtaking views, but for being a great habitant for variety of plant species only endemic to this mountain.I would like to thank my good friend Reshma Sonecha for being a wonderful travelling companion and for all the unforgettable moments we had. Last but not least, I would like to thank our brilliant tour guide and friend, Jakes Sampson, for making our South Africa trip an exceptional experience and for being patient with me taking lots of photographs!EnjoyJ

Once again you have demonstrated your subject (the beauty of places) in S. Africa by showing some of its historical legacy contained therein. Please continue to keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing other sites on your blog.

The Table Mountain shot is unique. I particularly like the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden bridge. Thanks for sharing these breath taking shots Jena. Wish you happy travels and enjoyable photography.
