Kirstenbosch & Chapman’s Peak (Cape Town 6)

Our last day in Cape Town 😦 (before moving on to safari), but also the hottest day we’d had. It was a little more of a relaxing morning before heading off to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens for a walk.

Kirstenbosch is in the foothills of Table Mountain, so it is pretty spectacular scenery as you walk around. But it is quite hilly in there! It was 30 degrees the day we went and we went in the morning and we got really hot walking around!

Unfortunately it was the wrong time of year really to see all the flowers, but it was a lovely day and still a really nice walk. It makes our local botanical gardens look a bit rubbish!

From Kirstenbosch we headed out to a place called Chapman’s Peak, which is a scenic drive along a coastal road. It was really spectacular views again from here!

After Chapman’s Peak it was still quite early in the day and we had quite a long time left, so we decided to head back down to the V&A Waterfront where we went on our first day in Cape Town. We wandered around the gift shops a bit more before going to get some dinner.

After dinner we headed back to the hotel to begin the task of packing to move on to safari 🙂
