July through September, 2015

After Sabi Sabi, we parted ways with the others and began our own tour, starting with 5 days in Cape Town. There was a beautiful view of Table Mountain out our hotel window at the Victoria and Alfred Hotel. The mountain is often covered with its own cloud, called the Table Cloth, even when skies are clear. We finally made it to the top (via cable car) on the last day of our stay, all other days being either too cloudy or too windy for it to open. Our tour included Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned), Kirstenbosch Gardens, the Cape of Good Hope, and the Stellenbosch wine region.
