In part 3 of our guest post series ¨I Love Cape Town¨ from Craig of YTravelBlog, he shows some of the natural sites in and around Cape Town. The good thing about this city is that you always feel connected to nature and the natural beauty of the city and the Cape. Enjoy!
The impressive backdrop of Table Mountain is just one of the many striking features of Cape Town. This prominent landmark forms part of Table Mountain National Park and you can either hike to the top of the mountain or take the cable car.
Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden
Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is recognized as one of the best botanic gardens of the world. Its position against the eastern slopes of Cape Town’s Table Mountain makes for sheer grandeur, and you may even feel in the mood for a hike up one of the many trails to the top of Table Mountain.
Kirstenbosch was also the setting for my brother-in-law’s wedding ceremony which provided a magnificent backdrop.
Lions head is a part of the Table Mountain National Park and forms part of a dramatic backdrop to the city. It reaches a peak of 669 meters and there’s an hour-long walk to the top which is known for spectacular views over the city and the beaches below.
