South Africa Day 9: Cape Peninsula

From the Vista Bar & Lounge of the One&Only hotel on the Waterfront:

We began the day with the aerial cable car ride into the clouds to the 1,600 meter peak of Table Mountain and were treated with the spectacular view overlooking Cape Town, Robben Island, and the Atlantic Ocean.

Then we entered Table Mountain National Park and went to the Cape of Good Hope for lunch at Two Oceans Restaurant – and had the Seafood and Meat Antipasti with Warthog and Ostrich.

After lunch we rode the funicular railway to the Cape Point Lighthouse overlooking the Cape of Good Hope.
