I met Jesse and Dave at Cape Codogan and from the first minute that we were together I just knew that this tour would be a great success.

 

The weather was in our favour so we started our journey with an ascent of Table Mountain. 
Here we see Jesse and David doing the Table Mountain shuffle. JJ

 

We travelled into the southern suburbs passing Muizenberg and then stopping in Kalk Bay

 

We had a great fish and chips lunch at Kalky's

Great picture at cape Pint just before we made our way back to Cape Town.

 

When we returned to Cape Town we joined Yoshi  (Japanese chef) for a fantastic sashimi dinner tasting all the local fish in Cape Town at Saigon restaurant.

We travelled into Stellenbosch where over a cup of coffee at Cafe Jardine we went through the history of South Africa. After our coffee stop we did a short tour of the town of Stellenbosch before returning to Kayamandi.

 

We stopped in at Lily for a traditional  Xhosa lunch

After our visit to the Ikamva Centre we spent time walking around in the Zone J shack area before leaving Kayamandi and moving onto Franschhoek (Vreugde guesthouse)  where we very unfortunately had to end our great tour. 

 


What an amazing 2 day tour. Jesse and David were definitely go with the flow type visitors to Cape Town and in a very adventurous way and we enjoyed a fabulous experience while in cape Town and its surrounds. We experienced so much and learnt lots from each other. The Meshkovs had a great experience in Cape Town as far as I was concerned and I can but only hope they felt similarly.  All in all for me this was a great tour where I had an awesome time with a fantastic young New York couple.

THANKS FOR THE AMAZING TWO DAYS WE HAD TOGETHER
