... So we decided to go to a Penguin beach and Cape of Good Hope (which is the southern most point of Africa.) We were in the van for 12 hours that day...oh yeah it was a longggg day! but it ended up being really nice I can't complain! We literallly got to hangout with penguins on the beach (not as cute and nuzzly as they may seem!) and being at the southern point of Africa was an unreal moment. Shhh i crawled past the barrier to go as far out as I could! it ...
... spin around the center of the city we moved on to drive down the east coast of the cape.
We drove/visited Hout Bay, Chapman's Peak Drive, some coastal towns with lots of nice beaches, Cape Point, Constantia, the Ostrich farm, the place with lots of African penguins, through Table Mountain National Park, and the Kirstenbosch Gardens. We drove down the eastern coast on a narrow road, which was hilly and windy. The most amazing part of it all was seeing how ...

... It was great to be driving again. First stop was to head south and visit Cape Point. We drove down through some of the small towns and drove the amazing Chapman’s Peak road before stopping at Boulders beach to see some penguins that live there. Then we carried on down to the point itself and did a walk up to the lighthouse up the very top for some views of the ocean. Afterwards it was a few hours drive up to Stellenbosch which was to be our base for two nights.
