This is from my second day down there. Our guide "Boogie Steve" was about to take us all around Cape Peninsula, but decided to show us Bo-Kaap, a neighborhood with colourful houses, and Signal Hill first. The latter is a wonderful hill left of the city bowl. I especially like the lack of trees. Nothing is blocking my view! To the left you can see the city centre and to the left you can see Table Mountain (the flat one) and Devil's Peak. All these buildings are part of the city bowl defined by the mountains, including Signal Hill. This panorama is a stitch of 3 photos.
I recommend taking the taxi if you're heading up here, but check out Bo-Kaap first, it's worth it! And for Table Mountain I'd recommend taking the cableway up and hike back down Platteklip Gorge. I know it seems impossible that there's a trail on the facade there, but there actually is!

A pity we missed a chance to overlap on Sunday. We've been enjoying Bergen.
My son (also on TE) goes to Cape Town for work sometimes but he doesn't get much chance to take photos so good to see this photo.
This is a great clear panorama with excellent details. Well done.

Thanks for adding the large version of this beautiful photo to let us fully appreciate it.
Well chosen panoramic format enabled you to include long stretch of the city from the skyscrapers on the left to what I think must be suburbs with smaller houses to the right. The fascinating mountain is the icing on the cake topped with just the right amount of clear blue sky. And I just love the mist hanging over the centre of the city
Ps. Thank you for looking at my gallery and your very kind comments!
