Photographer's Note

Large version is available.

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!
