LuseeyahI had no idea penguins live in SA. It is worth the visit seeing so many penguins laying on the beach sand catching a tan. The beach walk was a bit crowded making it a bit harder for us to enjoy the views from all sides. We also had the opportunity to swim and chill with the penguins at the beach. This is a total instagramable location

The spiralling form of this South African garden cafe draws inspiration from two sources: the ‘Matjieshuis’ (Mat House) of the San, who first inhabited the Western Cap, as well as the first dwellings of the Dutch settlers, ‘KapHuis’ (Truss House), a cultural hybrid. Matjieshuis were portable, curved, slat-framed structure covered with woven mats, used by San herders as they migrated seasonally with their cattle during precolonial and early colonial times. Meanwhile, KapHuis consisted of A-frame trusses covered with thatch, their interiors lowered to allow for more headroom. Both structures were part of this historical landscape and blended subtly with their surroundings. Now, in the garden context, the ‘mounds’ of the new structures have an uncanny resemblance to the nearby surrounding hills and their intricate, trellis-like extensions further integrate the buildings with the landscape.

Our Strand beach is my Home and Work each day, There is a lovely wide promenade to walk in the winter and in the summer it is awesome to take off your flipflops and soak in the sea, have an early morning refreshing walk. To get ready for your day in this beautiful place, to be able to witness some of the most spectacular and special sunrises and sunsets is a privilege. I am truly blessed.
It was worth the experience despite the motion sickness🤕😂 #champagnesunsetcruise #v&awaterfront #charters ⛴ #capetownmothercity
the best holiday attraction in the whole continent of Africa - Cape Town, South Africa. It’s been refreshing #travelingsolo
This is a gem of a place between Cape Town and Hermanus. There are loads of hiking trails around, and beautiful botanical gardens to explore. You can get very close to a colony of penguins.
