I have taken the so-called “long road” to reach Cape Town in South Africa. A circuitous route from Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), I fly northwest to Nairobi (Kenya) and then head back south to Johannesburg, and connect further south to Cape Town. Never mind the 10 hour travel it takes to get here as I have always wanted to visit Cape Town – the oldest city in southern Africa and by far the most cosmopolitan in this country. The Mother City occupies one of the world’s most stunning locations, with the iconic Table Mountain in its centre, surrounded by beaches and vineyards.

Driving through the Cape Peninsula southward takes me from Cape Town to Cape Point. Flanked by the Atlantic Ocean on the west and False Bay on the east, the coastline has quaint villages, sandy beaches, and seaside resorts.
