One of my favourite day tours is the very popular Peninsula Tour which has the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve as its highlight. I never rush through this magnificent reserve, but prefer an in-depth visit, exploring every side road, several of the beaches on both sides, the flora, and of course a search for the wild animals that live there peacefully. A highlight of the day is lunch at the very popular and scenic Two Oceans Restaurant overlooking False Bay. I often take a photo on the restaurant terrace, of the same view towards the mountains. Over the years this has resulted in a collection of the same view taken on many different days in different weather and seasons. Here are a few of them.
And then in March 2020 came Covid-19 and lockdown. All parks, reserves and public gardens were shut for several months and I missed my trips down to Cape Point. I was finally able to go there in October when the parks opened again and it was absolutely glorious to be there although I did wish I was with clients earning a living and showing it off to visitors. Many people consider the Cape of Good Hope as a mythical place and that’s certainly how it has felt for me recently.
