Thanks Bouf and Skillie. We would do the waterwall trail again and again and again. We would have missed something in not doing that lovely trail. However, my trip report is not yet finished.
After leaving our penguin friends at Boulders we straight drove to the Table Mountain NP to visit Cape Point. Howeverer, shortly after entering the gate we realized that this one day is much too short for this lovely Park as you can leave your car on several points and do some hiking. We decided to drive first to Cape Point in order not to be overrun by the crowd of people especially by the tour busses and then to explore all the other nice corners in this park. When we arrived at Cape Point around 10.00 o'clock not some much visitors there. We had a lovely walk to the lighthouse and enjoyed the views down to the sea and to some hidden beaches..
Also we found this little friend.
Our second visit we paid at Cape of the Good Hope and as we already expected the crowd is already on the run. The Park became fuller and fuller. We strolled a bit around and found these lovely rocks covered with hundred of these seagulls and also some cormorants were present as well..
We then drove to all other corners of this park and there we had the park on our own. No cars at Buffelsbaai, at the Black rocks etc. It seemed that everyone just wanted to see Cape Point and Cape of the Good Hope
We also were able to find some animals. We saw zebras, ostriches, baboons and also some bonteboks.
In the afternoon heat (again) we decided that we must do a hike and we parked our car at Olifantsbos and walked down the beach to Olifantsbos Point shipwreck. Also a wonderful hike and not that strenuous as in Tsitsikamma as we did not have to climb over rocks. On the parking ground we met again our Austrian friends from the Tsitiskamma NP. They asked us whether we can take them back to the entrance as they parked their car there. They wanted to do the whole park by hiking but realized on half way that this was not possible.
In the late afternoon we left this park together with the Austrians and spend the 2 last nights of our first South African trip in Cape Town. As hubbie had not enough from hiking he climbed the next day also the table mountain (I did the much more comfortable version and took the cableway due to the heat). We spend half the day on top of Cape town with really lovely views.
After we enjoyed our last dinner of this trip we drove up to lions head and did some nice pics of Cape Town and Table Mountain by night. I seems that we were not the only ones who had this idea as Lions head was filled with people from all over the world.
Good night everybody and thanks for all your nice comments and also for your views at this trip report. I will start soon under a new topic and trip report about our 15th day's visit to Kruger, as we found that these 3 days we spend there during this trip where much too short.
