MiCiti to Waterfront Video Tour

 

MiCiti Bus Cape Town

The MiCiti Bus has been a major hit in Cape Town as far as Public Transport goes. We decided to use the bus instead of drive across town, but Tamara needed a bus card first, as it was her first time. You can use the MiCiti Bus as a self guided tour bus if you like… check out our little trip across Cape Town to get to the Two Oceans Aquarium. The myciti bus is also free upto Table Mountain from the civic centre in Cape Town city centre.

Guided tour around Kirstenbosch Gardens

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden

We picked a rainy day to do some “family time” and headed out to explore some iconic spots on the south side of Cape Town. Accompanied by Dean’s cousin from Colorado and her bestie from North Carolina, we ventured towards the beautiful Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden.

The gardens are an important landmark for Cape Town as they put on an extraordinarily rich and diverse display of indigenous flora. The Cape Floral Kingdom is impressively unique as it covers the smallest area of land in comparison to the other floral kingdoms by far, but at the same time has the highest diversity of plant species by far. The Fynbos families make up for 80% of the Cape Floral Kingdom (there are about 8500 species of Fynbos) and 6000 of these are endemic to the area surrounding Cape Town. Fynbos means fine bush as it describes the thin leaves synonymous with the Fynbos species. There are so many fascinating facts about these plants, but we think it may be best that you come through and learn about it while you are here.

On entering the nature reserve, bordering Table Mountain National Park, we aimed our attention towards the Boomslang Tree Canopy Walk.
The dramatic clouds and views made it quite easy to admire this magnificent World Heritage Site.
We continued through open fields and dense foliage, discovering Proteas, cycads and the forest of centurions.
We climbed through trees and inhaled the wondrous scents in the herb garden… Regardless of rain, this is a must do if you plan on visiting Cape Town on holiday.
There are many breathtaking and engaging activities that you can find on your journey through the micro and macrocosm of the Botanical Gardens. Take your first step!

The next part of the day took us further south towards Kalk Bay.
We abandoned the car at St James, on account of a bit of road-works traffic, and walked the rest of the way.
There is a cool walk way between the railway line and the sea.
Our destination was the Brass Bell for fish and chips and a beer, the best way to catch up with family whilst overlooking the sea, with the Kalk bay harbor on the right, the Kalk bay surfers an the left and the Kalk Bay lighthouse under a beautiful rainbow dead ahead. All in all a fantastic day.
