CAPE TOWN, DAY 6

A perfect day in Cape Town. The thing about Cape Town is that the hiking requires such little effort for such an incredible reward. Although I’ve said many times that I’m not a hiker, I could easily do every hike in Cape Town without any questions asked!

Myself and Ruben decided to go up to Lion’s Head again after our last trip was so rushed. Another friend, Vincente from Chile, hadn’t done the hike yet. Therefore, we thought we would show him the ropes, or rather, help carry him up!

WALLY’S CAVE

The view at the top gets better and better. However, one of the reasons we decided to return was to visit Wally’s Cave. Interestingly, Wally’s Cave is just a short walk from the path, where you can get some epic photos looking out to Table Mountain.

PARAGLIDING

After ditching the boys, I headed to Signal Hill for attempt number two of my paragliding. As you know, I enjoy trying new experiences, and Cape Town seems to tick off a million of these.

THE JUMP

Anyway, I got strapped in and made the dreaded run off the edge of the cliff! While it is one thing to jump out of a plane, it’s another to jump off a cliff! Although it is all weather dependent, jumping off Signal Hill takes you over the promenade of Sea Point.

Overall, it was a great experience, but it didn’t quite compare to a skydive or a bungee jump. I can’t wait for my next adventure!

CAMPS BAY

If you want a decent beach in Cape Town, then the options are endless. Since we were staying in Green Point, Ruben and I decided to head over to Camps Bay. First, we checked out the beaches at Clifton before heading to the promenade in Camps Bay for a beer during sunset!

FINAL THOUGHTS

Lion’s Head, Paragliding and a beer during an African sunset, is there any better way to spend your last full day in South Africa?
