A Geographical Overview of South Africa: Day 4 of the Theory Course
While I loathed History at school, I loved Geography so I really looked forward to this day of learning. The sea, mountains, rivers all have a wonderful fascination for me.
Table Mountain is the first thing that usually comes to mind when you hear Cape Town mentioned. This 1km sandstone mountain that stretches for almost 3kms, with its flat top and frequent tablecloth of cloud dominate the city.
It is quite difficult to get lost in Cape Town as you always have an ocean on one side and the mountain on the other. This makes traffic quite a nightmare but you can’t have everything and Capetonians are very possessive and proud of their city.
