I took this photo from the top of the Pepper Club Hotel in Cape Town as the sun was setting, casting a bright yellow glow on Table Mountain. The hotel sure has amazing 360 degree views of the city, Table Mountain and Table Bay.
I was at the Hout Bay waterfront near Cape Town on a walking tour with Andulela when I saw a group of fishermen unload their catch of the day. As I stepped up to take a closer look, a large seal jumped out of the water and ‘stole’ one of the fish lying on the dock. The resulting mayhem was a hilarious sight.
South Africa has one of the largest collections of rock art in the world with close to 20,000 sites scattered throughout various provinces. The rock art was painted on cave walls or mountain slopes by the San Bushmen and depict scenes of wanderers, hunters and animals as well as tribal rituals. The largest collection of San rock sites, dating from thousands of years ago, can be found in the Drakensberg region. Smaller sites can also be found in the Cederberg region (where the pictures below were taken) just north of Cape Town.
