Hout Bay, Cape Town
As part of a tour we stopped at Here, on the Western Cape. The drive in was beautiful with hillside to one side and the Hout Bay township to the other.
We had a Seal boat tour booked, we went out on the boat not far out but to a few little islands which was full of seals. I was pleasantly surprised how close up we got to them, so good to see so well. We could see them playing and lying around was a great treat to see.
On the outskirts is the Imizamo Yethu township, a shanty town housing up to 33,000 people.
Hout Bay (Afrikaans: Houtbaai, meaning “Wood Bay”) is a suburb of Cape Town, South Africa situated in a valley on the Atlantic seaboard of the Cape Peninsula, twenty kilometres south of the Central Business District of Cape Town. The name “Hout Bay” can refer to the town, the bay on which it is situated, or the entire valley.
The area was originally made up of two farms, which were slowly subdivided to make way for urban expansion. While still maintaining its rural atmosphere, the area of Hout Bay has more than 5,960 residences inhabited by a population of at least 17,900 people (as of 2011)
So how did we see it? We did a guided tour, which we found was great. The guides were highly knowledgeable and because of this would highly recommend this company below, it’s so worth doing it right. They also had some goods deals incorporating the Cape Point and penguins tours.https://www.citysightseeing.co.za/en/cape-town/cape-point-penguin-explorer-tour
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to have a look, there will be plenty more to come. But for now it’s goodbye, so maybe enjoy a few other posts.
