My Favorite Destination of 2012

Like many aspects of the travel experience, I can’t explain exactly why I love Cape Town so much. The feeling is base, a visceral reaction to the time I spent there.

In the following years Cape Town got a fort (the Castle of Good Hope) as well as the Company Gardens which were established at the foot of Table Mountain.
