Day 6 – The Waterfront and Kirstenbosch Garden

On day 6, we went to Cape Town to the V&A Waterfront and Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden. The waterfront was interesting, but a bit commercial. There was a nice craft market though with some good souveneir shops. We also went to a restaurant where I tried a number of different kinds of meat common to South Africa: crocodile, warthog, ostrich, springbok, and kudu.

Kirstenbosch was one of the major highlights of the trip. The views there were incredible. And, we got to sea several families of pheasants wandering around freely.
