Capetown is one of my favorite cities in the world. One of the reasons is its natural beauty with stunning geological formations like the Table Mountain and Lion's Head.

Bo-Kaap is the most colourful place I have ever seen. Situated at the foot of Signal Hill in Capetown, South Africa, it is home to the Cape's Muslim Community. Many of its about 6000 residents are descendants of slaves from Malaysia (therefore they are generally known as "Cape-Malay"), Indonesia and different parts of Africa. The slaves were brought by the Dutch in the 16th and 17th century. I have been here two years ago and spent another afternoon in Bo-Kaap during my last stay in Capetown in...

I found a leaflet of Meerkat Adventures during our stay in Oudtshoorn, South Africa. And off we were on the next and very early morning for a sunrise with the meerkat family. It was one of the best tours on animals I did in my whole life! You sit only 5 m away from their barrow and enjoy their morning routine (which is basically getting their belly warmed up by the sun before going off foraging for the rest of the day). After the morning routine you would not be able to find them during the day...
