Photo Diary: Cape of Good Hope

Cape of Good Hope in the late afternoon sun.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAI really did enjoy so much driving down to Cape of Good Hope. The landscape is pure magic. Lean back and enjoy the pics. You are most welcome to join me for this visual travel.

Situated at the junction of two of earth’s most contrasting water masses – the cold Benguela current on the West Coast and the warm Agulhas current on the East Coast, the Cape of Good Hope is popularly perceived as the meeting point of the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans.

Geographically, however, the Indian Ocean joins the Atlantic Ocean at Cape Agulhas National Park. The local authority proclaimed the area a nature reserve in 1938 and it was incorporated into the Cape Peninsula National Park in 1998. In 2004 the name changed to Table Mountain National Park. It encompasses 7.750 hectares of rich and varied flora and fauna and its 40 kilometre coastline stretches from Schuster’s Bay in the west to Smitswinkel Bay in the east.

The cliffs at the southern point, towering more than 200 metres above the sea, consist of three clearly defined promontories – Cape of Good Hope, Cape Maclear and Cape Point.
