Cape Town, South Africa

We are in the southern most area of the large continent of Africa.  It is the city of Cape Town in the country of South Africa.  For the first time, we are doing an escorted tour where a tour company provides the hotel, tour guide and the day-to-day activities.  Yesterday we went on a tour of the most southern part of this continent, where there was only ocean between us and Antartica.  Here are some pictures of our first encounter with African wildlife, including penguins. Plus a view of the Cape of Good Hope, where early European explorers had to sail around to get from Europe to Asia.
