In Cape Town, we resided at the Rockhaven hotel, located pretty much out of town at Bloubergstrand. From this beach, all those postcard pictures of Cape Town's landmark, Table Mountain, are taken. Left of Table Mountain you can see 669 m high Lions Head. The top of Table Mountain can be reached conveniently by using the new Table Mountain Rotair cable railway which was finished in 1997. This miracle of technology has a round passenger cabin which rotates during the trip so everybody can have a look into every direction. A Return Ticket was priced 55 Rand in 1997.
