Hello everybody from around the world. Since the terrible and tragic earthquake in Nepal, we have decided to lengthen our stay in South Africa by 12 days instead of going to Nepal. Fortunately for everyone we were planning to spend time with in Nepal, things are okay – no one is hurt at our trekking company! All the people at the hotel Mandela are safe, and also, the girls’ school where we were going to volunteer. We are so thankful that everyone, including my friend, Seema’s, family is fine, and no one is hurt.
We had a very long plane ride and my Mommy and I got food poisoning when we arrived in Cape Town , via Doha, on Qatar Airlines. Sometimes really unpleasant things happen when you are not in the mood.
Our first adventure in Cape Town was going on the hop-on/hop-off bus. It reminded me of the red double-decker buses in London.
We stopped in different places all over Cape Town. We did this mainly to get the overview of all of Capetown to see ere we where wanted to spend more time — I will tell you about this in future posts!
One place we stopped on the second day of the bus tour was the World of Birds.
Have a look and listen to what this fantastic place is all about on this video:
The world of birds is the largest bird sanctuary in Africa and is one of the top destinations in the world for ornithologists.
It was awesome!
Instead of having the birds in cages, you can walk with them – really walk with them!
Come on it is not every day that you go walking with peacocks, or owls for that matter!
As you can see, this place in Cape Town South Africa is not just for the birds!
It was a big day! Thank goodness we had a great place to stay, right on the beach and our Airbnb hosts were wonderful! More on our hosts in coming posts.
