Take a walk on the wild side! while kirstenbosch gardens is great all year round, i particularly love the gardens in summertime when they have a concert every sunday and @thegalileo open air cinema every wednesday. but even so, i love coming here to explore & take pictures, or just have a picnic & a nap under the trees. how are you going to be spending your lazy sunday? photo by: @jessthecreative
@jessthecreative is running our weekend takeover and will be sharing a selection of images of the western cape and cape town! tag your shots with #capetownmag to be featured.
Back in chicago but still have 🇿🇦 on my mind. i had poor internet connectivity over there so i’ll slowly post safari pics now that i’m back. @thd611 and i saw this zebra and bird h ing on our early morning drive through addo. i like to think they’re kissing in this pic 😘. zebras are such beautiful, photogenic animals but let their prettiness fool you: they’re vicious.

South africa 🇿🇦 day 2!
all the way up...
hiked 3558ft (200floors) to the top of table mountain, this a 3km plateau overlooking the city of cape town and officially one of the 7th wonders of nature... i thought crossfit and hiking the fjords in norway was intense... try climbing the cliffs of platteklip gorge, we dared and almost regretted it halfway... this is seriously the craziest hike i have done, shouldn’t even call it a hike, it was more like ‘rock climbing’ in the clouds with no equipment nor guide. have to admit the views were breathtaking, well the little sections we managed to see when we didn’t have a blanket of fog covering us. legend says the sudden dense fog attributes a smoking contest between the devil and a local pirate called van hunks. when the table cloth is seen, it symbolizes the contest. hmmm🤔i certainly did not know we were walking into a war contest!!!! after 2 hours, 22 breaks along the way and getting lost in the fog we finally conquered 💪🏽 all the way to the top!
had to take the cableway down, 200 floors up is enough workout for a day... can gladly scratch one wonder of the 7 wonders of nature out ✅

And he walked all night long
until he was stopped by the shore of the ocean
but still he walked on, amongst the whales
and the waves, and screamed
and his wooden body floated away
he just drifted away
and now i wonder how i was made
now i wonder how i was made
my arms, my legs, my heart, my face
my name is driftwood
