As the crowd gathered at the V&A Waterfront at 6 pm last night, we all wondered what we had gotten ourselves into. As the bikes motored up the collective energy could be felt and excitement replaced trepidation. It was like we instantly turned into the paparazzi – camera phones out!
Once all jackets, bandanas and helmets had been fit (and ‘enough’ photos had been taken), we headed off on our sunset sightseeing journey #TravelToCapeTown. All documented by live tweets from @Safari365, making the rest of Cape Town jealous. Have a look to see the amazing pics.
We left the waterfront and headed towards Camps Bay along the Atlantic Seaboard. A trail of bikes attracting attention while we waved like royalty and felt like celebrities. The trip was such a fabulous and unique way to see our Mother City! I never imagined that it would be that much fun…and the views! The same scenery that we end up taking for granted illuminated again from a different spectator’s view.
We had a quick stop at Camps Bay Beach – obviously to take more photos – and the chatter amongst ourselves was non-stop. Who saw what; who enjoyed it more; did you wave? Then with a quick signal from our tour guide Tim, we jumped on our bikes and in the sidecars like pros and off we headed to Signal Hill.
The sun was starting to set at this time so the view was just stunning. Watching the paragliders and our fellow Capetonians enjoying the last of the day on the massive tarp, you felt like this IS the best city in the world – a unanimous decision.
Still full of adrenaline and chuffed with how well we handle motorbikes, we stopped at the waterfront and separated into our groups to end our night with a delicious 3-course meal at either Greek Fisherman, City Grill or Meloncino. The service was impeccable and the food exactly what you need to end a great trip.
Well done to the drivers, restaurants and company for such a great evening.
