Clouds and rainbows – A Cape Town Tourism Photo Essay

My pictures were taken while hiking to Tartarus Cave above Boyes Drive. It was a spectacular walk because of the clouds and a rainbow. As we arrived at different lookout points on the mountain, the views over False Bay and Simon’s Town changed.

We started the hike at 110 Boyes Drive at the Ou Kraal signpost and walked up Bailey’s Kloof. It was during this part of the hike that I got treated to stunning views over Muizenberg and False Bay – the clouds were awesome.

When we got to the top and walked in the direction of the amphitheatre, a rainbow suddenly became visible. We explored the cave for a bit and when we came out, the rainbow was still there.

As we walked on and our angles changed, we eventually saw the whole rainbow. We then walked down through Spes Bona and back onto Boyes Drive.
