Hout Bay panorama – Flickr pic of the day
Hout Bay, with its picturesque harbour, is a popular tourist destination in the Mother City. It’s incredibly popular among the locals too: Hout Bay residents are so passionate about where they live, there is a secession movement from the Mother City – look out for the tongue-in-cheek “Republic of Hout Bay” bumper stickers on locals’ cars.
The whole family is guaranteed to have a good time here as it’s filled with interesting activities. One of the great places to visit is the World of Birds, which has more than 3 000 birds in its dozens of aviaries as well as some other small animals – make sure you visit the walk-in monkey jungle, for example.
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
