Devil's Peak. The adventurous soul within me was completely satisfied with the picturesque vistas of Table Mountain and the City Bowl that I saw from Signal Hill. What's more, I visited a few beaches in the area, ranging from Clifton 4th beach to Boulders Beach. I highly recommend visiting the beaches because the water in South Africa is uncommonly warm! Some other things I did in Cape Town was visit the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, take pictures of city hall, and take a day to go wine tasting in the Cape Winelands.

African Safari | Guided Vacations After enjoying Cape Town, I decided to indulge myself in a very typical touristy activity in Africa- I went on a safari. My guide informed me that safari meant 'to journey' in Swahili and I thought that was very beautiful. I travelled to Kruger National Park in South Africa (which claims to have the highest diversity of wildlife in Africa). I will, say this, of the 'Big 5' I saw elephants, a rhinoceros, lions, and buffalo. No leopards for me! Still, the experience was unparalleled. Seeing the animals in a natural setting, away from the cages and fences of zoos made me think of a more peaceful and organic period of our world's history. I truly felt that I was one with the earth. My final destination in Africa took me by plane to the northern point of the continent- to Egypt. I knew that I would be unable to discover all the Egyptian history I had read about in books in one day (in so little time!), so I decided to go to my very favourite place- Alexandria. The city was known to me because of its historical ties with Cleopatra. I wasn't disappointed. The seamless miscegenation of Egyptian, Greek, and Roman culture made it one of the most unique places I could have imagined. I visited the Kom ash-Shuqqafa Roman burial site, saw the Alexandria library, and marveled at Pompey's Pillar.
