Cape Town is considered the mother city of South Africa, nestling on the slopes of the world famous Table Mountain. It lies between the looming crags of the Mountain and the deep blue sea of Table Bay. The city and its surroundings are blessed with an abundance of natural beauty, including the bulk of the indigenous plants of the Cape floral kingdom. It is further blessed with a mild Mediterranean climate.
