Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town, bottom right, near the Cape of Good Hope, is the second most populous city in South Africa. It is the legislative capital of South Africa, where the National Parliament and many government offices are located.
Cape Town, located on the shore of Table Bay, is famous for its harbour. The city centre is located at the northern end of the Cape Peninsula. The peninsula consists of a dramatic mountainous spine jutting southwards into the Atlantic Ocean, ending at Cape Point.
There are over 70 peaks above 1,000 feet within Cape Town’s official city limits, including Table Mountain. This peak forms a dramatic backdrop to the city bowl, with its plateau over 1,000 m (3,300 ft) high.
The Cape Peninsula has a Mediterranean climate with well-defined seasons. The bay on its southern side is called Saldanha Bay.
