Cape Town, the mother city of South-Africa, nestles in one of the most dramatic scenic settings of any city on earth, cradled by the imposing bulk of Table Mountain. Vasco de Gama was the first to reach Cape of Good; however, the city was born in 1652, when a Dutch sailor gazed in wonder at Table Mountain, dropped anchor in Table Bay and hoisted the Dutch flag. Soon he had built an earthen - walled fort and planted a vast garden of fruit and vegetables. The new city had begun to grow. Table Mountain, often visible 200 kilometers out to sea, now beckoned like the gigantic sign of a haven shelter from the stormy seas.
