Cape Town and its surroundings offer a whole lot of things that are simply awesome. We have some of the oldest mountains in the world, a unique floral kingdom and surrounded by white sand beaches and big oceans.

We are in the suburb of Observatory, Cape Town - below the towering Devil's Peak as it runs down to the Liesbeek River.

The area was named after the Astronomical Observatory which was founded in the 1800s and is to this day one of the worlds leading astronomical research establishments. ”Obs” is also home to Groote Schuur Hospital where the first heart transplant was carried out by Christian Barnard in 1967. There is even a Heart Transplant Museum (www.heartofcapetown.co.za/) to visit.
