Cape Town Palms Guesthouse - Milnerton
Cape Town Palms at 16 Elgin Road, Milnerton, Cape Town The owner BRIAN SHORCK is a cheater and all of his advertises is a fraud. The apartment is nothing like the pictures and it’s dirty, smelly and totally SUCKS. The owner offers you something but by the time you are there, he gives you something else. If you have any objections he runs away with the keys. Don’t get in his trick with his photos and advertisements and DO NOT PAY HIM A SINGLE CENT CAUSE YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!

Cape Town Table Mountain
The best views of Cape Town and its surroundings offers the Table Mountain. You can get there by a cable car. It was opened in 1929 and reconstructed in 1997. The cable car runs from Tafelberg road and costs R130 - around 16 USD(return trip).

What Others say

The South African republic (Dutch: Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek, or ZAR), often informally known as the Transvaal Republic, was an independent Boer-ruled country in southern Africa during the second half of the 19th century. It is not to be confused with the present-day South Africa; rather, it occupied the area later known as the South African province of Transvaal. The ZAR was established in 1852, and was independent from 1856 to 1877, then again from 1881 to 1900 after the First Boer War, in which the Boers regained their independence from the British Empire. In 1900 the ZAR was annexed by the United Kingdom during the Second Boer War although the official surrender of the territory only took place at the end of the war, on 31 May 1902. In 1910 it became the Transvaal Province of the Union of South Africa. The first president of the South African Republic was Marthinus Wessel Pretorius, elected in 1857, son of the famous Voortrekker leader Andries Pretorius, who commanded the Boers to Victory at the Battle of Blood River. The capital was established at Pretoria (founded 1855), though for a brief period Potchefstroom served as the seat of government. The parliament, the Volksraad, had 24 members.

Dutch traders landed at the southern tip of modern day South Africa in 1652 and established a stopover point on the spice route between the Netherlands and the East, founding the city of Cape Town. After the British seized the Cape of Good Hope area in 1806, many of the Dutch settlers (the Boers) trekked north to found their own republics. The discovery of diamonds (1867) and gold (1886) spurred wealth and immigration and intensified the subjugation of the native inhabitants. The Boers resisted British encroachments but were defeated in the Boer War (1899-1902); however, the British and the Afrikaners, as the Boers became known, ruled together under the Union of South Africa. In 1948, the National Party was voted into power and instituted a policy of apartheid - the separate development of the races. The first multi-racial elections in 1994 brought an end to apartheid and ushered in black majority rule.
