A rugged mountainous coastline divides a cool Antarctic sea current on the west with a warm Mozambique current on the east. The whole landscape is wild. Whales, dolphins, orca, seals, penguins and sharks abound the sea while the land hosts the famous cape floral kingdom, dotted with animals such as ostrich, bontebok, zebra, baboons, tortoises and snakes.
The picture above shows Smitswinkel Bay. A small community of off-grid houses just outside the Cape Point gate. Below left is a blooming sugarbush common to indigenous flora. Below right is an ostrich in full stride.
