Before traveling to Africa, I put together several capsule wardrobe graphics to help with my packing. These were created on a now defunct website, Polyvore. Though the site is no longer available, the graphics continue to help me with packing for safari.
Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with the harbor and colonial architecture set against the majestic backdrop of Table Mountain. A visit to South Africa would not be complete without a stay here.
