IIt's the last stop on our road-trip and we have arrived at the Cape Town, or as it's commonly known, the Mother City. We're off to V&A's Food Market - a mecca for foodies and home to traders passionate about the fresh, local, organic, artisan and homemade produce they sell. Housed in the Waterfront’s Old Power Station the market is not to be missed. After lunch we head to Bo-Kaap, the most colourful area of Cape Town. Formerly known as the Malay Quarter, is the oldest residential area in Cape Town, famed for its brilliantly coloured houses and cobbled streets!
