The dinner was a typical India Style dinner 🍽. The food was just so delicious and even the presentation was amazing 🤩.

This was all for the day. The next day we had some amazing plans to enjoy wandering around in such a happening destination.

We got up in the morning, got freshened up, and proceeded for the breakfast. The breakfast was served on the ground floor, it was a nice lavish continental breakfast 🥞 with lots of varieties to choose from. After a yummy delicious breakfast, we got into our cab 🚕. Our plan was to visit the very famous Table Mountains.
