Guess what? Muizenberg is also named and spelled Muizenburg - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

Muizenberg (Muizenburg), South Africa, is a suburb of Cape Town, around twenty-five kilometers south of the city center. It is very well known as surfers' spot and is very busy on weekends. It has a long, powdery sand beach and is an upmarket retreat for the well-heeled in Cape Town. White sharks are often seen here and there is a shark-watch team on duty to keep swimmers safe. This is mainly a surfers' hangout, though, and they can be seen in dozens on the waves early in the morning.

Muizenberg has a magnificent backdrop. The Table Mountain National Park rises sharply up to the west and there are mountain trails to be discovered. There has been a settlement here for more than three hundred fifty years; one of the oldest buildings in Muizenberg is Het Posthuys, the old post house, built in the seventeenth century. Among the other historic buildings in Muizenberg, there is Rhodes Cottage, where Cecil Rhodes died in the early twentieth century, and is preserved as a museum. Casa Labia, now a hotel, and Bailey's Cottage, between the railway line and the beach, were both built within decades of each other in the early twentieth century,

There is a plaque commemorating the small but significant Battle of Muizenberg in the late eighteenth century, when the British began their occupation of the Cape and some of the cannons from this battle can be seen outside the old post house. All of these are on or near the main road going south to St. James. A number of other older buildings can be seen from this road, including quite a few in the Art Deco style.
