A Haunted Ship and a Cable Car to the Top of the World
The Flying Dutchman is one of South Africa’s most famous legends. In 1680, the vessel foundered while trying to round the Cape of Good Hope during bad weather. Captain Hendrik van der Decken swore that even though his ship was sinking, he would make it around the Cape -- even if it took him forever. Through the years, many have reported sighting the lost Flying Dutchman in the murky waters just off the Cape. Poof that the captain has kept his word? You decide.
