Cape Town

Located on the shores of Table Bay, Cape Town, is the oldest urban area in South Arica, originally developed by the Dutch East India Company as a stop off for Dutch ships sailing around the “horn” of Africa and onto India and the Far East. The imposing flat topped Table Mountain dominates the city skyline, and slowly rotating cable cars climb to the top providing travelers with breathtaking views across the city and busy harbor, with boats heading for Robben island, the notorious prison that once housed Nelson Mandela, but is now a living museum. TheV&A Waterfront is a chic shopping and entertainment district that includes the Two Oceans Aquarium. Historic sites include the Dutch-built, 17th century Castle of Good Hope. City beaches range from ritzy Clifton to Boulders, where there’s a penguin colony. Popular out-of-town trips take in Chapman's Peak Drive, with coastal views, and the Cape of Good Hope. A diverse city with something for everyone.

The V&A Waterfront

This working harbour is a prime shopping destination for tourists and locals alike. With plenty of retail options, visitors can easily spend hours exploring fashion, housewares, jewellery, leather goods, and souvenirs before sitting down for a meal at one of the many restaurants and cafes. End the day with a sunset cruise around the harbour or explore the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa.

Attractions

  • Nature at Table Mountain

    Surrounded by a national park filled with ostriches, baboons, and endangered flora and fauna, this mountainous plateau gives visitors a captivating panorama of Cape Town surrounded by the area’s natural beauty. Ascend to the top by cable car and marvel as the city shrinks and the mountain rises into view. For adventurers, hiking routes wind through the area, crossing gorges, ravines, and valleys.

  • Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

    Start your journey in a paradise dedicated to South Africa’s native flora. Nestled at the base of Table Mountain, these gardens were the first in the world to champion indigenous plant life. Along with proteas and fynbos, the site exhibits sculptures by local and international artists. It’s also the perfect place to start a hike up the mountain, with paths through forests and Skeleton Gorge.

  • Reflect at Robben Island

    A prison for centuries, the island has housed political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela who was imprisoned here for 18 years. Now this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a memorial to the struggle against apartheid and a living museum with many former prisoners offering guided tours. Visitors can also explore the island’s newest incarnation as a nature reserve for African and blackfoot penguins.
