Perched between the ocean and the mountain, with a national park as its heart, there is nowhere like Cape Town. Cape Town, the “Mother City”, is the oldest city in South Africa and has a cultural heritage spanning more than 300 years. Cape Town is one of South Africa’s most cosmopolitan and vibrant cities.
A city blessed with natural beauty, Cape Town is a diverse and fascinating city. From the heights of Table Mountain to the dramatic stretches of coastline, Cape Town’s wonderful weather year-round makes it a popular destination for both beach and wine lovers.
Its world-famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Green Point Park compliment these natural blessings wonderfully. The nearby Boulders Penguin Colony is also a popular spot due to its cute but loud penguins.
A proudly multicultural city with a blend of architectural, musical, and culinary styles. The colourful neighbourhood of Bo-Kaap perhaps best epitomizes this, but the city’s diverse roots can be seen in every bar, restaurant, and boutique. Elsewhere, museums such as the South African Jewish Museum and the District Six Museum offer more quantifiable insights.
Day trips from Cape Town include visits to the world-renowned wine regions such as Stellenbosch, whale-watching from the shoreline at Hermanus, experiencing the stark beauty of Clifton Beaches, and exploring the wonders of the Garden Route – one of South Africa’s most picturesque drives.
