This vibrant multicultural city is a healthy mix of urban and convenient living, vibey day and night spots, nature and relaxation as well as the ocean and white sand beaches at your fingertips. The “Mother City”, the “Green City”, the “Tavern of the Seas”…whatever name you give it, it stays beautiful and beckons to be explored—the more, the better…
Table Mountain – Take a walk in the clouds on top of Table Mountain, Cape Town’s most famous landmark. More than 26 million people have travelled with the cableway to the top where the sight of the ocean kissing the shore is one of the most incredible experiences in the Mother City.
Robben Island – The offshore island has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is where South Africa’s first democratically elected president, Nelson Mandela, spent 18 years of his 27 year prison sentence. Robben Island is an insight into the past of South Africa, its Apartheid government and one of the greatest men in South African history.
Cape Point Nature Reserve – The reserve is a nature lover’s paradise and covers an area of almost 8 000 hectares featuring rich and varied flora and fauna as well as jagged, dramatic cliffs. Buck, baboons and Cape mountain zebra roam freely in this natural wonderland that is a true gem to explore.
V&A Waterfront – At this prominent Cape Town attraction, old-world charm of a historical harbour meets the glitz and glam of a modern shopping experience. The V&A Waterfront has something for everyone, from fine-dining restaurants to earthy markets and historically prevalent museums.
Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens – Described as the most beautiful garden in Africa, this botanical splendour is set against the eastern slopes of the legendary Table Mountain. The garden proudly showcases an astounding variety of indigenous South African plants and is well known for its balmy summer-night music concerts under a blanket of African stars.
