Town is South Africa’s No. 1 tourist destination and its easy to
see why - It is in Africa, and of Africa, but yet so different.
Perched between the ocean and the mountain, and with a national
park as its heart, it's wild and wonderful. But it's also the
oldest city in our country, and it has a cultural heritage
spanning more than 300 years.
It also has the top five national attractions in South Africa
that should appear on every visitor's itinerary all year round.
Don't miss a visit up Table Mountain; the V&A Waterfront, a
unique shopping and holiday experience on a scenic working
Robben Island, the former home of Nelson Mandela; the Cape Town
Wine Routes, where some of the world's best wines are produced
and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, internationally acclaimed as
one of the great botanical gardens of the world.
Cape Town is one
of the most popular long haul destinations in the world
It is in Cape Town that the Rainbow Nation really covers the
spectrum. Between beautiful Cape Dutch homesteads, traditional
dancers with painted faces performing in the streets, the smell
of spicy Malay cooking and the taste of a well-made wine, this
city will fill your senses.
You will never be bored in Cape Town. Table Mountain offers some
of the best climbing in the world, and its right here in the
city. The surfing is fantastic; the diving is cold but good.
You could go mountain biking, or go sea kayaking - you may see
whales or penguins. If the wind is right, you could fly off
Lion's Head with a qualified tandem paraglider pilot, and land
on the beach in time for sundowners. You'll never be bored.
