Table Mountain is the most iconic landmark in South Africa, the most photographed of the city’s many attractions. But Cape Town has so much more to offer. Don’t miss the magnificent Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the buzz of the city behind for a few hours; an extraordinary 70% of the flowers here are endemic to region. Then travel out to Boulders Beach where penguin abound - a truly unique sight in Africa!
While many of the cities finest hotels are located along the historic Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, the quieter suburbs towards the foot of Table Mountain and along the Peninsula are also home to a collection of delightful boutique properties. For those who enjoy fine dining Cape Town is a gastronomic delight with a vast collection of world class restaurants showcasing mouth watering cuisine from around the world.
No trip to the ‘Mother City’ would be complete without a visit to Robben Island, the UNESCO World Heritage Site where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated before the fall of Apartheid. You should also take a boat ride around Cape Peninsula, especially if it is during the whale watching season. Truly adventurous travellers can try open sea sailing, shark cage diving, sand-boarding, abseiling, paragliding, and even go snorkelling with the seals. The opportunities are endless.
