Cape Town

Cape Town is one of the world's favourite holiday destinations. With pristine beaches, a buzzing café culture, great restaurants, a working harbour, unique nature reserves and suburban vineyards there is much to enjoy.

If you plan to visit South Africa, chances are you've got Cape Town at the top of your list of places to go. And well you might, the second largest city in South Africa is easily reached from all over the world and the perfect place to start your South African holiday.

Surrounded by Blue Flag beaches, unique nature reserves and award-winning wine farms it's no wonder Cape Town is one of the world's favourite holiday destinations.

Behind the thousand-metre Table Mountain is a series of peaks known as the Twelve Apostles. Arguably more photogenic that its flat-topped sibling, the Apostles chain provides shelter for stray clouds, its gullies sustain an evergreen sheen of life and the whole lot looks out over the azure sea and pure white sands of Camps Bay, Clifton and Llandudno. A Big Sur road winds along the coast circumventing the entire peninsula with a view at every corner.

On the other side of the mountain are the city and the harbour, bristling with semi-busy Capetonians in glamorous repose at strategically-placed streetside cafés.

Further south along the Cape Peninsula you will find some of South Africa's oldest wine farms in scenic vales at the foot of these ever-present mountains; beyond that: more beaches, mountains, forests, nature reserves and a daisy-chain of charming seaside towns.

Some of the popular attractions in Cape Town include:

  • Robben Island - UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Table Mountain (hike up, cable car down if you can) - UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Cape Point Nature Reserve and Boulders Beach penguins
  • Township tours - a surprisingly uplifting experience and an essential companion to Robben Island and a tour of the historical museums and landmarks of Cape Town.
  • Constantia Winelands
  • Atlantic beaches (Bantry Bay, Clifton, Camps Bay, Llandudno)
  • Simon's Town and False Bay beaches (Muizenberg, Fishhoek, Boulder's Beach)
  • Good Hope Castle
  • Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens
  • V&A Waterfront
  • Museums, galleries, shows and markets

A short drive from Cape Town takes you into the Cape Winelands, including the scenic Franschhoek valley, Stellenbosch, Paarl, Robertson… but don't go too far or you'll end up on the Garden Route  and you haven't explored Cape Town yet.
