A bold, vibrant city, it’s famous for its great parties, fantastic shopping experiences and beautiful galleries. Other cultural attractions all add to the Cape’s appeal, making it the perfect holiday destination for all.
Nothing can compare with the Cape’s natural beauty. In fact, Sir Frances Drake once said Cape Point was ‘the fairest cape in all the circumference of the world’. Those from the Cape say that it divides the Indian Ocean from the Atlantic – as if to prove this, a line of foam can often be seen heading from the point, dividing the eastern coastline from the Atlantic Seaboard on the west.
Cape Town is a truly stunning city with spectacular beaches and is home to Table Mountain National Park, which includes Boulders Beach. Here, lucky visitors can enjoy the calm waters right next to a colony of African penguins. Table Mountain is a great escape for hikers and is often used by those from the area as a weekend getaway. There are literally hundreds of walks to be experienced all over this wonderful and varied terrain. Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is famous for hosting wonderful concerts in amongst a showcase of South Africa’s fabulous floral heritage.
It is impossible to be bored in Cape Town with its abundance of things to see and do. The Victoria & Albert Waterfront is a shopaholic’s playground but boasts much more, including boat trips on the Robben Island Ferry. There are many restaurants, historical buildings, museums and exhibitions to be found as well. At the Two Oceans Aquarium, visitors can enjoy a penguin encounter.
The waterfront also houses some of the best and most beautiful Cape Town hotels with some of the best views in the world. There’s an enormous range of adventure activities including watersports, whale-watching, sky diving and abseiling. More daring visitors can try shark cage diving and come face to face with the world’s most fearsome predator, the great white shark.
