Dominated by the iconic Table Mountain and flanked by beautiful beaches, Cape Town is also home to the vibrant Victoria & Albert waterfront, the enchanting Kirstenbosch Botanic Garden and colourful, picturesque Bo-Kaap, once known as the Malay Quarter.
Furthermore, the warm, friendly people of Cape Town really make this city a standout destination. Cape Town’s rich heritage is derived from a melting pot of San, Afrikaner, Dutch, British, French, Cape Malay and South Asian cultures, reflected in the delicious cuisine, the handsome architecture and the lively music scene found throughout the Mother City. The city is also blessed with a fantastic Mediterranean climate – sunny, dry and warm in summer, and moderately cold and wet in winter.
There are a plethora of things to do here. Hike or take the cable car to the summit of Table Mountain for sweeping views over Cape Town. Visit Robben Island and walk the cobblestone streets of Bo-Kaap for an insight into the city’s past. Meet local communities while touring informal settlements around town or see the point where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet.
