Surrounded by nature and alive with the urban beat of Africa, Cape Town is simply one of the best cities in the world. The Table Mountain Range is famous for its diverse flora and fauna, as well as its panoramic views of the ocean. White beaches fringe the landscape, a beautiful contrast of colour from land to sea.
The city and its surrounds offer something for everyone – from hiking to surfing, to art and culture, to history as well as culinary adventures. Shark cave diving and parasailing call for the more adventurous, whereas wine tasting and pottery invite one’s calm curiosity.
Visit the penguins in vintage seaside towns, explore the art galleries and markets in the city centre, eat fresh seafood along the Waterfront Harbour or spend your day tasting wine at one of the many accessible vineyards. An absolute must is a day trip to Cape Point, merely 70km from Cape Town – a simply spectacular outing for nature lovers with white beaches, rugged cliffs, fynbos vegetation and wildlife.
Cape Town is also an adventure springboard to the western cape. Small historical towns and National Parks are merely a few hours drive away – Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, the Cederberg Mountains, Grootbos, as well as the perfect starting point to explore the Garden Route.
