The city of Cape Town is situated right on the southern tip of South Africa. It is called the “Mother City” by locals, as it is the oldest city in the country, founded in 1645. There is lots of history to discover during a holiday in South Africa – from the Company Gardens which historically grew produce to replenish ships in the 17th and 18th centuries; to visiting Robben Island where former President Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. Visitors can see the cell where he spent 27 years in captivity, mostly in solitary confinement.
Visitors can take a Cable Car or hike to the top of Table Mountain and take in the views of the city and coastline below during their South African vacation. This unique flat-topped mountain is one of the oldest mountains on Earth. The white cloud which sometimes spills over the top looks like a tablecloth hence the name. Explore the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, the harbour area and indulge in some luxury shopping at the many world-class shops.
Cape Town is known as a global foodie hotspot and there are many world-class restaurants and cafes offering anything from affordable tasty local cuisine to fine dining. Tourists can often dine affordably in some of the best restaurants in the World. Many places serve delicious regional cuisine and local favourites include dishes such as Baboetie and Malva pudding from the Cape Malay people.
Stroll through historic downtown, where there are many museums, parliament and the Castle. Explore the rainbow coloured suburb of Bo Kaap which is the historic home of the Cape Malay people who were brought in historically as slaves from many countries and have a unique cultural heritage.
Relax on the perfect sandy white beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay. Take a beautiful coastal drive along the peninsula, including world-famous Chapmans Peak Drive to the lighthouse at Cape Point. Stop along the way and visit the African penguin colony on Boulders. Spend a morning strolling through the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, one of the World’s most beautiful botanical gardens which showcase unique local plants called fynbos which is renowned for incredible biodiversity.
