VISITING CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA? TRY ONE OF OUR TOURS...
Cape Town is Africa’s premier city and in 2011, was voted the best destination in the world by TripAdvisor readers. The city has so much to offer that at least three days are needed to see all the sites. Known as the Mother City, Cape Town’s backdrop is the majestic Table Mountain, voted one of the 7 New Wonders of Nature and it is surrounded by pristine beaches, many of which have the ‘blue flag’ EU status bestowed year-on-year. The Atlantic and Indian oceans meet here and its floral kingdom (over 9000 flower species) is a World Heritage Site. Across the bay is Robben Island, another World Heritage Site and best known for its maximum security prison where Nelson Mandela was held for over 20 years. There are two beautiful coastal drives to Cape Point; along the way are spectacular views, fishing villages, a penguin colony and endless beaches to swim or surf. The city itself has much history including the oldest military building in South Africa, the Castle of Good Hope. The cobbled streets of the Bo-Kaap area hide stories of the old slave quarters and Malay cultures and the V & A Waterfront is a shopper’s paradise. World class wine estates surround Cape Town and neighbouring city Stellenbosch.
