Welcome to Cape Town, South Africa’s Mother City and home to Table Mountain, one of the great 7 Wonders of Nature in the World. It stands as only one of the many amazing adventures to experience in Cape Town. There’s something for every visitor to love. After you’ve hiked up or taken the Aerial Cableway to the top of Table Mountain, we encourage all our visitors to experience all the other wonders Cape Town has to offer.
Steeped in history, culture, and natural beauty, the CBD and surrounds are bustling with restaurants, eateries, bars and clubs, boasting some of the best dishes and beverages in the world. From Constantia to Stellenbosch visitors can also explore and enjoy some of the best and oldest wine farms in the Cape, sipping on award winning house wines and beers. Take the wine and food tours by bus, tuktuk, or tram to see all there is to see.
It’s not just the wine farms that stand as testaments to Cape Town history, but Cape Town is proud to share its heritage to the world with our museums, walking tours, art galleries and ancient buildings. From the Castle of Good Hope and the sprawling tunnels that spread out beneath it, to the prison on Robben Island where Nelson Mandela and many other political prisoners found themselves incarcerated, visitors won’t find themselves short of things to learn about the city and its people.
For nature enthusiasts and families, explore the Cape to experience the biodiversity and beauty of our unique environment. From the aquarium teaming with hundreds of ocean creatures, to the seal colonies and penguin beaches, to cage diving with massive crocs and even bigger great whites, to the game reserves that are home to the African Big 5, there’s animals for the whole family to see and get a close and personal with. Our national parks, boasting lush greenery, stunning views and thousands of indigenous fauna, are a must-see on any trip to Cape Town.
If you’re still eager to explore the outdoors, enjoy some of the most beautiful beaches the Cape has to offer, from the warm waters of the Southern peninsula to the crystal waters and white sands of Clifton and Camps bay. Take in the sights by land, air, or sea; with tours by vintage sidecars, buses and rentables on land, helicopters and tandem paragliders by air, or speed boats, pirate ships and yachts by sea, it’s all yours to experience. Our sunset champagne cruises and party boats are particularly popular, and there are many whale watching cruises that also give you the opportunity to spot dolphins, sharks, seals, and many other marine animals.
When families are still looking for fun for the kids, they’ll find there’s still plenty for the little ones to do. With play parks, go-kart tracks, crystal scratch patches, animal parks and much, much more, you won’t find a lack of entertainment for them. Especially at the waterfront, where the kids can enjoy the exciting adventures while the parents dine, shop, and relax.
With all this and much more, you’ll definitely enjoy your stay in Cape Town. Mingle with locals, wine and dine, and explore to your heart’s content, and make the most of your stay in the Mother City!
