Known as South Africa's 'Mother City', Cape Town rests between the iconic backdrop of Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront, the country's most visited tourist attraction.
Out and about
- Take the slowly rotating cable car to the summit of Table Mountain for sweeping views across the harbour.
- Take a trip out to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.
- From June to November, take a whale-watching cruise to spot Southern Right Whales that calve during this period.
Just 40km to the west of Cape Town and set amongst the stunning mountain ranges of the Western Cape, you will find the towns of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl. All offer numerous vineyards, wine tastings and stunning local produce surrounded by incredible views.
