Cape Town

Sitting right at the southernmost tip of Africa, Cape Town regularly features highly on the lists of the top destinations in the world. A naturally beautiful city, the world-famous Table Mountain – a majestic backdrop that was recently named one of the natural wonders of the modern world – watches over Cape Town to the one side while the Atlantic Ocean caresses her shores on the other.

Spectacular scenery, beautiful beaches close to the city center and luxury accommodation options will ensure you have a memorable stay. Fill your days with shopping at the buzzing V&A Waterfront, take a ferry trip across the bay to Robben Island or enjoy scenic drive to Cape Point. Kids will love interacting with penguins on Boulder’s Beach or running on the lawns of the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens, home to the famous Summer Concerts.

The city is a gourmet’s delight with a vast selection of restaurants, trendy beach café’s, cocktail bars and pubs. With some of the world’s best wine farms a short, scenic drive away, the foodie is well and truly catered for and palette satisfaction is guaranteed. For those seeking thrills when the sun sets, Cape Town is home to some of South Africa’s best nightclubs too.

Adrenaline junkies can enjoy tandem paragliding off Lion’s Head, great surf spots like Muizenberg and Llandudno or shark cage diving in Gansbaai. After your fill of extreme sports, why not take in a play at one of Cape Town’s well-established theatres or check out the Iziko Museum for great child friendly exhibits and art. In Cape Town, you are limited only by your imagination.
