Cape Town from the mountains

Cape Town, South Africa’s cultural mecca, is a much desired destination to visit for many travellers. This eclectic ‘Mother City’ is proudly multi-cultural and its flourishing arts, dining and nightlife scenes offer something for everyone – including the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary African Art (MOCAA) in the V&A Waterfront, which collects, preserves and exhibits 21st century art from across Africa.

Cable car to Table Mountain

It will come as no surprise that the massive, flattopped Table Mountain is South Africa’s most photographed landmark so be sure to catch a cable car to the top to enjoy spectacular views over the city. Not only this, but the Table Mountain National Park is home to 85 square miles of sheer beauty, such as a plethora of flora and fauna, including caracals (medium-sized wild cats), rock hyraxes and chacma baboons.

Other cultivated areas which should feature on your Cape Town ‘must-see’ list are the historic Company’s Garden, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and Green Point Urban Park. The city lends itself to unparalleled adventure experiences including surfing, hiking, mountain-biking and even the chance to abseil off the top of Table Mountain!

Cape Town is also the perfect starting point to head off on a trip to many wineries and, as South Africa produces some of the very best wines in the world, be sure to sample some of the offerings. A mere hour from Cape Town lies Stellenbosch, an oak-lined town surrounded by 100 wine cellars, including favourites such as Kanonkop, Spier and Rust en Vrede.

Leopard in South Africa, whale in Hermanus

Wildlife lovers will be in their element with a visit to Cape Town as you can join a number of excursions to go in search of ‘The Big Five’; African elephants, Cape buffaloes, lions, leopards and rhinos. Not only this, but nearby Hermanus is a prime whale-watching location and also offers shark-cave diving for the brave of heart.
