Proudly located at the southern most point of Africa where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans collide is South Africa’s mother city, Cape Town. It’s South Africa’s first and foremost holiday location that sees roughly around 70% of people from the United Kingdom making Cape Town an important part of their getaway plans.
Cape Town is South Africa’s most well-known city and gives people superb shopping arcades, going out to restaurants and many other interesting attractions all beneath the background of the famous Table Mountain. The V&A Waterfront is the best area for a little retail therapy just before discovering a place to eat where you could sit outside and watch the world pass by all year round.
Interesting attractions in Cape Town include things like the Two Oceans aquarium, a craft market or you may prefer to relax and watch the local artists perform at the amphitheatre. Robben Island was the penitentiary where Nelson Mandela spent a number of years and it is open to people who can arrive by a quick boat trip.
Cape Point has claimed a great number of shipwrecks over time and it is worth travelling to the site that is at the very tip of Africa. The trip over Chapman’s Peak is as striking as the scene from Cape Point with its hairpin twists and turns and steep cliffs.
In addition to discovering countless activities to do in Cape Town, it’s also the ideal starting point to experience the neighbouring area of the Western Cape. The winelands of Paarl, Franshoek and Stellenbosch are a favourite with both self drive and escorted trips. Somewhere between July and October, the town of Hermanus is known to be undoubtedly one of the leading areas across the world where you are able to whale watch from the coast.
The amazing surroundings of Cape Town makes it a perfect location to spend your getaway for individuals looking for adventure, amusement or relaxation. A extensive range of accommodation is available to match all budgets.
