Holidays in Cape Town
One of Africa's most iconic cities, Cape Town is the beating heart of South Africa, its most cosmopolitan and culture-rich city with a colourful kaleidoscope of landmarks, historical riches and amazing landscapes to admire. Widely known as one of the world's most multicultural cities, Cape Town is the second-most populous city in South Africa and the capital city of the Western Cape. With a varied and diverse landscape that changes from modern business districts, a lively downtown area, elegant hotels to sheer natural beauty and awe-inspiring wilderness, Cape Town has long been considered one of the most strikingly beautiful places in the world.
A cultural melting pot like no other of its kind, in Cape Town prepare to experience diverse attractions that range from cultural and adventurous attractions to wildlife, nightlife, eco-friendly and pristine Blue Flag beaches and rich heritage. If planning a holiday to Cape Town there are several landmarks no tourist should miss and these include the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela and other political prisoners spent decades imprisoned), the Whale Coast, Cape Point Nature Reserve and the unmissable West Coast's fishing villages and wild flowers (where you will find an amazing a display of flora that will leave you jaw-dropped). Top attractions and things to experience also include visiting The Cape Winelands (to sample award-winning wines and indulge in a wine tasting tour) and taking the famous Garden Route along Mossel Bay to Plettenberg Bay; enroute you will find meandering rivers and thriving forests offering the perfect playground for a plethora of activities including snorkelling, scuba diving, golfing, kayaking, canoeing, river-rafting, biking, flying, hand-gliding, para-gliding, ballooning, parachuting, bungee jumping and much more!
