There can be few cities with a setting more spectacular than Cape Town’s. The majestic Table Mountain forms a magnificent backdrop to this thriving metropolis, which has emerged from the shadow of apartheid as a vibrant, cosmopolitan destination.
Cape Town is a multicultural city with a unique spirit, where ethnic diversity is embraced and visitors are assured a warm welcome. Amid the scars of the past still in evidence at District 6 and Robben Island are brightly-coloured buildings and breathtaking natural scenery. Stunning beaches, verdant winelands and majestic mountains surround the buzzing city. Take a cable car up to Table Mountain for incredible vistas, or go hiking around the Twelve Apostles. Watch the penguins waddling along Boulders Beach, or glimpse at whales in the wild gliding through the surf at Hermanus. Make your way to the bustling V&A Waterfront for excellent shopping, bar-hopping and world-class dining. Whatever you do, don’t leave your holiday in Cape Town without sampling some of its internationally-renowned wine.
