About Cape Town

Resting at the confluence of the Indian and Atlantic oceans, situated between the slopes of the iconic Table Mountain and the glistening sapphire waters of the Atlantic and Indian oceans, the exceptionally scenic city of Cape Town is in a class of its own. Some cities boast rich culture, vibrant nightlife, a cosmopolitan atmosphere and extraordinary architecture, while others boast breath-taking landscapes and extraordinary natural wonders. Cape Town is fortunate to be blessed with all these attractions and so much more. With its bustling harbour, world-class beaches, top-notch vineyards, and its mountainous surroundings brimming with diverse flora and fauna, Cape Town consistently captivates the hearts of all who visit.

V&A Waterfront
Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront is one of the city’s most beloved locations. The area is an exciting collage of culture, boutiques, bars and restaurants. All come together to form Cape Town’s premier esplanade.

Table Mountain
The quickest way to reach the top of Table Mountain is on the modern aerial cableway which whisks visitors to the summit in just five minutes, with rotating cars offering spectacular views of the mountain, city and surrounding oceans. On the summit, a casual restaurant offers dining with a view, with well-marked walking trails if you’d like to explore further afield. The most popular walk is the easy path to Maclear’s Beacon, the summit of Table Mountain at 3563-feet above sea level.

Roben Island
Lying 10 kilometres offshore of Cape Town, this infamous island – declared a World Heritage Site in 1999 – is most famous for its role as a political prison during apartheid. Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years behind bars on this desolate island, and today informative tours bring the chequered history of the island to life. Ferry tours depart daily from the Clocktower Precinct in the V&A Waterfront.
