Experience the cosmopolitan bustle of Cape Town; an electric mix of world class hotels, spectacular scenery and fascinating history. One of the most popular destinations in Southern Africa, the city is dominated by magnificent Table Mountain. Reach the top of the towering massif with a handy cable car for some of the city's best views.
Or, embrace the lively buzz of the V&A Waterfront with countless shops and restaurants to explore. You can also catch a ferry to Robben Island from here. The Island was once used as a prison which held Nelson Mandela, a unique opportunity to visit his cell and learn more about prison life.
Perhaps a beach break would be more to your tastes, in which case the suburbs don't disappoint. Relax on the beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay and absorb their vibrant nightlife. Travel beyond Cape Town's limits to experience the Cape Winelands or enjoy some wine tasting closer to the city in Constantia.
There are a spectacular array of sights to take-in, from the penguins of boulders beach to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and iconic Cape Point; holidays to Cape Town are as diverse as the city is beautiful.
