Cape Town is a dynamic and beautiful city, the oldest city in South Africa, it is a beacon of cultural diversity, historical significance and natural beauty.
Cape Town boasts several beautiful beaches. On the one side the Atlantic Ocean, and on the other, the Indian, each with their own unique attractions. The two meet in False Bay where the icy Atlantic is soothed by the warm Indian. There are a multitude of beaches to choose from, all running across the West Coast, Atlantic Seaboard and False Bay. Many of Cape Town's beaches have achieved Blue Flag status - this is an international award that was given to you
Visiting our quirky penguins at Boulders Beach is quite an experience. This is one of the few sites where you can observe African penguins at close range, as they wander freely in a protected natural environment. From just two breeding pairs in 1982, the population has grown to several thousand in recent years.
The Bo-Kaap is a city of great significance, a rainbow-coloured housed and steep cobblestone roads. He is a social hub of a big city, he has been a social hub of Cape Town's historical heritage. At the top of the Bo-Kaap, you will find the famous Noon Gun. This canon goes off every day at 12h00 sharp! ... giving many a short start.
'It's about the destination, it's about the journey ...', whichever route you decide to take to get to Cape Point will promise to be scenic. While this is the adventure, the reward at the destination is even greater. Stretches of indigenous fynbos, breath-taking bays, beaches and rolling green hills and valleys.
One of the best ways to spend your day in Cape Town is tasting the culture of the Cape. You may combine wine with some of the most beautiful imaginable landscapes, century-old architecture, and world-class cuisine. Cape Town's most beloved activities for locals and travelers alike. We know how to decide where to start. The Wine Route, the Helderberg Wine Route, the Durbanville wine route, and the Franschhoek wine route. All are worthy of travelers attention.
No visit to Cape Town is complete without a wander through Africa's most beautiful garden, the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens. This is considered one of the most highly acclaimed botanical gardens in the world and lies on the slopes of Table Mountain. Many strolls around this beautifully manicured park to soak up the sounds, colours, and scents of its natural beauty.
Robben Island is an essential destination for any visitor to a South African political history. This little island which was once a leper colony has housed a mental institution, a military base, a whaling station, but is better known as the prison island on which Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for political activism. It is now a museum dedicated to the preservation of struggle and his ability to rise above his brutal incarceration and dream of the Rainbow Nation we have today.
And lastly, the iconic, Cape Town's own Natural Wonder of the World, Table Mountain is impossible to miss when the city - literally. This stunning and unique geographical feature is visible from the most city, but a cable car ride - or short hike - is almost obligatory. This iconic feature gives its name to constellation - Canteen, which means the table. You can see the constellation below Orion around midnight in mid-July. 'Tablecloth' on certain days, clouds will billow over the mountain to form. Legend has it, there was once a pipe-smoking competition between the Devil and a Dutch pirate called Van Hunks, destined to be repeated every year, the tablecloth symbolizes this puffing contest.
Cape Town has something for everyone, from shark cage to romantic beaches. Let More & More Africa take your hand in the Mother City, and create your own Cape Town adventure!
