Situated on the southwestern tip of Africa, Cape Town is recognised as one of the most beautiful places on earth and is also one of the wine capitals of the world.

Perched between the ocean and the mountain, with a national park as its heart, there is nowhere like Cape Town.

Cape Town, the "Mother City", is the oldest city in South Africa and has a cultural heritage spanning more than 300 years.

You will never be bored in Cape Town. Table Mountain offers some of the best climbing in the world, and its right here in the city. The surfing is fantastic; the diving is cold but good. You could go mountain biking, or go sea kayaking - you may see whales or penguins.

Not only does it have the top five national attractions in South Africa such as a visit up Table Mountain, by cable car and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, internationally acclaimed as one of the great botanical gardens of the world but also The Victorian Waterfront offers the visitor a unique shopping and holiday experience on a scenic working harbour.

With its warm languid summers and mild, moist winters experience Cape Town and the Western Cape and discover the ultimate combo of nature, wildlife, culture, adventure, heritage and vibe!
