Fondly known as the Mother City, Cape Town is set on a rugged peninsula between the Indian and Atlantic Oceans with iconic Table Mountain as its backdrop, the city of Cape Town sits in one of the world’s most spectacular settings. But the scenery isn’t restricted to the city alone: short drives take visitors to white sandy beaches, traditional fishing villages and wild mountain ranges while must-see destinations such as Cape Point, the Cape Winelands and the whale-watching capital of Hermanus are easy day trips.
Cape Town is a versatile city and appeals to just about anyone, honeymooners, families, adventures lovers, and solo travellers. It’s a multi-faceted destination that is worth exploring. There are dozens of scheduled tours on offer but many visitors prefer to travel to Cape Town and discover this friendly and slow-paced city at their own pace: take some time to browse African craft markets in the walkably compact city centre, visit the colourful Cape Malay suburb of Bo Kaap, lounge on its best beaches and stroll around the ever-popular V&A Waterfront with its shops, restaurants and luxurious hotels.
There’s no worrying about getting the right kind of accommodation for your vacation either: our wide range of Cape Town accommodation is a hand-picked selection of stylish guest houses, romantic boutique hotels, private villas overlooking the ocean and family-friendly hotels with expansive lawns for kids to run around on.
And finally, what makes Cape Town such a great place to travel to is that, be that it is so easy to combine with other amazing destinations within the region. You can combine is with a road trip on the spectacular garden route, Kruger National Park or Safari in Botswana. Our experts will put together the once in a lifetime experience to make your African trip worthwhile.
