Cape Town is South Africa’s cultural hub. The iconic Table Mountain is visible from all over the city – take a gondola or climb to the top for unmissable views of the city, the surrounding mountains and the South Atlantic Ocean. Kirstenbosch botanic garden hugs the bottom of Table Mountain, and visitors can easily spend the best part of a day wandering the specialist gardens, or taking part in events and markets. Cape Town has several beaches for surfing and sunbathing, including at Sea Point and False Bay. For a unique beach experience, check out the penguin colony at Boulders Beach.
Inside the city, you can walk around the colourful Bo-kaap Muslim quarter; go boutique shopping on Long Street; dine out on the bustling waterfront, the trendy cafes of Kalk Bay, or the Neighbourgoods Market; drink local wine or investigate the growing South African beer brewing scene at one of the numerous bars and taphouses; get some spectacular views at Lion’s Head and Signal Hill; and learn some local history at Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned) and the District Six Museum.
