For the first-time visitor, it’s an essential stop on your trip, whilst to the initiated Cape Town evokes memories of beautiful sunny holidays, an easy-going lifestyle, great shopping, fascinating history and some wonderful hotels, all sandwiched between the sand-fringed Atlantic Ocean and the iconic backdrop of Table Mountain. Cape Town is also a city of contrasting neighbourhoods, from the sun-kissed Californian feel of Camps Bay, to the vibrancy of Long Street, the slave heritage of Bo Kaap, and the booming district of Greenpoint, centred on the remarkable 2010 FIFA World Cup stadium.
There is a fantastic array of activities and excursions in Cape Town to fill your day with. It is normally the base from which you’d explore the stunning and wild Cape Peninsula, as well as taking in the sights of the city itself, including a trip up Table Mountain and a tour of Robben Island prison, where Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years of imprisonment. You must also visit the modern shops and restaurants of the V&A Waterfront. By teaming up with a truly amazing local charity, Uthando, we can take you on a tour of projects they support within these townships and show you that there is progress being made on this. If you have time, the Winelands is a beautiful region right on the city’s doorstep which produces some amazing wines and plays host to some outstanding restaurants. Cape Town is rightfully recognised as one of the most iconic cities in the world, and will undoubtedly be a real highlight of your holiday in South Africa.
