EXPLORE THE MOTHER CITY
Let Cape Town bring you into her warm embrace to explore her centuries-old heritage, extraordinary natural beauty and fascinating culture. Ramble through the cobbled streets of Bo Kaap, survey the peninsula from Table Mountain in the company of curious dassies and uncover the dark days of apartheid on Robben Island.
Explore the heart of Cape Town – an energetic city centre with charisma and attitude, centuries-old history and characters around every turn. See the 17th century Cape Castle, built by Jan van Riebeeck; the Company’s Garden created by the first European settlers to grow fresh produce for ships passing to the East; and District Six where thousands were forced to move in the 1960s by the apartheid regime.
Stroll through the vibrant V&A Waterfront – a bustling, buzzing shopping and entertainment hub set within a historical harbour, offering quaint food markets, craft and restaurants serving up delicious local flavours.
Ascend the magnificent table top that has watched over the Mother City for millennia, making it one of the oldest mountains on earth. Ramble across its plateau admiring 360-degree views of Cape Town, the Atlantic Seaboard and even Cape Point amidst beautiful fynbos and the resident dassies who vie for your attention. Not to forget, of course, the spectacular view of neighbouring Lions Head.
The colourful façades of Bo Kaap dot the slopes of Signal Hill and are yours to admire as you travel back in time to hear the stories and experience the culture of the Malay people who settled there centuries ago and used their skills to shape Cape Town as we know it today.
Against the impressive backdrop of Table Mountain, the lush Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens are home to almost half of the plant species found in South Africa, in addition to beautiful features which include an elevated fragrance garden, sculpture garden and a Tree Canopy Walkway with spectacular views of the Arboretum.
Explore the award-winning vineyards of the Constantia Winelands with its wine-making heritage that spans over three centuries. Admire the beautiful old architecture of these old wineries, and sample their delicious vintages against the beautiful lush backdrop of the Constantia valley.
Explore the vibrant culture and lively atmosphere of the Cape’s townships with a local guide. See how many South Africans live day-to-day and enjoy their unrivalled hospitality and friendship.
