Cape Town in South Africa
Cape Town attractions
have made it a famed destination for many Hollywood & Bollywood stars and
diverse global travelers alike. Take a trip to on the Cape Winelands and
taste South Africa's homegrown wines; see the world from your vantage point
on the top of famed Table Mountain; dine like a king at any of South
Africa's fantastic restaurants and celebrate the great outdoors even during
the winter months. For some great retail therapy why not head to the V&A
Waterfront. It's a super spot shopping and eating, and its attractions
include the Two Oceans Aquarium, a craft market and an amphitheatre where
local artists perform. From here you can take a harbour cruise or strike out
for Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela spent many years in imprisonment.
The treacherous Cape Point promontory a witness to many a shipwreck enhances
Cape Town's reputation for dramatic scenery. It's a trip well worth making,
the last part up to a lighthouse completed by funicular.
The journey to Cape Point includes a 10 km drive over Chapman's Peak which,
with its hairpin bends atop sheer cliff drops, sets the stage for scenic
awe. The drive also links the city to Hout Bay and Noordhoek beaches. Cape
Town has activities aplenty for more sedate natural encounters in Cape Town.
On the eastern slopes of the mountain are the celebrated botanical gardens
at Kirstenbosch, with walks of all levels to tackle, landscaped picnic spots
and restaurants serving as a refined break with their offerings of tea and
scones (or a glass of good Cape wine). Its striking beauty and rugged
landscape makes Cape Town the ideal holiday spot for those seeking
adventure, relaxation and entertainment. The city offers something for
everyone and all accommodation tastes and budgets are welcomed.
