Cape Town, affectionately known as South Africa’s ‘Mother City’ ranks as one of the World’s most beautiful cities and is one of South Africa’s top tourist destinations. It is a cosmopolitan and vibrant city with something for everyone. It’s famous landmarks, Table Mountain and the Cape of Good Hope, are highlights of any visit, but there are also beautiful beaches, fantastic restaurants and lively nightlife. Cape Town is located in a biodiversity hotspot, with one of the highest biodiversities in the World. Table Mountain alone has over 2,200 species of plants growing on it. The city also lies on the doorstep of the Winelands, where much of South Africa’s wine is produced. Visitors can spend a day visiting several of the vineyards and tasting the excellent local wines. Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was detained, is also a fascinating site to visit during a stay in Cape Town. With so much to do in this exciting city we recommend a minimum of a 3-night stay.
