Visit Cape Town
|Table Mountain & Cableway, Cape Town
The top of Table Mountain offers spectacular views in all directions and gives a birds eye view of the city. The upper cable car station is situated at 1067 metres and the revolving cablecar makes sure that your trip up and down gives you a good look in all directions.
The famous Robben Island, whose prison was once home to former South African president Nelson Mandela as well as many other black political freedom fighters, is now a World Heritage Site and provides stunning views across the bay with Table Mountain as its backdrop. A trip to the island is an unforgettable experience and offers a glimpse into the life and times of the apartheid era.
|Boulders Penguin Colony, Cape Town
Boulders Penguin Colony is home to a growing colony of the vulnerable African Penguin. Wooden walkways allow visitors to view the penguins in their natural habitat and there is also a new information centre. Children will love the penguins and their antics and Boulders Beach is also worth a stop for safe and enjoyable swimming.
|Castle of Good Hope
Constructed between 1666 and 1679, the Castle of Good Hope is the oldest building in South Africa and has been exceptionally well preserved. Inside the walls of the pentagonal castle you will find a combination of cultural and military history dating back to the arrival of Jan van Riebeeck to the Cape in 1652.
|V & A Waterfront
For shopping, dining and entertainment the V&A Waterfront is a hotspot for tourists and locals alike. Still a working harbour, the Waterfront is an example of creative architecture and restoration and has become South Africa's most visited tourist attraction.
