Cape Town where the Indian and Atlantic ocean meet is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. Slowly rotating cable cars climb to the mountain’s flat top, from which there are sweeping views of the city, the busy harbour and boats heading for Robben Island in Table Bay. The notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela is now a living museum.
Cape Town and the wider western cape is blessed with a whole host of attractions for a wide variety of traveller. Take your pick from excursions up Table Mountain, or leisurely trips to the famous wine lands of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. If you prefer to be in the city itself there a numerous shops, restaurants and bars in the many malls including the world famous Victoria and Alfred waterfront. There is always something going on in Capetown and as a city it hosts many musical, art and sporting events.
