Cape Town, the ‘Mother City’, is the oldest city in our country. It is also not only the most popular international tourist destination in South Africa, but has been named Africa’s Best City and it holds second position in the Top Cities of the World poll (Travel and Leisure magazine, July 2009).
The UK Telegraph voted Cape Town as their Best Foreign City while Condé Nast Traveler lists Cape Town as the Top City in Africa and the Middle East.
Cape Town has also been listed as one of the World’s five Bluest Sky Destinations. This is due to its good climate and its well-known natural features such as Table Mountain, Cape Point, Chapman’s Peak Drive and its beautiful beaches. Also not to be missed is the Victoria and Alfred (V&A) Waterfront, a unique shopping and holiday experience on a scenic working harbour; Robben Island, the former home of Nelson Mandela; the Cape Town Wine Routes, where some of the world´s best wines are produced and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, internationally acclaimed as one of the great botanical gardens of the world!
South Africa is referred to as a world in one country. It offers the visitor a range of things to do, experience and to explore.
