Some particular highlights of this gregarious city include taking a hike or the cable car up Table Mountain and taking in the spectacular panoramic view. Also, visit the cute African penguins at Boulders Beach near Simon’s town and the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden which is home to a large variety of animals, birds and vegetation.

Take a 30-40 minute ferry ride and visit the notorious Robben Island, now a UN heritage site where Nelson Mandela was famously held prisoner during apartheid. All tours are taken by former political prisoners and make for a particularly emotional experience.

The Victorian & Alfred (V&A) Waterfront is great for shopping and restaurants and also features a large aquarium. Whilst Camps Bay boasts a picture perfect sweeping white beach, lined with palm trees, hip wine bars and fine dining restaurants.

Perhaps the most talked about attraction in Cape Town though is the food and wine – there are so many fabulous eateries in this city that you will not know where to start – or stop! A decadent way to spend the afternoon is to visit the Mount Nelson Hotel for afternoon tea, but book in advance as it gets very popular.
