Cape Town is the jewel in South Africa’s crown. Voted last year’s Top Destination on Trip Advisor – and a regular top finisher in several other publications of high esteem – Cape Town captures the heart just hours after arrival. Touching down at the newly refurbished Cape Town International Airport, one immediately gets the feeling that the Mother City, as Cape Town is affectionately known, does not operate at quite the same speed that New York or London might. In Cape Town, the friendly locals are renowned for their enjoyment of life and love of the great outdoors.
With it’s European styled cosmopolitan city center in close proximity to miles of Golden beaches, the V&A Waterfront, Table Mountain, and Newlands Forest, Cape Town is truly blessed with an abundance of riches. Take in a scenic drive and visit the winelands of Stellenbosch or the gastronomic delights of culinary capital Franchshoek – both just under an hour away. The adventurous might choose to dive with the Great White sharks of Gansbaai whilst the culturally inclined could visit Robin Island – the famous prison where Nelson Mandela was held. In Cape Town, you truly are spoilt for choice.
