Cape Town known as 'The Mother City' is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with Cape Town holidays offering something for everyone. The city is set on a sweeping bay with Table Mountain towering 1000 metres above sea level as a dramatic backdrop. The summit of the mountain can be reached by cable car or on foot for the more energetic, and once at the top there are breathtaking views of the city and nearby beaches. On the Eastern slopes of Table Mountain lie the famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens boasting over 5000 species of indigenous plants.
The Victoria and Albert Waterfront is one of South Africa's leading tourist attractions with hotels, shops, craft markets and restaurants all set on a working harbour. The ferry departs from the harbour to Robben Island, now a National Monument but once the prison where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for more than 20 years.
Holidays to Cape Town offer visitors gardens, markets, museums, galleries and many historic buildings together with sleek skyscapers which all blend to make this vibrant city the number one tourist attraction in South Africa.
Further afield, make time to visit the peninsular, the spectacular southern tip of South Africa. From the stunning scenery of the Cape of Good Hope with mountain zebra, eland and ostriches to the penguins of Boulders Beach and the historic naval port of Simon's Town there is so much to see at the Fairest Cape.
