Geography and History

Fondly known as the ‘mother city’, Cape Town lies in the arms of Table Mountain, in the Western Cape Province of South Africa

More often than not, shrouded in cloud and one of the world’s most recognisable landmarks. The heart of Cape Town’s city, is one of the only major CBDs in South Africa, if not the world, that hasn’t experienced urban decay or major relocation of big business.

Long Street is a mix of African curios, antique shops, book shops and coffee shops and restaurants. During peak season, market stalls line some of the avenues near Green market Square and many art exhibitions.

Accommodation

The city centre has a variety of accommodation options available from Guest Houses, Bed and Breakfasts to Self-catering units.

Activities

For the tourist, Cape Town offers a variety of activities and attractions, such as the Two Oceans Aquarium, Ratanga Junction Theme Park, Canal Walk Shopping Centre, craft markets, the BMW Pavilion, IMAX Theatre and numerous shopping centres.

 

The centre of Cape Town has grown over the last few years and is the business centre but it is also a chance to experience South Africa’s past - the South African Museum, the Castle of Good Hope, Company Gardens, Government Avenue and other museums and galleries lining the centre of town.

Taking a ride up the cable car to Table Mountain is well worth the visit. Lion’s Head, the conical shaped mountain next to the table top is another mountain worth the trip.

 

Restaurants

There are many restaurants on offer to suit every visitors budget.  There is a great selection of restaurants, coffee shops and pubs to choose from!
