Cape Town Attractions and Activities

Are you Travelling to Visit Cape Town?

The city of Cape Town itself and its Southern suburbs are all base on the slopes of Table Mountain. The city is also called the Mother City of South Africa, SA. Its a travel destination where one can explore historical gardens, enjoy white sandy beaches, daily excursions, and shop till you drop. It is one of the loveliest cities in the world.

Things to do:

Take a scenic flight or drive to capture the Hout Bay fishing harbour along the dramatic Chapman’s Peak and the world famous Cape of Good Hope on the final south-western end of Africa meeting the Indian and Atlantic sea-waters.

Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is an awesome shopping and entertainment centre based on the historical harbour where one can enjoy a boat cruise to Robben Island where the previous president Nelson Mandela was locked up in his prison days in the apartheid era.

The city is blessed with architectural and historical buildings with the most famous in Long street, while one must not miss out on a visit to the castle.

The Table Mountain Cable Car is a must, not because its the best tourist attraction in Cape Town, its mostly because of the views and the opportunity to catch some of the most spectacular pictures from the mountain top.  There are option to do guided hiking trips or if you dare to take the mountain on alone there’s a easier routes and maps available at information centers.
