About Cape Town

With Table Mountain towering in the backdrop and a coastline formed of stunning beach, it is little wonder why Cape Town is one of South Africa's most popular destinations. From the city, the rugged cliffs with their thick layer of greenery and flowers are clearly visible and create a dramatic landscape. The city itself, given its relatively small size due to it being barricaded in by the various mountains, is perfect for strolling around and, as you would expect with any thriving city, there are dozens of swanky eateries and cool bars as well as more chilled out food outlets and plenty of shopping options.
