Cape Town tourism showcase well under way

14th Sep 2012

People enjoying holidays in Cape Town can find much to keep them busy at the moment with the annual Tourism Month well under way.

From learning about the country's recent history on Robben Island to witnessing incredible views from the top of Table Mountain, the city believes it can cater for all tastes.

The brave and adventurous can choose to swim with sharks while those less in need of an adrenaline rush can head to renowned South African vineyards and sample some of the produce.

Naturally, many other visitors are on safari holidays and make spotting the 'Big Five' the focus of their trip.

Mariette du Toit-Helmbold, chief executive officer of Cape Town Tourism, believes if locals are able to visit and take pride in the landmarks of their city, they will pass their passion on to foreign visitors.

She said: "In our industry it is imperative that locals have easy and affordable access to all of the Cape's tourism experiences."

Over the coming days and weeks many people enjoying Cape Town breaks will likely follow in the path of locals to find the "iconic gems" on offer.
