Our guide to Cape Town

A lively metropolis surrounded by sea, mountains, nature parks and vineyards, Cape Town is a great introduction to South Africa. Start your journey through the city from the top of Table Mountain which can be reached via cable car. Gaze across the city from the top of the mountain or from Signal Hill, and see the many wild flowers that grow in profusion in the nature park that surrounds the peaks. Heading further south, you’ll arrive at Boulder’s Beach where you can hang out with scores of penguins. Next you can explore the national park of the Cape of Good Hope, and witness the waves of two oceans crash against the rugged cliffs. After experiencing the picturesque natural vistas surrounding the city, it’s time to check out the urban gems that hide in plain view across Cape Town. Take in the buzz of the Bay Harbour Market and Greenmarket Square, before escaping to the nearby relaxing park Company’s Garden in which you’ll find a statue of the magnate and statesman Cecil John Rhodes. Next, a tour of the Castle of Good Hope as well as the South African Museum will take you through the country’s rich, colourful and at times turbulent past. Continue your journey through history, by sailing from the V&A Harbour to the infamous Robben Island off the eastern coast of the country. A prison colony for centuries, it was used during the days of apartheid to hold several political prisoners. The most famous of these is undoubtedly Nelson Mandela, who spent 18 years out of a total of 27 behind bars on this barren place. A tour around the island takes you through its dark past and ends at Nelson Mandela’s tiny prison cell. Travelling back to the mainland you can gather your impressions of the day, before again reaching the V&A harbour where you’ll find plenty of bars and restaurants to while away the evening. A stay in Cape Town should also not be without day trips to nearby sights and culinary destinations. Tour the Stellenbosch vineyards to sample some of the great South African grapes, travel to Walker Bay for chance to watch whales or travel north to the West Coast National Park, where you’ll be able to see thousands of unique wildflowers. Cape Town is a diverse and multifaceted city where your holiday will be like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
