Cape Town

Easily South Africa’s most iconic and vibrant city

The ultimate introduction to South Africa, Cape Town invites with its sweeping sun-kissed coastline, cosmopolitan culture, gastronomic delights, incredible scenery and balmy Mediterranean climate.

Easily South Africa’s most iconic and vibrant city, Cape Town offers its visitors a diverse array of experiences. Head to the coast to whale-watch and swim with dolphins, spend an afternoon soaking up the city’s rich history with a guided tour, or take a boat ride to Robben Island to see the place where Nelson Mandela spent a large part of his 27-year incarceration.

For incredible views of the city jump on a cable-car up to the summit of Table Mountain, Cape Town’s most famous peak and one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature. Those with a thirst for adventure can tackle the mountain on foot and scale the rocky trails to the summit.

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is located on the eastern slope of Table Mountain and is regarded as one of the country’s most beautiful natural spaces. There is over 50,000 sq. km to explore, with an impressive collection of indigenous plants to discover including South Africa’s national flower, the colourful protea.

Cape Town makes an excellent combination with a safari in the Kruger, or a fantastic stop-over whilst on a self-drive through the Garden Route. For those looking for some beach relaxation, end your Cape Town adventure with an Indian Ocean beach stay in Mauritius, the Seychelles or Mozambique.

Whether you’re looking for a luxurious South African honeymoon or a weekend getaway, a luxury apartment or family-friendly hotel, our tailor-made trips to Cape Town tick all the boxes.
