Cape Town Cruises
Cape Town brings together cultures, cuisines, and magnificent views: a stunning city crowned by the magnificent Table Mountain National Park. A city that is defined by the flat-topped mountain it sits beneath, Cape Town is known for its lively Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and harbour, serene vineyards and impressive landscapes. This picturesque ‘city bowl’ on the shores of Table Bay, is best seen from the top of Table Mountain – accessible via cable car. [ReadMoreMob]
Cape Town is a rich melting pot of people, and a proudly multicultural centre. Given it was World Design Capital in 2014, creative art and design is unsurprisingly never too far way. Exploring the city is a pleasure, and the attractions include the historic Company’s Gardens, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Green Point Park.
Away from the urban centre, winelands such as Stellenbosch and Franschhoek offer a distraction of a different kind, [ReadMoreDesk]while at Cape Point National Park boasts breathtaking coastlines and whale watching opportunities. Visitors can also learn of Nelson Mandela’s inspirational life and legacy at Robben Island, or perhaps spend a memorable evening watching the sunset at Signal Hill.
Table Mountain National Park
Towering Table Mountain is one of the continent’s – possibly the world’s – most iconic landmarks. It’s just a part of a national park offering stunning biodiversity and spectacular views. Other impressive sites include Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden.
Robben Island was long a place of political imprisonment. It is now a living museum and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can take tours of the former Maximum Security Prison, where notable former residents include Nelson Mandela and Jacob Zuma.
South African Wine
South Africa has an impressive winemaking history and heritage stretching back to the 17th century. Constantia – a suburb of Cape Town and the oldest winemaking centre in South Africa – is where it all began. Cape Point is a popular area for wineries, too.
