ABOUT THE CITY

5 BEST THINGS TO DO IN CAPE TOWN

 

Table Mountain – is a flat-topped mountain forming a prominent landmark overlooking the city of Cape Town in South Africa. It is a significant tourist attraction, with many visitors using the cableway or hiking to the top. The mountain forms part of the Table Mountain National Park. Table Mountain is home to a large array of fauna and flora, most of which are endemic.

Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa – One of the most popular game reserves near Cape Town, Aquila boasts a big five safari experience. Situated in the Klein Karoo, just two hours outside of the city center, they offer a variety of experiences. Go on a traditional game drive or explore the reserve on horseback, quad bikes, or even from the air.

Seal Island – Located in False Bay just off the coast of Cape Town, Seal Island is a small granite landform absolutely swarmed with Cape Fur Seals. The piles of seals use the island as their main breeding ground and usually are left in peace. Humans have tried to inhabit the island, but failed, once as sealers in the early 20th century and later during World War II with an installation of a radar that was soon destroyed by the elements.

Boulders Beach – The beautiful Boulders Beach is one of Cape Town’s most visited beaches and the only place in the world where you get close to African Penguins. In 1982 a couple of these little crowd-pleasers settled on the soft white sand between the large granite boulders that protect the beach from wind and large, stormy waves, and currently, the population is estimated between 2,000 and 3,000 birds. Boulders and its surrounding beaches now form part of the Table Mountain National Park Marine Protected Area, thus ensuring the beaches are safe and clean, and the penguins protected.

Victoria & Alfred Waterfront – V&A Waterfront is a busy retail, dining and entertainment district with gifts and design stores, diverse museums, and a restaurant scene that covers burger joints to posh bistros. Family-friendly attractions include the towering Cape Wheel ride, the Two Oceans Aquarium, and the ClockTower Playground, which centers on an 1882 redbrick tower.
