Cape Town is a Coastal City in South Africa and is the second most populous urban centre in South Africa. Set seductively between mountains and the sea, it flaunts its beauty with pride. Cape Town is the only city in the world to sit on two oceans – with the Atlantic on one side of the peninsula and the Indian Ocean on the other.
Its outstanding scenery, mild climate, and great tourist facilities make it one of the most popular tourist destinations in Africa. The question really shouldn’t be what you can do in Cape Town but what can’t you do in Cape Town. From a range of outdoor activities- hiking, biking, surfing, and Paragliding to whale-watching trips and cage dives with great white sharks, this city brims with adventure, culture, and arts.
From the plateau of the Table Mountain, you’ll be able to enjoy striking views of the city, scintillating Atlantic, Botanical Gardens that beckon from its slopes, and the city’s long beaches. On Robben Island, history lovers can see where Mandela was incarcerated for 27 years is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Entrance Of Robben Island
Few places in the world hold the gravitas of Robben Island. Though the island, visible from mainland Cape Town, was both whaling station and leper colony, its best known for its period as a political prison. After the fall of apartheid, the prison shut down and the island opened to visitors, many of whom journey there to pay homage to the late Nelson Mandela.
