Cape Town Holiday

Cape Town: South Africa's Most Cosmopolitan City

Cape Town Map

Travellers the world over consistently vote Cape Town as one of the globe’s top travel destinations, and with good reason. South Africa’s Mother City is a hotspot of culture, colour, cuisine, and wine. And all of this set at the foot of the iconic Table Mountain.

Cape Town’s abundant offerings are encircled by some of the most breathtaking scenery you could imagine. Here, fynbos-covered mountains meet not one, but two oceans in a clash of dramatic beauty while sun-ripened vineyards stretch as far as the eye can see. In the city itself, cafes and trendy eateries line the streets between boutiques, curio shops, and galleries.

Then there are the beaches. Along the Atlantic Seaboard, powder-white shores attract sun worshippers and people-watchers in droves, while the warmer Indian Ocean waters of False Bay are the preferred choice for families, surfers and swimmers.

Naturally, Table Mountain takes centre stage, flanked by Lion’s Head and Devil’s Peak. You can’t come to Cape Town without visiting the summit of this flat-topped icon, whether by cable car or following one of the many hiking trails.

When to Go:

The Western Cape enjoys a Mediterranean climate. Most visitors holiday in Cape Town during the warm and dry summer months, with December to April a particularly busy season for travel. Winter, especially during July and August, is cold and wet.
