What to Choose From in Cape Town

Deciding which of Cape Town’s fantastic attractions you simply can’t miss and which you will have to save for your next trip can be a challenge:

Table Mountain

The cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain is something you simply cannot miss.

Robben Island

Robben Island, the jail where Nelson Mandela spent many of his 27 years in prison preparing to become one of the world’s greatest statesmen is an extraordinary piece of History.

The Cape Point Nature Reserve

Cape Point, where the cold Benguela Current from the Atlantic meets the warm Mozambique Current from the Indian Ocean is a place of extraordinary beauty and getting there takes in the wonderful sights of the Cape Peninsula.

The outstanding Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens on the slopes of Devil's Peak in the southern suburbs of Cape Town showcase Fynbos, the world’s most diverse ecosystem.
