Table Mountain Cape Town Tourism 2

Table Mountain

One of the Western Cape’s most iconic sights, Table Mountain looms large over the Mother City. The eye-catching mountain, one of the New7Wonders of Nature, has a level plateau flanked by impressive cliffs, and is thought to be around 300-million years old. Distinct sandstone caves are a feature of Table Mountain, unlike most mountains on Earth. It is also home to the uniquely South African Cape flora known as fynbos. The views from the mountain’s tabletop are superb and a favourite for locals and visitors. This is Cape Town’s most majestic and photo-worthy landmark.View

    Cape Point

    Just 60km from Cape Town lies Cape Point, a nature reserve within the Table Mountain National Park. Part of a recognised World Heritage Site, it offers abundant nature, stunning views and deserted beaches. Cape Point is a popular day trip thanks to its excellent hiking trails, beach-side picnic spots and birdwatching. But the highlight is the Cape of Good Hope: one of the most dangerous sailing routes in history – it’s nicknamed the “Cape of Storms” – you can still see the skeletons of dozens of past shipwrecks.View
      The Cape Winelands

      The Cape Winelands

      The Western Cape is famous for its wine, with the history of the Cape intrinsically tied to the vine. Nowhere is this truer than in the Cape Winelands, a region overflowing with award-winning vintages and home to a number of world-class vineyards. As such, you cannot visit the Western Cape and leave without a trip to the Cape Winelands. The region is vast – and diverse – and, truth be told, needs to be visited more than once to savour all that it has to offer.View
        Robben Island

        Robben Island

        Robben Island is famous, or rather infamous, as the holding place for the imprisoned Nelson Mandela. Mandela served 18 of his 27 years in prison on the island and it has become synonymous with the struggle. Today Robben Island is a World Heritage Site and museum, offering daily tours. The tour begins at the Nelson Mandela Gateway at the V&A Waterfront with a multimedia exhibition, museum shop and restaurant, after which guests hop onto a ferry for a scenic trip to the island. Once on Robben Island itself, the tour is guided by a former political prisoner of the island, for unique and incomparable insights into the island’s history. Parents who want their children to learn more about South Africa’s political history and gain insight into the struggles and triumphs of the past will find the Robben Island experience a great way to share South Africa’s history and ensure that their children appreciate our city’s heritage.View

          V&A Waterfront

          This bustling shopping, dining and entertainment area at the Table Bay Harbour is as much a sightseeing hotspot as Table Mountain. In fact, the views of the iconic mountain are stunning from the harbour here, which was developed from redundant docklands. Shopping is the main attraction at the V&A, with over 450 retail outlets to choose from. But locals know there’s more on offer, including free, live entertainment, the aquarium and top-rated restaurants.View

            Two Oceans Aquarium

            Showcasing the underwater life of South Africa’s Indian and Atlantic oceans, the Two Oceans Aquarium has more than 3 000 creatures on view. Major draws are the local giant-sized crabs and Nemo lookalikes. There is also an underwater kelp forest, and an eyeball-popping tank with ragged-tooth sharks and stingrays. Visitors can catch shark-feeding on Sunday afternoons. The aquarium is a fun day out for the family and a great option if the weather is unfriendly.View
