Travel Bureau - Holiday Destinations: Cape Town

Cape Town

A flamboyant city overlooked by one of South Africa's most recognisable features, Table Mountain. Not only does this city have breathtaking views and lots of places to sight-see, it has some of the best golden beaches and a vibrant nightlife.

With a generous selection of hotels to choose from, you won’t be disappointed with what Cape Town has to offer. Why not stay at the One & Only Cape Town hotel, a world class spa situated on the Victoria & Alfred water front with views across Table Mountain, or the Southern Sun Cullinan, a stylish hotel placed between the centre of Cape Town and the water front, only 10 minutes from all of Cape Town’s attractions.

The Victoria & Alfred water front is one of the city's most visited attractions. The water front is ideal for visitors who want a relaxing holiday with lots of shops, entertainment venues, bars and restaurants all in one place.

Take a stroll through the world famous Botanical Garden, located on the Eastern slope of Table Mountain, which showcases South African plants and is home to a variety of animals. Keen hikers can conquer Nursery Ravine or the Skeleton Gorge, the two paths which wind their way up the mountain. If you’re looking for a more relaxed day, why not bring a picnic basket and enjoy the garden at your own leisure. 

Other attractions include; Castle of Good Hope (Oldest Colonial building in South Africa), Green Market Square, Penguins at Boulders Beach and Two Oceans Aquarium.

We Liked:
