Cape Town


Referred to locally as the “Mother City,” Cape Town is the kind of sophisticated, coastal destination you’ll never want to leave. The scenery is spectacular, with not one but two oceans convening along the city’s picturesque beaches, and a majestic mountain that stands tall and proud as it watches over its 3.7 million inhabitants. Situated on a peninsula, the Western Cape capital is filled with quaint European touches, from architecture to cuisine. The South African city is bursting at the seams with so many things to see and do, including hiking Table Mountain and Signal Hill, spotting penguins in Boulders Beach, strolling Kirstenbosch National Botanic Garden, visiting Robben Island museum (the former prison that held Nelson Mandela) and much more.
