South Africa is a rainbow nation that boasts of a healthy multi-racial society. This rainbow symbolism is also seen in the cultural diversity of the country and the contrast in the country’s landscape and social fabric. From the North to the South, West to East, this country offers spectacular displays of beauty. There is however one outstanding city which attracts millions of visitors from within and outside the country, this is the city of Cape Town.
Capetown is the most populous city after Johannesburg and happens to be a great city to visit, to live in, to work in, to play in and to invest in. Also known as the mother city, it’s located in the south-west corner of the country near the Cape of Good Hope, and is the most southern city in Africa.
The Cape Town metropolitan area covers a large area, from Durbanville and Somerset West in the east to Cape Point in the south and Atlantis in the north. The city centre is located in a relatively small area between Table Mountain and Table Bay.
A holiday experience in Capetown is like no other. Its spectacular beauty is unique as is the huge range of fun and varied activities on offer. You will see beautiful scenery from oceans to mountains and vineyards and, can stop off at various view points for a picnic or just to take it all in. Cape Town’s icon, Table Mountain, stands with her base firmly within the Table Mountain National Park, 1 086 metres above Table Bay. Robben Island, just off the coast of Cape Town, is famous for the imprisonment of South Africa’s first democratic President, Nelson Mandela in its maximum-security prison and its association with apartheid. However, today the island is a World Heritage Site and home to a museum. At the end of the Cape Peninsula, about 80 km from Cape Town, is Cape Point. The V&A Waterfront, a renovation of part of Cape Town’s Dockyard, is one of the mother city’s biggest tourist attractions. It draws over 20 million visitors a year and is a combination of shopping, entertainment and office locations,
Cape Town is indeed the city to behold.
