Cape Town is filled with things to amaze and amuse both young and old year-round. Whether you visit with friends and family, with your partner, or choose to go it alone, you will never be short of things to do in the Mother City. Museums, monuments, theatres, galleries, shops and malls abound, along with seaside activities, ocean sports, hiking and tours to the famous wine lands.
Cape Town is big on arts and culture and one of the most hospitable cities in the world and you will be amazed at the mix of cultures and cuisines coexisting in this city – cuisine which is among the best in the wold, crafted from the freshest locally grown ingredients by master chefs of international acclaim.
