What to Do
When it comes to what to do in Cape Town, it is usually a lack of time rather than a shortage of actual things to do, which hinders one. 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.
Nature plays a role here too, as Cape Town’s climate is perfect for an abundance of flora to flourish, Table Mountain is recognised as a floral kingdom in itself and the city brims with beautiful parks and natural areas.
Here is a selection of some of the most popular attractions in Cape Town:
The award-winning Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden is located on the slopes of Table Mountain and is part of the 528-hectare Table Mountain National Park.
The Cape Town Science Centre (STSC) is filled with fascinating things to see and do, and what’s more is that these activities are all educational to a degree.
This maximum security prison, was the South African equivalent of Alcatraz – situated on a barren island in the Atlantic Ocean, just off of Cape Town.
There are only two ways to go up Table Mountain but a number of things to enjoy once you reach the top.
The world’s most wonderful wines await just around the corner from your Cape Town accommodation.
