Things to do - general

Cape Town holidays is much more than a City Break! Cape Point offers rugged cliffs, scenic coastline, baboons and wild ostriches. The wooden walkways of Boulders beach allow you to observe the African penguins in their natural habitat without disturbing them.

Visit Simons Town, a haven for visitors interested in maritime history. Visit the statue of Able Seaman Just Nuisance and hear the story of this legendary Great Dane (and friend); Kirstenbosch Botanical gardens is a must for every visitor to Cape Town and is a haven for lovers of nature, flora and fauna.

Nightlife info

Cape Town entertainment and nightlife has something special that will appeal to everyone’s taste. Maybe it’s the diverse selection of places to choose from, which range from top class international venues, to settings with a typically warm and local flavour. Some may say it’s the mix of interesting personalities and attractive qualities of the people you will meet. Whatever the case, Cape Town has a vibe and an energy that will have you partying the night away, sipping cocktails overlooking the sparkling sea or just relaxing, ‘chilling out’, and enjoying the city’s unique atmosphere.Nightlife image

Culture and history info

Cape Town has a fascinating history, and as a result the modern-day culture of those who live here is both vibrant and eclectic. A good place to start your exploration into Cape Town's past is with the city's oldest building at the Castle of Good Hope, built as a fortress by the first white settlers, the Dutch. Robben Island is one of Cape Town's biggest tourist attractions and is a major highlight on any trip to the Mother City. Many of South Africa's most famous freedom fighters were incarcerated here, including Nelson Mandela, who spent 18 years on the island. Growing in popularity are tours to the townships on the Cape Flats, where a new urban culture is being forged. Tours provide a ‘behind the scenes' look at how communities live and work with visits to arts and crafts facilities and sustainable and environmental development projects.Culture and history image
