City of Cape Town
Cape Town lies at the southern toe of the African continent. Blaauwberg Beach and Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens are within easy driving distance of “The Mother City.”
The Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve provides sweeping sea vistas, hiking trails and wildlife encounters. On a more somber note, travelers can visit Robben Island, the prison where Nelson Mandela was held for 27 years.
When to Visit
The best time to visit Cape Town is probably late January to April – the Easter period is particularly nice. There’s still plenty of blue sky and sunshine, and at this time the south-easterly wind dies down as do the summer crowds, which means more space to spread your towel on popular beaches like Camps Bay and Clifton.
The city’s iconic Table Mountain is now one of the Seven Wonders of Nature. With various hiking trails and picnic spots, as well as breath taking views from the summit, Table Mountain should be high on the list of any nature enthusiast.
However, if hiking or climbing to the summit sounds a bit intimidating, why not take the Table Mountain Cable Way and enjoy 360 degree panoramic views of the city and surrounding regions while suspended high in the sky.
