Get to Know Cape Town

Cape Town has a lot to offer, from spectacular scenery that includes mountains soaring above palm-fringed beaches and rolling fields of vineyards to gourmet restaurants, fine museums and a rich cultural heritage

Cape Town’s magic lies in its diversity. In the space of one day you could get a bird’s-eye view of the city by taking the cable car to the top of Table Mountain (designated one of the new Seven Wonders of Nature), swim with penguins at Boulders Beach (or, more daringly, with great white sharks in a cage), taste wines at a centuries-old estate, eat at some of the country’s best restaurants and watch the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean with a chilled cocktail at a beachside bar.
