Cape Town, the provincial capital of the Western Cape, is a uniquely beautiful city surrounded by rugged peaks, superb wine estates and pretty swimming beaches
The most popular travel focus in South Africa, Cape Town also ranks among the most scenic and rewarding cities anywhere in the world. Founded in 1652, it is the oldest settlement in South Africa, and the CBD – dotted with historic parks, buildings, and museums – has a magnificent harbourfront setting overlooked by the bastion of Table Mountain. South of the city centre, the dramatic Cape Peninsula is lined with characterful small towns and serene beaches set below a wild mountainous spine that terminates 60 kilometres away at the sheer cliffs of Cape Point.
