What not to miss in Cape Town
Table Mountain is now protected by a National Park which covers three quarters of the peninsula from Table Mountain itself to Cape Point. The best time to visit the mountain is early in the morning or later in the evening as once it’s covered in clouds (known as the tablecloth), visibility can be quite poor. If you’re feeling fit, there are more than 300 different routes up and down the mountain. However, take care with the weather conditions as hiking can be dangerous when the weather closes in as the mountain is over 1000 metres high.
Most visitors chose to take a Cable Car to the summit – the views from the top are simply spectacular and look out for the native Dassie which resembles an oversized gerbil! One of Cape Town’s most notorious and popular attractions is Robben Island where its prison was home to many black political freedom fighters including Nelson Mandela. Robben Island is now a World Heritage protected area and a tour to the island offers a glimpse of life under apartheid rule. For some great shopping, dining and nightlife, head to the V&A Waterfront with its beautifully restored buildings and a superb choice of shops including boutique and craft shops.
It is also home to the Two Oceans Aquarium and Maritime Museum and a great selection of cafes and restaurants. Just a 45 minute drive from Cape Town are the beautiful Wineland regions of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. There are numerous Cellar tours and historic Wine Estates where you can enjoy a day of wine tasting or even better, spend a few days exploring the winelands, the superb restaurants and the stunning rolling countryside.
