Destinations / South Africa / Cape Town
With its sub-tropical weather and location in the southern tip of Africa, a Cape Town holiday is for adventure lovers looking to explore all the Western Cape has to offer.
Catch a cable car up iconic Table Mountain to see panoramic views of the city's landmarks. Visit the Two Ocean Aquarium to see ragged tooth sharks and black mussel crackers. Thrill seekers can go one step further and take the 175km trip to Gansbaii, to risk cage diving in the white shark capital of the world. See the jackass penguins waddling on Boulder beach, sample the crazy nightlife on Long Street, sipping 'klippies and coke', or savour a seafood feast of seared tuna, peri-peri prawns or yellow-tail on the V&A waterfront.
Head to Green Market square to scout for African folk art mementos, Government Avenue to peruse the museums and historic buildings, then hang with Cape Town's elite in Camp's Bay, an upmarket suburb dotted with hip oceanfront bars and restaurants. Holidays in Cape Town would not be complete without taking a day trip to the Cape Winelands to taste the offerings from some of South Africa's premier wine estates.
