Cape Town’s largest shopping centre, Canal Walk, which has more than 400 shops and restaurants, is within easy walking distance
At the foot of the vast continent of Africa is Cape Town, South Africa’s mother city. Cape Town, is set in dramatic landscape of exquisite natural beauty, nestled between the majestic Table Mountain and sea, and is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Cape Town has so much to offer as a tourist destination. It is blessed to have South Africa’s top 6 tourist attractions within one-hour drive of the city centre: the breath-taking Table Mountain – easily accessed on the cable car; the emotional and inspiring trip out to Robben Island; the Waterfront with its vibrant retail and entertainment areas; and a lazy day sampling world-class food and wine in the beautiful Winelands. The drive along the Peninsula to Cape Point has few international rivals and boasts some of the Cape’s best seaside restaurants. And last but not least is Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens on the slopes of Table Mountain. Kirstenbosch is a wonderful showcase of the unique diversity of South Africa’s flora, especially the world-renowned fynbos of the Cape Floral Kingdom.
