CAPE TOWN

In 1652 Jan van Riebeeck sailed into Table Bay and laid the foundations of South Africa's oldest city. With its  majestic Table Mountain backdrop, Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

An eclectic mix of architectural styles reflects the tastes and dictates of the past - and the more functional demands of  the 20th century. The city's Edwardian and Victorian buildings have been meticulously preserved, and many outstanding examples of Cape Dutch architecture are found in the city and its environs. Cobblestoned streets, mosques and the flat-roofed  pastel homes of the Malay Quarter enhance a cosmopolitan ambience.
The  Republic's oldest city nestling beneath Table Mountain (1086-m) - is noted for its fine monuments and historical buildings

Take a trip to the top of Table Mountain and you will be rewarded with the most breathtaking panoramas imaginable - The thrill of a lifetime and an experience you will remember long after your holiday is over!
A journey by cable car to the summit... dassies (rock rabbits) and wild flowers... a restaurant, and magnificent views all make for a memorable trip up the mountain

Cape Town's shopping options invite you to endlessly browse - and buy. Elegant shopping malls, department stores, antique shops and art galleries abound. Specialist boutiques in Long Street and the narrow little alleys intersecting it offer an enticing array of unusual articles not obtainable elsewhere.
