Cape Town flaunts its natural beauty with pride. As a result, it is the most visited city in South Africa. Known as the mother city, it is steeped in history, with breathtaking scenery. A coming-together of cultures, cuisines and landscapes, a singularly beautiful city crowned by the magnificent Table Mountain National Park. The botanical gardens beckon from its slopes, and the city’s long blonde beaches, are some of South Africa’s best. Sunlight, filtered by the mountain range or clouds, or reflected by the sea, varies from azure blue to stormy grey. This, in particular, gives Cape Town its unique quality of light. It is rich in color and contrast.
Above all, it’s a city of determined pioneers – from the Afrikaner descendants of the original Dutch colonists and the majority coloured community to the descendants of European Jewish immigrants and more recent Xhosa (isiXhosa) migrants from the Eastern Cape. They all bring unique flavors to Cape Town’s rich melting pot. As the oldest European settlement in Africa, Cape Town has a rich and at times, turbulent past. Nelson Mandela was incarcerated at Robben Island for 18 years.
Along the rugged coast, scenic drives slice into mountains that plunge to the sea. African penguins waddle on the white, sandy beaches. At the same time, Cape Point is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the richest floral kingdoms in the world.
