Cape Town is one of the most beautifully situated and gastronomically diverse cities in the world, and no South Africa Tour would be complete without a visit! Cradled by Table Mountain, Cape Town has immense charm and historical interest, while its unique cultural blend of part African, part European and part Asian, makes for a cosmopolitan dining experience. Take the cable car or walk up Table Mountain, visit the colorful Malay quarter or meander through the wonderful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Browse through the vibrant Greenmarket Square, take a boat trip to Robben Island or simply relax on the beach. When you want to explore further, the Cape Peninsula offers one of the finest coastal drives in Africa to the Cape of Good Hope. A few days exploring Cape Town provides the perfect ending for any South Africa adventure safari tour.
Happy International Surfing Day! Today is all about celebrating the big blue and all things surfing.
Ten years ago, we would often advise our clients to spend as little time as possible in Johannesburg during their South Africa tour. Clients would stay at an airport hotel for one night before moving on to a Kruger National Park safari or the scenic vistas of Cape Town. Some guests interested in history might spend a day visiting the Apartheid Museum or take a Soweto tour, but for the most part, the largest city in South Africa (and the second largest city in Africa), received a bad rap.
