A stay in Cape Town is an absolute must for any visitor to South Africa. With Table Mountain providing a magnificent backdrop and set on a peninsula of soaring, rocky heights and lush valleys, this city is blessed with immense natural beauty, and the fast pace and bright lights of a great urban centre meld effortlessly.
Capital of the Western Cape Province, it is often known as the 'Mother City'. It is rich in history, with a fascinating blend of old an new cultures. With turquoise coastlines and lush wine regions just around the corner, Cape Town is a gem waiting to be discovered.
Warmed by the African sun, Cape Town's climate is typically Mediterranean, caressed by its warm dry heat in summer and moist wet winters.
