No picture of Cape Town is complete without the iconic Table Mountain in the background. The city bowl lies in a natural amphitheatre, bordered by Table Bay on one side and hugged by Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, Signal Hill and Devil’s Peak. Cape Town city centre may be small but it is home to a vibrant history and culture; as well as many fine shops and restaurants. It holds many attractions for any traveller and is well worth deeper exploration on a guided tour. Historic and modern architecture sit side by side, with colonial buildings, residential and business properties resting next to each other. The V&A Waterfront is an extremely popular dining shopping and entertainment complex that also offers luxury accommodation.
The awe-inspiring Table Mountain has deservedly been recognised as a New7Wonder of the World. The spectacular view from the flat top of the mountain has been described as “one of the most epic in Africa”. In addition to the awesome view, it is home to abundant local fauna and is part of the Cape Floral Region, which has been protected as a World Heritage Site. The most common ways to ascend the mountain are either by hiking to the top, recommended for people with moderate fitness, or by the Cable Way. The Cable Way cars give spectacular 360˚ view on the way up and a journey up or down is not to be missed. No visitor to Cape Town can miss a tour of this fantastic sight.
