About Cape Town

Hike or take the cableway to the top of Table Mountain on one of Cape Town’s perfect-weather days, look out over the confluence of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans at the very southern tip of the African continent, and you’ll see why Cape Town and the surrounding area is South Africa’s most popular destination. Take your pick of beach activities, from lounging on languid Camps Bay to penguin-spotting on Boulders Beach in Simon's Town. Going back to 1666, the Castle of Good Hope is South Africa's oldest building, covering the nation's Dutch history. Robbins Island held political prisoners starting in the 17th century, but most visitors know it as Nelson Mandela's home for 18 years. (Ex-prisoners often give the tours, answering questions about life on the island.) Over the past decade, wine-tasting in the romantic Cape Winelands has become a popular day trip for adults, while kids enjoy the brightly painted Bo-Kaap Muslim quarter or the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden. Every possible budget is catered to in Cape Town, from central boutique hostels to luxurious ocean view hotels.

Popular Attractions in Cape Town

Table Mountain
4.6/5

Mountain
Table Mountain is a landmark in Cape Town. The top of the mountain is as flat as a table. It seems to be flattened with a knife, so it is also called the dining table of God. On the right side of Table Mountain is Lion's Head Mountain and Signal Hill, and on the left is the Devil's Peak. Every year, a large amount of water vapor rises to the top of the mountain after encountering Table Mountain, and then forms a spectacular cloud under the action of cold air. It is like a whole piece of tablecloth covering the entire Table Mountain, and the scenery is very beautiful.
