Cape Town is a place where old and new blend together - it's African and yet European, a truly cosmopolitan city. Warmed by the African sun and dominated
by flat-topped Table Mountain, the city is set on a peninsula of sandy beaches, rocky precipices and lush valleys. Firmly positioned on the international
map, Cape Town offers the bright city lights of theatres, fine dining and a bustling working waterfront.
Set out on foot to discover the Cape Floral Kingdom on display in Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, photograph the colourful, historic houses in the Malay Quarter, catch a boat to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for so many years or indulge in some retail therapy at the famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. There is something for everyone in Cape Town.
