Activities and Attractions in and around Cape Town


Beaches
Cape Town beaches have soft, white sand, great surrounding scenery and mountainous backdrops. There are a number of beaches to choose from, and you soon realise that you are very spoiled by the selection of spectacular, top class beaches.

Table Mountain
Table Mountain is the definitive symbol of Cape Town and it dominates all photographs of the Mother City. It is poised to become one of the New 7 Natural Wonders of the World. One has the option of either walking or taking the cableway up Table Mountain.

Robben Island
Where from the 17th to the 20th century served as a place of banishment isolation and imprisonment. Today it is a World Heritage site and Museum. South Africa’s first black President, Mr Nelson Mandela, was imprisoned there for 26 years.

Boulders Beach
This is home to a growing colony of the African Penguin.
Wooden walkways allow visitors to view the Penguins in their natural habitat and the children will love them and their antics.

Seal Island
This is a tiny isle found a mere 6km off the shores of the northern beaches of False Bay and is home to large numbers of the Cape Fur Seals; promising a real treat especially for the children visiting the island. The African penguin as well as a fantastic number of aquatic birds can also be seen on the island. Seal Island is also prominent because the waters surrounding it are known to be infested with the Great White Shark, which happens to be the biggest predator of the Cape Fur Seal.

Cape Point Nature Reserve
Cape Point or the Cape of Good Hope is the most South Western tip of Africa. It is a place well known for treacherous seas and where the cold Beguela current on the West Coast and the warm Agulhus current on the East coast merge.

Castle of Good Hope
The Castle of Good Hope is the oldest building in South Africa, built between 1666 and 1679 by the Dutch East India Company. This pentagonal fortification replaced a small clay and timber fort built in 1652 by Commander Jan van Riebeeck, founder of the maritime replenishment station at the Cape of Good Hope.

Greenmarket Square
Situated in Cape Town city centre, this is one of Cape Town’s oldest and most popular markets. The cobbled stone square has a wide variety of African curios, clothing, candles and speciality stands.  There are restaurants and cafes that surround the square if you wish to rest your feet and take a break from your shopping.

Winelands
Lover or not, a visit to the Cape Winelands is a must. The winelands are divided into various different regions, each offering their own ‘Wine Route’. The most popular and well known are Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Wellington and Paarl.
