Activities and Attractions
Cape Town Metropolitan area
The area between Table Mountain and Hottentots Holland comprises the Cape Town Metropole and encompasses pulsating cosmopolitan city life, beach playgrounds, forests and exquisite nature parks. It is about 20km from us.
Cape Town's most famous landmark - a quick spin by revolving cable car to the 1,086m summit will give the visitor a grand view of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and of course the equally famous South African Alcatraz, Robben Island. 20km from us.
The Famous V & A Waterfront
The most visited attraction in Cape Town is the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront with its assortment of shopping, eating, entertainment and sightseeing facilities, all set within a working harbor. 20km from us.
The V & A Waterfront is also the gateway to Robben Island, a former prison (now national monument) where a visit is an emotional journey echoing with the sorrows of stalwarts o the struggle against apartheid. The island was home to many of South Africa’s freedom fighters including Nelson Mandela.
The oldest surviving building in South Africa, and well preserved too, is the Castle of Good Hope, the pentagonal fortress built by personnel of the Dutch East India Company back in the 1660s – 70s. Today it houses the regional headquarters of the South African Defense Force in the Western Cape, and a military museum.
A stop at Cape Point gives the visitor the opportunity to boast of having been at the most southern point of the Cape Peninsula. Some 26 shipwrecks have been recorded at Cape Point, some of them presenting good diving spots. A funicular takes visitors on scenic trips to an old lighthouse and the spot is a bird watchers paradise. 40km from us.
Township tours will remind the tourist how the will to survive can overcome any adversity. In Guguletu and Langa expect to be overwhelmed by hospitality, informal roadside traders, rowdy taverns serving local beer and toe-tapping jazz. Guided tours are recommended to get to most out of the experience. 20 km from us.
