About Cape Town

The city is known for its harbour and for its natural setting on the Cape Floristic Region, and for the landmarks as Table Mountain and Cape Point. It is one of the most multicultural cities in the world and has been named the best place to visit.

Cape Town is not only a popular international tourist destination in South Africa but Africa as a whole. This is due to its mild climate, natural setting and a well-developed infrastructure. The city has several well-known natural features that attract tourists, the most notable feature is Table Mountain. Reaching the top of the mountain can either be done by hiking, or on the Cableway. Many tourists also visit the beaches, and due to the city's unique geography, it is possible to visit several beaches on the same day, each with a different setting and atmosphere. Though the Cape's water ranges from cold to mild, the difference between the two sides of the city is dramatic as this is where the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean meet.

The city itself has several notable cultural attractions and is noted for its architectural heritage. The city also encloses the 36 hectare Kirstenbosch National Botanical garden that contains protected natural forest and fynbos along with a variety of animals and birds.
