Cape Town
The City of Cape Town, according to the UK’s Daily Express is ` where it is all happening on the African continent.’

In the sustained build-up to the 2010 Soccer World Cup and the wave of global tourism, the Cape Town city centre is transforming into a seriously stylish, cosmopolitan residential and tourist hub.

You’ll notice that more and more people are buying and renting trendy loft apartments, city studios or apartments in the majestic embrace of Table Mountain.

The sheer convenience and the superb setting has turned Cape Town into a global magnet – people meeting, eating and chilling out at home or hanging out at one of Cape Town’s uber-trendy eateries, cafes, bistros, rustic restaurants, boutiques and beaches.

Overlooking historic Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for so many years - and the world famous V&A Waterfront - Cape Town is a haven for those discerning souls eager to explore a rich, diverse world of rustic and cosmopolitan lifestyle choices, investment opportunities and life-changing experiences. Here are just a few awesome Cape Town experiences you can’t afford to miss!

Robben Island
Experience unique, unforgettable Robben Island, one of the most powerful universal symbols of the triumph of the human spirit over enormous hardship and adversity.

For nearly 400 years, Robben Island, a few kilometres off the Cape Town coast, was a place of banishment, exile, isolation and imprisonment. It was here that rulers sent those they regarded as political troublemakers, social outcasts and the outcasts of society.

Those imprisoned on the Island succeeded on a psychological and political level in turning a prison 'hell-hole' into an international symbol of freedom and liberation.

The V&A Waterfront
Experience South Africa’s famous V&A Waterfront, drawing more tourists currently than anywhere else in the country. The Waterfront hosts Cape Town’s world famous Two Oceans Aquarium.

With over 400 stores the V&A Waterfront also caters to all your shopping needs in a huge range that will suit any budget or taste. It's sumptuous blend of Victorian architecture, maritime tradition, and African culture ensures a shopping environment that is lively and cosmopolitan. You can browse among international and local designer boutiques, jewellery showrooms, art galleries, live, local entertainment, African craft and lifestyle stores.

The Township Tour
Experience real Africa on one of the most haunting excursions of your Cape Town trip - perhaps of your life – a visit to the impoverished sprawl of Khayelitsha – where the vibe is alive, musical, culinary and electric and the local community couldn’t be friendlier or more inviting. For security reasons do not do this tour alone. Make sure an accredited community tour guide accompanies you.

Table Mountain
Travel to the top of one of South Africa’s major icons, the majestic, towering Table Mountain. Arrive at the Table Mountain heritage site – poised regally at 1085 meters above sea level - draped with the classic tablecloth cloud, offering breathtaking views of the glorious peninsula and gently enfolding the City of Cape Town in its towering embrace.

Without doubt, the best views of Cape Town are seen from the top of Table Mountain. The Cableway takes you to the summit in under 10 minutes and the rotating gondola ensures that all passengers get a 360 degree aerial view of the city on the way up and down.

Cape Point
Experience the most south-westerly point of Africa. Breathe the freshest air in the world – straight from the Antarctic, where the cold Benguela current on the West coast and the warm Agulhas current on the East coast merge. The circumnavigation of the Cape of Good Hope led to a sea route to the East and subsequent trade around the point now located in the Table Mountain National Park and classified as a World Heritage Site. It also led to 26 recorded shipwrecks in the vicinity. It’s a Bird watcher's paradise – at least 250 species – and home to Africa’s southernmost primate, the mischievous Chacma baboon and approximately 1 100 indigenous plant species, some of which occur nowhere else on earth
