A holiday destination to discover
Cape Town is synonymous not only with a rich flora and fauna, but also an abundant choice of things to see and do. Hardly any other city in the world offers such a perfect blend of fun, excitement and adventure. Not only connoisseurs of South African wine, but also sports enthusiasts such as golfers, mountain bikers, racing cyclists and surfers will certainly not be bored here.
Table Mountain, the city’s landmark, peaks at 3562 feet (1086 m) and affords spectacular panoramic views of the city with its lovely beaches and green spaces. It is the starting point of numerous hiking trails and can be reached by cable car. It is not uncommon to encounter animals, such as antelopes, African penguins, chacma baboons and large marine mammals, even near the city centre. South Africa also boasts eighteen national parks making it a top safari destination. Not only animals but also the beautiful landscape of South Africa can be admired at the Cape of Good Hope and on the Garden Route. For the latter it is best to plan a few days.
