Welcome to the Mother City… Cape Town, South Africa! This property is well located so that you may access the sights of Cape Town, many restaurants, pubs, and shops, all within a safe and short walk from your 5 star hotel!
Today we will take a difficult trip down South Africa’s past. We will tour Robben Island (where Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years in prison), The District Six Museum for a better understanding of the history of apartheid, and our personal favorite, a visit and walk through the Langa and Gugulethu townships to see how modern life is still impacted by the system of apartheid.
Taste of Cape Town Experience – We will explore the farmers’ markets today! If you’re a foodie and enjoy sampling food at the markets, this is for you! (do yourself a favor and only have a light breakfast.)
Today we will visit Table Mountain.
Today will be a full day! The highlights will be a visit to the Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Beach & Penguin Colony, and the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens.
Today we will take a private biking tour through the city. We’ll cycle through all of the places you’ve heard about, including Bo-Kaap, The Company Gardens, and more!
Today will be a free day to grab some additional souvenirs, and prepare to fly back home!
Cape Town (Afrikaans: Kaapstad; [ˈkɑːpstat], Xhosa: iKapa, Khoekhoe: //Hui !gaeb) is the second-most populous city in South Africa, after Johannesburg, and also the legislative capital of South Africa.
Colloquially named the Mother City, it is the largest city of the Western Cape province and forms part of the City of Cape Town metropolitan municipality. The Parliament of South Africa is situated in Cape Town. The other two capitals are located in Gauteng (Pretoria the executive capital where the Presidency is based) and in the Free State (Bloemfontein the judicial capital where the Supreme Court of Appeal is located). The city is known for its harbour, for its natural setting in the Cape Floristic Region, and for landmarks such as Table Mountain and Cape Point. Cape Town is home to 49% of the Western Cape’s population. The city was named the World Design Capital for 2014 by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design.
In 2014, Cape Town was named the best place in the world to visit by both The New York Times and The Daily Telegraph. Cape Town has also been a host city for both the 1995 Rugby World Cup and 2010 FIFA World Cup, and annually hosts the Africa leg of the World Rugby 7s.
Located on the shore of Table Bay, Cape Town, as the oldest urban area in the Western Cape, it was developed by the Dutch East India Company (VOC) as a supply station for Dutch ships sailing to East Africa, India, and the Far East. Jan van Riebeeck‘s arrival on 6 April 1652 established the VOC Cape Colony, the first permanent European settlement in South Africa. Cape Town outgrew its original purpose as the first European outpost at the Castle of Good Hope, becoming the economic and cultural hub of the Cape Colony. Until the Witwatersrand Gold Rush and the development of Johannesburg, Cape Town was the largest city in South Africa.
