Cape Town is the second largest city in South Africa and is the capital of the Western Cape Province. Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. Slowly rotating cable cars climb to the mountain’s flat top, from which there are sweeping views of the city, the busy harbor and boats heading for Robben Island, the notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela, which is now a living museum.

It is located in the south-west corner of the country near the Cape of Good Hope, and is the most southern city in Africa. It is a stone’s throw from South Africa’s world-famous Cape Winelands around Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek. The Cape Town metropolitan area covers a large area, from Durbanville and Somerset West in the east to Cape Point in the south and Atlantis in the north. The city centre is located in a relatively small area between Table Mountain and Table Bay.

Bo-Kaap located on a hill south-west of downtown, is the area historically inhabited by mainly Muslim descendants of slaves from South-East Asia. The Castle of Good Hope is South Africa’s oldest surviving building. It was built between 1666 and 1679. Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is one of the worlds most stunning gardens in possibly the most stunning location set below the Castle Bustress cliffs of table mountain.

Robben Island is located just off the coast from Cape Town, this was the location used during the apartheid days to hold political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela and the late Walter Sisulu. wo Oceans Aquarium has an extensive series of events calender for each month. Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is a huge shopping and entertainment area at the slopes of Table Mountain, next to the harbour. It is very popular with tourists.
