Cape Town Holidays
Down at the southern end of Africa, the continent is anchored by this unique city. Rapidly becoming one of the ‘must visit’ destinations in the world, Cape Town holidays are a hard-to-beat experience: sightsee in the morning, hike up the mountain in the afternoon and cool off in the evening by taking in a stunning Cape sunset washed down with a world-class local wine and delicious meal.
In fact, those who are prepared to be a more bit more adventurous will be rewarded by those little, out-of-the-way spots where you can enjoy your own piece of Cape splendour – discover the old fishing village of Kalk Bay or the penguin colony at Boulders Beach.
Naturally there’s a full range of Cape Town accommodation to suit all your needs, whether you’re a regular visitor and want a place that feels like home or a newlywed couple looking to celebrate romance. For parents who want a place to stay that not only caters for children but makes the grown-ups feel like they’re on holiday too, a Cape Town family holiday will be what you’re looking for.
People love the energy, vibe and multicultural mix that define this special place but speak to the locals, step off the beaten path and your Cape Town holiday will be immeasurably enriched.
The best time to visit Cape Town may be influenced by your interests – there are different seasons for the perfect African beach holiday, whale watching or to see the carpets of wild flowers.
Guided day tours are always a convenient way of exploring a city and its surrounds although Cape Town is really easy and accessible enough for you to do it on your own if you feel adventurous and have time.
And while Cape Town defines the region, the Western Cape is a widespread area with a treasure-trove of rivers, mountains, art, food and people that’ll keep you coming back for more.
Cape Town holidays combine well with a South Africa safari and other African destinations – it’s so easy to experience South Africa’s wildlife and its urban jungles.
The city is a natural stop for many of the overland tours, but there are plenty of options for golf-enthusiasts, whale-watchers, people who want to see the Garden Route … and so much more.
A holiday in Cape Town will never be long enough. So read all you can, quickly … there’s lots to do.
