Named one of the “7 Natural Wonders of the Modern World”, Table Mountain National Park is by far Cape Town’s most thrilling adventure. A short ride from the city bowl, a spectacular 1085m ascent via cable car to its summit affords 360-degree views of the entire Peninsula and further on a clear day.
The V&A Waterfront
A short bus trip or 30-minute walk from the hotel, the V&A Waterfront is one of the world’s largest portside centres. It boasts many attractions, from a huge shopping, cinema and restaurant complex to the Two Oceans Aquarium, the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa and ferry excursions to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, as well as a Ferris Wheel, and much more.
Cape Town’s upmarket seafront suburbs are sought after for their beautiful beaches at Camps Bay and Clifton. Concerts at Cape Town Stadium, strolling through Green Point Urban Park and along the Seapoint Promenade, or driving to Signal Hill to look over the city are popular seaboard experiences.
