Named one of the World’s “7 Natural Wonders”, 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.
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 and ferry excursions to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.
Cape Town’s upmarket seafront suburbs are sought after for their beautiful beaches at Camps Bay and Clifton. A concert at Cape Town Stadium, a stroll though Green Point Urban Park and along Seapoint’s Promenade, or a drive to Signal Hill overlooking the city are popular seaboard experiences.
