Cape Town Attractions
Cape Town is the second largest city in South Africa and is the capital of the Western Cape Province, as well as being the legislative capital of South Africa (the Houses of Parliament are here). 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.
Kalk Bay is one of Cape Town’s trendiest seaside villages and reflects a cosmopolitan heritage and a long fishinghistory. There is a bohemian arty vibe, a growing nightlife, with great theatre and the art, architecture and cuisine are much sought after.
Camps Bay Beach
One of Cape Town’s most popular spots for summer beach activities. From general sun bathing to volley ball, promotions and beauty contests. Also to be noted are the great sea fronting restaurants and bars on the Camps Bay promenade. Whether looking for a gourmet dining experience or to join the celebs in one of the many sizzling cocktail bars, you’re sure to be entertained.
Signal Hill is a prominent landmark from which the historic noon gun is fired, and forms the “lion’s body” for the adjacent Lion’s Head mountaintop.
Alongside Table Mountain is the distinctive shaped mountain slope, Lions Head. This proud lion overlooks the city and Table Bay on one side, and the scenic Atlantic Ocean coastline on the other. On a clear day the views are spectacular and great for taking photographs, particularly of Robben Island. Catch your breath along the steep path while admiring the great views which will inspire you to carry on further.
Table Mountain - a World Heritage Site - is one of the most photographed landmarks on the world and holds central Cape Town in her lap. The summit can be reached by trails or via cable-car. The latter was recently redesigned and revamped and boasts a revolving floor for panoramic viewing.
