About Cape Town

Sitting in the shadow of Table Mountain, nestled against Africa's southern coast off the South Atlantic, Cape Town is a pristine example of the coming-together of different landscapes, cultures and cuisines and offers the traveler a perfect and picturesque opportunity to really explore.

Take a hike up the infamous mountain or one of its surrounding and equally beautiful peaks, then paraglide or abseil your way back down. Don't fancy the altitude, learn to surf, dive with Great White sharks or head out whale watching

Enjoy the long stretches of white sand and the get your tan on at the beach or head into the wine regions of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek to sample some of the areas finest produce.

The diverse culinary experiences on offer at every turn make dining in the Cape a pleasure. With a heavy focus on meat, this is a carnivores dream and a must try local delicacy is Biltong, but you should also try Bobotie, Boerewors, Bunny Chow and Chakalaka among other things.

Heading further afield, witness the Garden Route unfolding as you take in the awe inspiring scenery on a coastal drive or mountain pass.

With temperatures ranging from 7°C to the high 20's, and with mirrored seasons, this is a perfect place to visit when the UK weather is just depressing, and with little to no time difference, its easy to get there and back without suffering jet lag.

With so much to do and see in this incredible place from the mountains to the surf plus Robin Island for a piece of history, it has to be on everyone's bucket list so why not book your next trip now.
