MAGICAL CAPE TOWN
Why Visit Magical Cape Town? By
People often ask me why we keep returning year after year to Cape
Town and my answer is always the same, because we’ve not seen
“A world in one country” is the way South Africa is often described,
but this statement can so easily be attributed to Cape Town alone.
Cape Town is one of the top destinations world-wide for vacations
these days and now that South Africa has managed 10 years with
relative stability and economic growth, people are rushing to take a
look at this magnificent city.
Based in the Southern Hemisphere, its summer months are those of
December, January and February; the winter months, June, July and
August. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the destination
for winter warmth is second to none.
What can you expect to see and do?
Mountains and sea dominate the landscape and shape Cape Town’s
One of the first ports of call is Table Mountain, which fills the
skyline with its impressive edifice and flat-topped surface.
Everywhere you go in Cape Town is in the shadow of the Mountain,
whose face changes as the sun moves around – it’s something you
never get bored of.
In the Waterfront, life teems with award winning restaurants, shops,
entertainment, education and accommodation, all amongst a working
harbour and docks. Brightly coloured fishing boats, jostle with
cruise ships, such as The World.
Life on the ocean wave means boating, surfing, kite surfing,
water-skiing, rock pools or just paddling. The sandy, white beaches
stretch all the way along two coasts, one on the Indian Ocean, one
on the Atlantic Ocean, with something to occupy everyone.
Animal life abounds, both in the wild and in more structured
environments. The Two Oceans Aquarium in the Waterfront offers
glimpses of the diverse life found off the South African coastline.
Down in the harbour, the seals lounge around in the sun,
entertaining the visitors. Bird life is spectacular, from Egrets,
Pelicans, Terns, Oyster Catchers, through to Flamingo’s and birds of
Away from the coast, wonderful inland towns such as Stellenbosch
support a unique wine route, with hundreds of different wine
estates. The Cape Dutch houses, with beautiful furniture and an
insight into a life no longer with us, bring a whole new meaning to
the word museum, whilst tasting of the wines produced on these
estates bring us firmly back into the modern day.
Busy holidays, lazy holidays, a combination of the two – all are on
offer in this magical place,
whilst the sun shines down with benevolence on a world in one
