With formidable Table Mountain as its backdrop, and show-stopping views to the Atlantic, it’s no wonder Cape Town garners so much attention.
But aside from basking in the most stunning of locations, Cape Town is wonderfully cosmopolitan and provides a stylish punctuation mark in an African itinerary. For bracing sea air, and some of the best restaurants in the world, your first port of call is of course the harbour, but for authentic city buzz, you’re best to head to the city bowl.
Want to add some more glamour to your itinerary? Hire a sports car and drive along the Cape Peninsula, or hop in a helicopter to the Winelands.
