Things to do in Cape Town

Table Mountain

Around 600 million years old, and a canvas painted with the rich diversity of the Cape floral kingdom, Table Mountain is the most iconic symbol of Cape Town. Its famous flat top, natural beauty, and unsurpassed views of land and sea have attracted millions of visitors from around the world. You can admire the showstopper of Table Mountain National Park and one of the 'New 7 Wonders of Nature' from multiple angles, but you really can’t say you’ve visited Cape Town until you’ve stood on top of it.

Kirstenbosch Gardens

Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, location and unique flora combine to make these 5.28-sq-km botanical gardens among the most beautiful in the world. Added for the garden's centenary in 2013, the popular Tree Canopy Walkway (informally known as the 'Boomslang', meaning tree snake) is a curvaceous steel and timber bridge that rises through the trees and provides amazing views.

Robben Island Museum

Robben Island is famous, or rather infamous, as the holding place for the imprisoned Nelson Mandela. Mandela served 18 of his 27 years in prison. You can only go here on a tour, which lasts around four hours including ferry rides, departing from the Nelson Mandela Gateway beside the Clock Tower at the Waterfront. Booking online well in advance is highly recommended as tours can sell out.

Even if you don’t plan a visit to the island, it’s worth dropping by the free museum at the Nelson Mandela Gateway, with its focus on the struggle for equality. Also preserved as a small museum is the Waterfront’s Jetty 1, the departure point for Robben Island when it was a prison. More Information

The Bo-Kaap

One of Cape Town’s most distinct neighbourhoods and there’s so much to see, taste and explore. Situated at the foot of Signal Hill, on the fringe of the city centre, and formerly known as the Malay Quarter, the Bo-Kaap’s origins date back to the 1760s when numerous “huurhuisjes” (rental houses) were built and leased to slaves. To this day, the houses are a mix of Cape Dutch and Georgian architecture, in distinctive multi-coloured rows on steeply cobbled roads. The choice of colour is said to be attributed to the fact that while on lease, all the houses had to be white. When this rule was eventually lifted, and the slaves were allowed to buy the properties, all the houses were painted bright colours by their owners as an expression of their freedom. A five-minute walk from the city centre and De Waterkant and a 20-minute walk to the V&A Waterfront, the Bo-Kaap is best accessed by foot along Wale Street. Explore the Islamic “kramats” (shrines), mosques and food and craft markets, and discover the delicious Cape Malay cooking style.

Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

Named after England’s Queen Victoria and her son, Prince Alfred, the V&A Waterfront is centred around the country’s oldest working harbour. This vibrant precinct is home to a shopping centre, food and craft market, the famed Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA), an aquarium, hotels and many other attractions. More Information
