Popularly known as “The Mother City” Cape Town features a never-ending list of fascinating things to do for the keen tourists. From hiking Table Mountain (one of the new 7 wonders of nature) to relish shopping at South Africa’s most renowned shopping centers (V &A Waterfront), the list of things to do in Cape Town simply goes on. Here in this post I’ve compiled a list of things to add in your Cape Town travel package.
Visit the Kristenbosch Botanical Gardens:
The combination of unique flora and wonderful location make these 52,800 square kilometer botanical gardens amongst the most prettiest in the planet. In 2015, the beautiful garden has been awarded as ‘International Garden of the Year’ by the International Garden Tourism Awards Body. About 9000 of South Africa’s 22,000 plant species can be found here.
Cape of Good Hope:
Also, known as Cape Point, this 77.50 square kilometer section of Table Mountain National Park encompasses incredible scenery, superb walks, beautiful birdwatching and often isolated beaches. Some 250 bird species have been spotted here, encompassing cormorants and a family of ostriches.
Hike the Table Mountain:
For that sweeping & expansive views of Cape town, a trip to Table Mountain is a must. If you want some real exercise, consider a 2 hour trek to Table Mountain’s peak. However, if you are one of those faint hearted tourists, you can consider the aerial way (cable car) to reach at the peak.
Go for the peninsula tour from Cape Town:
A full-day Peninsula tour will take travelers around the whole Cape peninsula and show them the wonders of Cape Town – from the immaculate beaches, to the awe-inspiring view of Cape Point, where the ocean meets.
Take a trip to the historic Robben Island:
The function of this island has changed over the last few years, but is mostly known for its past use of being a political prison house throughout South Africa’s apartheid. This Unesco World Heritage Site is preserved as a memorial to Nelson Mandela (former president of South Africa) who spent several years incarcerated here.
Visit Muizenberg Beach:
When you are in the South Peninsula, ensure you visit Muizenberg Beach. The famous sandy shoreline is a major spot for surfing and boasts those popular color changing booths that emerges in several Cape Town related tourism pictures.
Go Shark diving in Gansbaai:
Just 2 hours drive from Cape Town, Gansbaai is renowned as the Great White Shark capital of the world. There is no better way to discover the water than by a face-to-face encounter with the frightening yet lovely creature of the sea.
