Le Cap

Surrounded by rugged dramatic mountains, Cape Town is a holidaymaker’s dream location. As the second most populous city after Johannesburg, Cape Town is the most popular international tourist destination not only in South Africa, but Africa as a whole.

It’s easy to see why! The city is a combination of stunning natural backdrops in a modern setting that really does have something for everyone.

And when it comes to extreme sports you won’t find a better destination. You can trek to the highest peaks or hike through the spectacular Table Mountain National Park and Signal Hill for panoramas of the City Bowl.

There’s also a range of trails for mountain bikers of all levels, from Contermanskloof Farm and Jonkershoek to Tokai Forest and Helderberg. The views, lush greenery and vast open space will make you wish you could stay forever.

Talking of panoramas why not enjoy a bird’s eye view of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. From this unique vantage point you’ll get to see all it has to offer. And how you explore it from the air is up to you. You can opt for a paragliding flight off the Lion’s Head or Signal Hill, or skydive from a plane at 10,000ft. That’ll get your heart racing!

For those of you closer to nature can observe the southern right whales, humpback whales and Bryde’s whales from June to November. The best spots to see these mysterious animals are: False Bay, Hermanus and Cape Agulhus. Want something with a bit more adrenaline? Why not go for a shark cage diving excursion to see the magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.   

The African sea life is generally very abundant with a great variety of fish, crustaceans, coral and so much more. However, this is truer still for South Africa and in particular for Cape Town. Snorkelers and scuba divers come from far and wide to explore the subaquatic world, hoping to spot a new species or notice something they’ve never seen in any other waters before.

And let’s not forget the warm sunny climate and powder sand beaches that attract surfers and kiters from around the globe. Due to the city's unique geography, it is possible to visit several different beaches in the same day, each with a different setting and atmosphere. Some of the city’s top surfing spots are Muizenberg, Milnerton Lighthouse, Big Bay, Long Beach, Llundadno and Dungeons. Each spot has its particularity and to make sure you get the most out of each spot hire an experienced surfing instructor, who will help you achieve your surfing goals.

And this is only the tip of the iceberg – there’s so much more to do, see, visit and explore!
