Tourist Places In Cape Town

The places to visit in Cape Town are many and they are dynamic. The ones you should keep in your plan depend on the kind of traveller you are. If you want a quiet romantic holiday with your loved one, go for the beaches. For adventure and excitement, head towards the national parks and hilly areas. And for a neat urban vacation, visit the Cape Town sightseeing spots in the city itself. You can try one or all and none of them will ever disappoint you.

Honeymoon Destinations in Cape Town

Uncanny as it sounds, Cape Town is a perfect destination to plan your honeymoon around. Starting from St James, Muizenberg, Kalk Bay and penguin-crowded Boulders Beach along the warm waters of Indian Ocean to the Camps Bay, Hout Bay and Clifton Beaches of Atlantic, there is simply no dearth of Cape Town destinations to plan a romantic seaside holiday. The various vine estates of Cape Winelands are also perfect for your honeymoon. What’s better than having specialised, candlelit dinners with your newlywed, with the best wines of the country as icing on top. For the adventurous lot, there are hiking trails up the Table Mountain, Lion’s Head or the Chapman’s Peak.

Nature Parks in Cape Town

Cape Town is dotted with numerous nature parks, full of native flora and fauna all around. The Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden with its wide range of blooming beauty, Table Mountain National Park around the magnificent peak, Tygerberg Natural Reserve, West Coast National Park are only some of many.

Other than these, here are the top 5 Cape Town attractions that must be there on your itinerary.

1. Table Mountain

Table Mountain is undoubtedly the prime Cape Town tourist attraction, towering over the city like a guardian angel. From the flat crest of the peak at 1086 metres, one can get the most spectacular view of the city of Cape Town in one side and the sparkling Blue Atlantic Ocean all around the rest. You can hike the distance, or go for the exciting cable car ride with 360°C views.

2. Robben Island

Located off the shore of Table Bay, Robben Island is famous for housing a notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela, Father of the Nation of South Africa, and a military base and hospital. Now it is a historic destination to see on your trip to Cape Town, preceded by a ferry ride from the V&A Waterfront. Here you will also find the Nelson Mandela Gateway and a museum about the Island’s history.

3. Boulders Beach

Other than the azure blue water dotted with platforms of boulders and a long strip of warm white sand, the thing Boulders Beach is most well known for is the waddles of penguins that can be seen here. In 1982, a penguin couple landed here and now more than 2000 of their descendants call the beach their home. There is hardly any other warm climate beach in the world where you can swim and see penguins on a regular basis together. Be sure not to touch them, and only see them from a distance as they too deserve their space.

4. Victoria and Alfred Waterfront

The waterfront from where ferries for Robben Island leave is an important Cape Town point of interest in itself. With excellent views of the Atlantic, Table Bay and Table Mountain, the harbour is named after Empress Victoria and her son Alfred who laid the cornerstone for the place in the 1860s. Now it is a hub for local tourism dotted with shops, art galleries, restaurants, pubs, live amphitheatre and ship museum among other things.

5. Castle of Good Hope

Pentagon-shaped Castle of Good Hope is the oldest standing building of South Africa, and thus one of the most important Cape Town attractions. The building represents the history and origin of the city, as the castle was built by Dutch East India Company for their business purpose. Now it houses a Military Museum and Iziko Museum, telling stories of the city’s past.

      We had a wonderful time in South Africa, Cape Town especially. Perfect execution on field as it was planned by Flyocity. I highly recommend Flyocity for the trip of South Africa, especially Inderjeet who was extremely supportive in planning the trip and even during the trip also.

    • Trip to South Africa

      We had seen their earlier reviews and booked M K Holidays through travel triangle for our honeymoon tour to south africa. They have arranged it extremely well. Every promises have been catered to. All the guides (they were drivers too) were extremely knowledgeable and experienced. They were polite, punctual and reliable. The itinerary was very well structured. We covered most of the places and things to do, leaving a few, because of weather conditions. The cars arranged for us were very well maintained. Overall, we were absolutely satisfied and looking forward to our next interaction. One very small thing was, few information regarding our tour was delayed till the last moment. Although everything was perfectly arranged, but sharing the information well ahead in time would save us from the anxiety before our travel. The Bamboos (Guest House) was booked for us for three days stay at Knysna. However, you cannot expect a 4 star comfort at Bamboos like the other hotels but it has a different taste of its own with a homely peaceful atmosphere with a well equipped kitchen inside the room. However, we personally enjoyed this different stay at The Bamboos at Knysna.

    • Trip to South Africa

      While I found manoj ji a very nice and always accomodating person, I was not at all impressed by his management. Here is my pros and cons Pros: 1. Very well versed with the SA market 2. Provided very nice recommendations 3. Definitely will give a good price Cons 1. His management is not good 2. You have to chase him for getting the things done despite regular calling 3. He will forget to get the booking done- our hotel was not booked until the day we reached there. This really pissed me off

    FAQ's of Cape Town

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    The best time to visit Cape Town is from late January to April, when the summer has just ended and the dry winter is yet to come.

    Hout Bay, Clifton Beaches and Camps Bay Beaches are the nearest and most visited in and around Cape Town.

    Cape Town International Airport is 20 minutes out of the city in normal traffic. One can hire cabs, shuttles or avail the MyCiti bus rapid transit system that links the airport with the city centre.

    By flight it takes only a little more than 2 hours to reach Johannesburg, and there are plenty of carriers every day. By road, it is a much longer journey of 13 hours 40 minutes or so. There are trains which take around 10-11 hours.

    The common languages spoken in Cape Town are English and Afrikaans. The people involved in tourism are usually English-spoken.
