Cape Town Travel Directory

General Information

Nicknamed the "Mother City", Cape Town is situated in the Western Cape Province of South Africa and is the recipient of hundreds of travel awards.  It is spectacularly beautiful, culturally diverse, endlessly exciting - Cape Town is the jewel of Africa.

Cape Town is the oldest city in South Africa and has a cultural heritage spanning over 300 years. It also has the top five national attractions in South Africa that should appear on every visitor’s itinerary. Between Cape Dutch homesteads, traditional dancers with painted faces performing in the streets, the smell of spicy Malay cooking and the taste of a well-made wine, this city will fill your senses.

Boasting three world heritage sites: Table Mountain National Park, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the famous Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.

Most of the Western Cape’s industry is located within the metropolitan area of Cape Town. It is a culturally diverse and dynamic metropolis set among beautiful beaches and winelands with a backdrop of the iconic Table Mountain​.

The city shares with Cairo the title of most-visited African destination; the Soccer World Cup boosted this status to such an extent that British Airways put on an extra daily flight to the city from London.

The Port of Cape Town is ideally situated at the crossroads of some of the world’s most important trade routes, making the transport, maritime and logistics sectors very important. Bunkering and ship repair and the boat repair and boat building industries are on the rise. The port plays a major role in exporting the province’s fruit, wine and other agricultural products to international markets.

While walking through the city’s streets and meeting its people, you will fall in love with its natural beauty, creative freedom and incredible spirit. Cape Town is a city where the unexpected is always just around the corner and the beautiful province of the Western Cape lies ready to be explored across the city border.
