Cape Town Tourism has identified Cape Town’s Big 7 attractions – the must-see destinations and these are: Robben Island, Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront, Kirstenbosch Gardens, Cape Point, Constantia Winelands and the City Walk.
A must-do in Cape Town is the Cape Peninsula route, with the following highlights attractions (All for your own account)

• Hout Bay Harbour for craft shopping, walking on the beach and taking a boat trip to see the Cape Fur Seals on Duiker Island.
• Chapman’s Peak Drive, recognised as one of the world’s most scenic drives
• Cape Point - an invigorating walk takes you to the two lighthouses at the top and bottom of the headland, from where you will enjoy extraordinary views of the cliffs and the ocean below. Alternatively you could take a short funicular ride to the top.
• Cape of Good Hope – take a picture at the most south western tip of the African continent.
• Boulders Beach – to see the cute African Penguins in their natural habitat
• Simons Town – the South African naval base and also a quaint sleepy suburb popular with visitors for its little shops and restaurants.
• Fish Hoek Beach – safe family friendly beach with a great ice-creams!
• Kalk Bay – scenic fishing harbour town famous for its fish and chips, colourful fishing boats, variety of restaurants and boutique shops.
• Muizenberg – trendy beach very popular with surfers, also with a good selection of restaurants and places to buy ice cream.
• Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens – one of Cape Town’s Big Seven attractions. Enjoy walks through the beautiful indigenous and cultivated gardens. The tree top canopy walkway gives lovely elevated views over the gardens, with the eastern slopes of Table Mountain forming the backdrop.

Robben Island is synonymous with South African icon Nelson Mandela, who spent 18 of his 27 years of imprisonment in the previous maximum security prison on the island. This is a great half-day excursion for those wanting to learn more bout South Africa’s history.

The city centre of Cape Town is vibrant and has many interesting museums and historical buildings, a walk through the Company Gardens and a visit to the oldest building in the country, the Castle of Good Hope, are recommended. Two other fascinating areas in the city worth a visit are the Bo Kaap with its colourful houses and District Six where you will learn more about South Africa’s history of segregation.

Cape Town is also world famous for its wine and wine routes to explore and taste some of the finest wines on offer. The Cape Winelands is another highly recommended day trip, with Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek being only a short drive (under an hour) from the city and offering a vast array of estates to suit all tastes. Wine pairings are very popular – cheese, chocolate, nougat, biltong, cupcakes, pancakes, ice-cream, artisanal salt and pizza are a few of the options on offer! Even if you are not a wine fan the winelands is still a lovely outing and showcases some of the best restaurants in the country. Closer to town are also the exclusive Constantia wine farms which also offer excellent wines, stunning settings and top restaurants.

Those wanting some beach time will be spoilt for choice – the Atlantic Seaboard has the trendy and beautiful beaches of Camps Bay, Clifton and Llandudno, where the idea is to “see and be seen” rather than swim thanks to the very chilly water! On the False Bay side Muizenberg, St James, Fishhoek and Boulders beaches are more family friendly and have slightly warmer water for swimming.
The best places for shopping in Cape Town are the V&A Waterfront and Canal Walk which offer a wide range of local South African as well as international brands. Food markets have become very popular in the city are there are lots of options on different days of the week to sample the delicious foods on offer at the many food stalls, as well as be entertained by local musicians and artist.
If you wanted a taste of a safari it is possible to do a full day excursion to Aquila Private Game Reserve for a Big 5 safari experience.

Footnotes

The winter dry season in Southern Africa is between May and October and this is when game viewing is at its best, especially in the hotter, drier months at the end of the season. Thirsty animals congregate at waterholes, trees are often bare and vegetation is sparse - all of which makes it much easier to see wildlife.
