Cape Town Holidays

The first thing you'll need to do on a Cape Town holiday is catch your breath: with Table Mountain, the world's most famous natural landmark as a background, and flanked by sky-blue oceans and picture-postcard mountain ranges, you'll never be short of a gasp-inducing view - or things to do.

Cape Town is South Africa's 2nd biggest but most loved city. Known affectionately as The Mother City, this kaleidoscope of culture, cuisine, adventure and discovery is one of those cities you simply fall in love with.

Cape Town holidays will take you from Table Mountain's 360° views from to the bustling holiday atmosphere of the V&A Waterfront - and everything in between. There are hiking trails to explore, world-famous beaches to relax on, markets to browse, cultural events to dance to - oh, and did we mention the best cuisine and finest wine in Africa?

You'll love our huge range of accommodation in Cape Town - there's everything from 6-star penthouse suites to seriously fashionable boutique hotels and family-friendly lodges to complement your Cape Town holiday. But Cape Town holidays needn't be restricted to the city limits: head off on one of our Cape Town tours and explore the Cape Winelands, Whale Coast or Garden Route. There's big game watching close by, and Cape Town easily combines with a wealth of other destinations including the Kruger National Park and the Indian Ocean islands.

Cape Town holidays - you'll probably want to stay.

Experts Reviews

Cape Town is without question one of the world’s most beautiful cities. The best way to begin your adventure is with a cable car ride up Table Mountain, with its amazing view of the city. Don’t forget to visit the pristine beaches and seafront restaurants of Camps Bay, and make time for the penguin colony at Boulders Beach. Also very popular is the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront which is home to a myriad of shops, bars and restaurants overlooking the harbour. Attractive by day, the Waterfront comes alive at night.
