Cape Town

If you're looking for a holiday that you’ll remember for a lifetime then look no further than South Africa's 'Mother City' of Cape Town. Nestled at the foot of the magnificent Table Mountain, this beautiful metropolis is a melting pot of cultures, coastlines and scenery.

Here you can spend a morning relaxing on a golden sand beach followed by lunch at a vineyard tasting the local tipples and an evening jumping between restaurants, jazz cafees, theatres and nightclubs in the heart of the city. And the next day you'll still be spoilt for choice with new and exciting things to do.
