Four seasons in one day and three cities in one, Cape Town is captivating, entertaining and a definite “must-see before you die”. Whether you’re after the iconic sights, city delights, hanging with the in-crowd or just a laid-back beach vibe on the tip of Africa, there is something for everyone in Cape Town.
The City Bowl
Catch the cableway and a view of this beautiful city from the top of Table Mountain. Watch the hustle and bustle of Cape Town harbour from the Waterfront; shop/drop/wine&dine in the trendy Cape Quarter before hitting the Long Street nightspots.

Commodore – At the heart of the Waterfront
Stroll along the Sea Point promenade, and then join the bronzed bodies on the Clifton beaches before sundowners with the beautiful people at one of the seafront cafes on the palm-lined Camps Bay strip. Further down the coast are the delights of Llandudno beach and its millionaire’s hideaways, or bare all at nearby Sandy Bay nudist beach.
