Action, arts, culture, cuisine and creatures – it all awaits in Cape Town, winner of Telegraph Travel Awards’ Best City.


Cape Town Activities In and Around The Mother City

Oceans, hills, valleys, mountaintops and more. The Mother City, an affectionate nickname for Cape Town, offers tourists from far and wide the perfect marriage between natural beauty and urban luxury. Breathe in that fresh Atlantic sea breeze while you hike up Table Mountain, one of the world’s seven wonders of nature. Bask in the African sun while trying to spot lions on a full day safari – a firm favourite of Pure Africa Experiences clients. Shark cage dive with our famous Great White Sharks. Visit Robben Island and take a tour of the former political prison where Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 prison years, or spend a Saturday in the life of a Capetonian visiting the vibrant village of Woodstock.  After a full day of Cape Town activities you can return to your accommodation to enjoy what South Africans are best-known for worldwide – their hospitality.
