Make Dreams a Reality with Guided Tours to Cape Town

 
Whether arriving at Cape Town via cruise ship or by overseas flight, the city’s breath-taking scenery, warm hospitality, inspirational history and cultural diversity equal the vacation of a lifetime. No wonder Cape Town frequently pops up on international lists as a top ten destination city.

 

Speaking of top ten, here are just 10 sights to choose from when seeking out guided tours in and around Cape Town:

 

1. Table Mountain. Standing over 1,000 metres above sea level, Table Mountain gets its name from its flat summit. Sometimes white clouds seem to rest on its highest point, looking much like a white tablecloth is set. A cable car ride affords magnificent 360 degree views of Cape Town.


2. Robben Island. Robben Island is South Africa’s version of Alcatraz Island, a place of imprisonment. The late Nelson Mandela was incarcerated here for almost 20 years. Upon the end of apartheid, the island became an historical monument as well as a nature reserve.

 

3. Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. With 528 hectares of grounds, Kirstenbosch sits at the foot of the eastern slopes of Table Mountain and contains over 7,000 types of plants, including the most complete inventory of indigenous African plants.

 

4. Two Oceans Aquarium. The Cape Peninsula sits right where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet, so there’s no more apt name for this stunning aquarium. From clown fish and seahorses, Great White Sharks and tortoises, Two Oceans Aquarium showcases the splendour found in these two marine habitats.

 

5. Simon’s Bay. What better place to view adorable African Penguins, also called Jackass Penguins for their distinctive donkey-like bray. The relatively shielded bay cove has become a nesting ground for them so beware of their razor-sharp beaks.

 

6. Cape Point Nature Reserve. Magnificent beaches, an active lighthouse and dramatic coastline are just part of the allure here. A wild array of flora and fauna are to be found here, including reptiles, baboons and zebras. Exult at Twelve Apostles peaks, part of the Table Mountain range.

 

7. Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Fishing boats still bring in the catch of the day at Cape Town’s busy harbour. The V&A is the beating heart of several hundreds of years development that transformed Cape Town from a port to a cosmopolitan city.

 

8. Cape Town Double Decker Buses. Featuring informative audio commentary, these handy hop-on hop-off open-topped buses take you to all major points of interests, including museums, galleries and architecture. Perfect for those new sightseers to Cape Town as well as return visitors to the city.

 

9. Cape Townships. If Robben Island is on your wish list, consider also a visit to the townships of Langa and Khayalitsha for a fuller sense of Cape Town life, its communities and its people.

 

10. The Craft Market. Support made-in-South Africa crafts, jewelry and collectibles. This market, the largest indoor art market in South Africa, is located by the Two Oceans Aquarium and offers plenty of opportunity to bring home a memento of South Africa.
