Set at the foot of the Iconic Table Mountain in South Africa, the city of Cape Town is a place of incredible natural beauty, diversity and vitality. As a visitor to the area you will encounter mountain wilderness, alluring beaches, charming wine estates and quaint harbours. The city itself is both sophisticated and historical and coupled with the wonderful climate, it is not surprising that Cape Town has been recognised as 'The Greatest City on Earth' (Telegraph Travel Awards 2018).
South Africa is an extremely budget friendly destination for travellers. Throughout your trip you will be pleasantly surprised by how far your money can go to enable you to enjoy the range of wonderfully unique restaurants, bars and coffee houses to which Cape Town is home. Other than indulging in the delectable food culture, visitors can also explore the un-paralleled number of leisure activities for which the Cape is famous: vibrant markets, compelling museums, idyllic outdoor concerts, exciting international sporting contests and thrilling adventure activities.
With all that it has to offer, the life of the city is infectious and stimulating, and yet at the same time, Cape Town is familiar. The city makes you feel at home, and that is because whether you have just stepped off the plane, or you have been living there your whole life, it is impossible not to be impacted by the spirit and friendliness of the people. Everyone in the Mother City has a story to tell, and will be delighted to tell it to you with a huge smile on their face, regardless of the challenges it may entail. The people of Cape Town will change your assumptions and encourage you to embrace a wider horizon!
The diversity of the Western Cape’s natural landscape, along with its all year round Mediterranean climate, means that the area boasts an endless list of amazing things to do. This, coupled with hundreds of reputable tour companies and affordable hostels, has resulted in the Garden Route becoming one of the most popular backpacking journeys in the world.
