Without doubt, Cape Town is South Africa's most beautiful, romantic and popular city and was rated top destination in the world for 2014 by British newspaper The Guardian and the US’s New York Times.

Dominated by the world famous landmark of Table Mountain (and one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature), Cape Town is blessed with a spectacular coastline, a Mediterranean-type climate and a variety of attractions to appeal to every visitor.
