South Africa Things to Do: 727 reviews and 1,118 photos


This is the most beautiful city in South Africa. Where multicultural life goes on in harmony, a table-shaped mountain dominates a fantastic setting. It's the place where two oceans converge, the Indian and the Atlantic.

Cape Town was established in 1652 by Dutch seafarers as a replenishment station for ships of the Dutch East Indies Company. Today it is the second largest city in South Africa and is the legislative capital of the country.

With a history of more than 340 years and for many years the gateway to Southern Africa it is a blend of many different cultures - Dutch, Asian, Malay, English, Xhosa, Khoisan - and is a mixture of old and new, east and west.

Directions: South-Western Point of South Africa, near the Cape of Good Hope
