About Cape Town 

Originally intended as a supply station for Dutch ships en route to Eastern Africa, India and the Far East, by 1652, Cape Town had become the first permanent European settlement in South Africa. As time passed other settlements were created, yet the Cape Colony looked to Cape Town as its economic and cultural hub.

Cape Town Heritage 

Today Cape Town is the provincial capital and primate city of Western Cape to be enjoyed on Cape Town tours. The city houses the National Parliament making it the legislative capital of the country. A truly multicultural city, Cape Town has come a long way since apartheid dominated the entirety of South Africa. Once rife with segregation and anti-black reforms and legislation, Cape Town now understands, appreciates and more importantly enjoys its diverse cultural heritage. The reopening of Robben Prison (where Nelson Mandela was held for 18 years) as a museum is an excellent symbol of a new South Africa, one where democracy has won over apartheid.

Cape Town Landscape 

A cosmopolitan and modern city, Cape Town has the benefit of being surrounded by incredible natural highlights like Table Mountain and a multitude of beautiful beaches making it ideal for a South African vacation. Investments from the 2010 World Cup have revitalized the city showing the world that Cape Town is one of the best tourist destinations in Africa.
