South Africa Table Mountain

Explore the Cape Town tourism scene with its
breath-taking attraction and sightseeing options

The essence of the Cape Town tourism scene is that one can't think of Cape Town and its surroundings and not visualize the awesome iconic mass of Table Mountain looming over one of the most beautiful cities in the world.


It forms a spectacular backdrop to the city's endless variety of attractions, which include its unique Cape Floral Kingdom, pearly white beaches, vibrant multi-racial culture and rich history.<.p>

Enjoy the Cape's charming fishing villages and numerous adventure activities next to some of the world's largest shopping malls and the most fantastic scenery you have ever seen, and many more.

Cape Town offers an incredible variety of entertainment with great nightclubs, bars, pubs, fantastic restaurants and wonderful theatres.

Long street for instance is one of the places to go for some phenomenal nightlife, starting with cocktails, enjoying a delicious dinner, exploring a variety of bars and pubs and then dancing the rest of the night away, all in one street.

It will take you at least a week to explore and cover just the top attractions in and around Cape Town, such as for example the following:
