What to do in Cape Town

Cape Town is the second-most populous urban area in South Africa after Johannesburg and it is also the legislative capital of the country.  The city is famous for its harbour, for its natural setting in the Cape Floristic Region, and for such well-known landmarks as Table Mountain and Cape Point. It is one of the most multicultural cities in the world.

Curious? It’s not all: the city has a great coffee culture, fun markets to explore and a flourishing food movement, not to mention its historical and natural heritage. 

Where should you start then? A sightseeing tour on an accessible bus can give you a general idea, taking you round the Peninsula, through the city centre and into the Constantia Winelands. For nature lovers the choice is huge: from a multitude of botanical gardens and flower shows to seal and whale watching, and last, but definitively not least, Cape Town can be the starting point of an (accessible, of course!) safari.

There are many companies that offer safari tours with adapted vehicles, if you are lucky you might get a good look at the “Big Five”:  African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard, and rhinoceros.

For water sports fans, Cape Town is also a big destination for surf, and there are adapted surf schools too: check out our Tours section below for some ideas.

It’s going to be difficult to choose from all these opportunities: get planning and book your tickets!
