Cape Town

Cape Town is renowned for being one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Situated at the base of Table Mountain, it is the capital city of the Western Cape. Whether you are looking for history, natural beauty or a cosmopolitan lifestyle, the 'Mother City' has it all. There is such a diversity of attractions and activities you will not be disappointed with your city experience. 


Offering fantastic views of the city, Table Mountain dominates the skyline. For natural surroundings there are gardens, beaches and vineyards all close by. Cape Town is steeped in history and many of the museums and monuments have much to tell. For a cosmopolitan and lively experience, visit the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront with a wide variety of shops, restaurants and craft markets.


Johannesburg, or Jo’burg as it is more commonly known, is South Africa’s largest city, situated on an interior plateau known as the Highveld. Johannesburg is one of South Africa’s key gateway cities and offers an array of exciting sightseeing options.


There's something for everyone - museums that examine the country's apartheid past, the city's exciting new Constitutional Court, a look at the city's gold mining beginnings, traditional African medicine and plenty of animals and outdoor fun.
