Cape Town - Holiday Destination in South Africa - Great White Shark Tours

Cape Town

In the Western Cape of South Africa lies one of the most stunning regions in the world, the famous City of Cape Town, otherwise known as the Mother City of Africa. Comprised of a combination of Indonesian, Dutch, British, French and German settlers, as well as local Bushmen, Hottentot tribes and Bantu tribes from the north, Cape Town is alive with culture and rich in history, both of which are expressed through its architecture, cuisine, music and dance.

The city and its surrounding regions are perfectly suited as an ideal holiday destination, due to warm summers and a mild winter climate, along with warm-hearted, friendly locals.

Table Mountain – Our Natural Wonder of the World
Located between the two famous landmarks Devil’s Peak and Signal Hill, Table Mountain towers majestically above the city. The Cape Peninsula, known for its abundant offering of lavish rivers, diverse fauna and flora, beautiful dams and breath-taking countryside, is synonymous of endless white sandy beaches and fynbos-lined dunes which shape its unique tranquil coastline. Its surroundings stretch out into the winelands, displaying dream-like hues of red, green and gold all year round.
