·· Cape Town Holiday:
CAPE Town - regarded as one of the world's premier vacation destinations and one of the most beautiful cities - is the perfect way to end a safari to South Africa, Namibia or Botswana.
Sophisticated and alluring, central Cape Town and the bustling Waterfront nestle beneath the imposing Table Mountain, a welcoming sight to ancient mariners and beneath whose shadow Nelson Mandela greeted rapturous crowds after his release from Robben Island in 1990.
Today, Robben Island (pictured above) is a national monument and is a mere 25 minute boat ride from the piers of Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
Stretching behind Table Mountain is a glorious mountain chain, ending at Cape Point - long regarded as the meeting place of the Atlantic and Indian oceans. The coastline boasts some magnificent beaches - Clifton and Camps Bay for trendies, Long beach for horse riders and surfers, Boulders for visits to the African penguins and Llandudno or Scarborough for sunsets and sundowners.
Cape Town is a relaxed, easy going city with a sophisticated population and plethora of cultures and languages. The surrounding areas are home to the world famous Cape Winelands, where the valleys and mountainsides are covered in vineyards which produce some of the finest wines in the world. In Cape Town and surrounds, the traveler has a wide choice of fine accommodation.
Cape Town was one of the host cities and venue for a quarter final and semi final match for the 2010 FIFA Football World Cup in June and July, 2010. The magnificent new stadium is situated close to the Waterfront, with a spectacular backdrop of Table Mountain. The city quickly gained a fame among football fans as the friendliest and most beautiful World Cup destination.
