South Africa Holidays - Cable Car to Table Mountain

Cape Town has come to be known as South Africa's 'Mother City', and is Southern Africa's most beautiful and most visited city.  You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to filling a short stay here.  You might wish to take the iconic cable car (weather-permitting) to the summit of Table Mountain for a panoramic view of the city, or spend time wandering through the shops, bars, restaurants and museums of the world-famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.  Other attractions worth visiting are Bo-Kaap, also known as the Malay Quarter, one of the city's oldest residential districts characterised by brightly coloured 19th century Dutch and Georgian terraces, Company's Gardens, established in 1652 to supply fresh greens to the Dutch East India Company but now dedicated to botanical horticulture, or the 17th century Castle of Good Hope.  You could also take a full day's tour of the Cape Peninsula, including the winding roads of Chapman's Peak, one of the world's most spectacular ocean drives, or drive into the lovely Cape Winelands area. 

World Discovery can arrange private transportation and guiding for any sightseeing you might wish to take, or you might wish to 'do it yourself'.  There are organised tours you can book on at your hotel, or (a particular favourite) you can take one of the regular 'hop on, hop off' open-top Red Bus tours - www.citysightseeing.co.za - which cover most of the city's attractions, with a very good head-phone commentary in a choice of languages.
