Welcome to Cape Town!

Welcome to Cape Town!

Welcome To Cape Town


By Estelle Vosloo

Few global cities are quite as unique as Cape Town. The city offers a home to a variety of nationalities from all four corners of the earth. It is the only city in the world where 11 official languages are spoken by even more nationalities sharing one city.

Cape Town is a blank canvas for the artist, a hub of electric style and technology for a modern generation which is why it is then a befitting home for the World Design Capital.

The Mother City offers a new challenge for the adventurer around every corner and stretches of white sandy blue flag beaches holds a sunny spot for the hedonistically inclined. The city, steeped in history, is a visual feast for those who are bewitched by architecture and it sits at the tip of African and international culinary arts.

The city offers an in-exhaustible list of tourist attractions complimented by a hypnotic array of eateries, restaurants and markets. Cape Town is set at the foot of one of the world’s most iconic mountains, Cape Town’s most famous sight; Table Mountain. The mountain watches over the city to the Overberg Mountain range in the East, the patch quilt of vineyards and fruit orchards to the North, and sheets of the world famous West Coast wildflower kingdom.

Known as ‘The Mother City’, Cape Town is a melting pot of traditions and cultures. The city is known as being particularly gay friendly and the annual Gay Parade is a high light on the social calendar.

Sportsmen and women are certainly not forgotten. The city offers at least 5 major athletic events every year which attracts a lot of international interest as people from all over the world travel to the city to participate in The Argus Cycle Tour, The Two Oceans Marathon, the city’s Gun Run, the respected Epic mountain bike race and the much loved family event the Cape Town Big Walk.

Weekly sporting events include smaller yet notable bike and mountain bike races, while Cape Tonians love their team sports too. Befittingly Cape Town is also home to the country’s original home of Rugby – Newlands.

It was in Cape Town where the world witnessed the first heart transplant, under the leadership of Dr Christiaan Barnard. The city has deep roots in medical fields which have been supported by top notch tertiary institutions. Cape Town, and within easy reach of the city, are three of the country’s top universities. Two of which, the University of Cape Town and the University of Stellenbosch rank amongst the top 10% of international tertiary educational centres.

With so much on offer it is understandable that Cape Town has seen a continued growth in tourism figures and the city’s economy heavily depends on it too. Not only do our five star hotels, some of the best in the world, and connoisseur restaurants benefit from tourism but so does the city’s street vendors selling handmade crafts, the informal pop-up restaurants and various private operators.
While finding good accommodation, the right services and reputable operators can be an intimidating project, don’t fret.
