Top 10 Things To Do In Cape Town

Travelling to Cape Town soon? Cape Town is the known locally as the 'Mother City' and is possibly one of the most beautiful cities in the country and a favourite of international tourists. Car Rental South Africa provides you with a short guide to our Top 10 Attractions in Cape Town, just so you know where to go, and don't miss out on what the city has to offer.

1 - Table Mountain

Called Table Mountain due to its irregular shape, the mountain is the icon of the city and forms a stunning back-drop to most locations. The main mountain is serviced by a cable car which allows you to travel to the top, without doing any hiking. Once at the top you can view the stunning panorama of Cape Town from above or look out to the ocean. If you are the energetic type Table Mountain, Lions Head and Devils Peak also offer great walks and hikes, which is a lovely way to spend a sunny day of your holiday.

2 - Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

Cape Town's most popular tourist destination, the V&A Waterfront is situated on the site of the old Cape Town harbour, though you wouldn't recognise it today. Home to exclusive shops, upmarket restaurants and other attractions the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront offers something for everyone in the family and is a great place to do some shopping while in Cape Town.

3 - Camps Bay Beach

Feel like spending the day in the sun catching a tan? Camps Bay Beach is a trendy beach with clean white sand and safe swimming waters and a must visit if you plan of soaking up some sun and sand whilst visiting Cape Town. Camps Bay offers not only the beach but a vibrant atmosphere, with restaurants, bars and shops running adjacent to the beachfront.

4 - Winelands & Wine Tours

Cape Town and its surrounding areas are famous for their wines and the area boasts a number of old wine farms that are worth visiting. If you are planning a day out driving and enjoy the uniqueness of the Western Cape scenery then a wine route is the way to go. Though not in Cape Town itself, just outside in the areas of Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschoek and Constantia you will find many interesting and picturesque wine farms worth popping into.

5 - Robben Island

The former prison of Nobel Prize winner Nelson Mandela, once President of South Africa, a tour of Robben Island is a must. Don't go home from your Cape Town holiday without being able to tell your friends you visited the cell of Nelson Mandela!

6 - Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

Founded in 1913, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens lie at the foot of Table Mountain and cover a massive area which is well worth exploring on a sunny day. The gardens try to only cultivate indigenous species of plants to help preserve the uniqueness of the Western Cape vegetation. Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens also play host to numerous concerts in summer which are a great way to spend an evening.

7 - Boulders Beach

Part of the Table Mountain National Park Boulders Beach is great stop if you have kids, where they can have fun watching the colony of African Penguins that call Boulders Beach their home. It's a lovely, sheltered beach so there are also safe swimming areas for cooling off on a hot Cape Town summer's day.

8 - Whale Watching

If you have never seen a whale, your trip to Cape Town is the right time to take a whale watching tour. During breeding season from August to November you can catch Humpback and Southern Right Whales whilst the rest of the year it is still possible to view Killer Whales, Bryde's Whales as well as dolphins.

9 - Castle of Good Hope

Built by the Dutch East India Company, the Castle of Good Hope is the oldest building in all of South Africa and a monument to Cape Town's heritage as a stopping point on the spice route. Take in the history of old Cape Town and learn something about its roots and what created the vibrant city.

10 - Green Market Square

Green Market Square is the place to visit if you are going to central Cape Town. It's a vibey, atmospheric market in the centre of town surrounded by funky restaurants and African art shops. Take an hour or two to browse the varied offerings at the stall before stopping in for a cold drink on a lazy afternoon in Cape Town.
