At the southernmost point of South Africa, Table Mountain stands like a sentinel guarding Cape Town and its beaches. The spectacular coastline, scenic mountains and historical architecture make the “Mother City” an excellent gateway into Africa, offering a compelling mix of stunning natural scenery and cultural activities alive with creativity, colourful sights, sounds and tastes.
The most Southwestern tip of Africa, Cape Point, is where it is fabled that two oceans meet. Learn how the treacherous rocks running along the Atlantic Seaboard came to be known as the ‘’Ship Graveyard” or why Bartholomew Diaz called the this place “Cabo de Tormentas” (Portuguese for: Cape of Storms) and what changed in the 200 years following that caused Jan Van Riebeeck to anchor in Table Bay and proclaim it, “Die Kaap van Goede Hoop’’ (Dutch for: The Cape of Good Hope).
