5 Attractions to visit in Cape Town, South Africa
The most beautiful and most visited city in South Africa and often said to be the most romantic as well, Cape Town is unlike any other city you'll see on your visit to South Africa. Journey in and around Cape Town and don't forget to visit these little gems of the city.

Table Mountain - The view from far presents a majestic sight to behold, with the shape of the mountains embedded into the skyline of Cape Town. However, it's when you actually step a foot on Table Mountain that you realize what true beauty is. Take a scenic cable car ride up the mountain top or if you're feeling a little adventurous, this mountain is a one stop treat with its famous treks. Enjoy the panoramic views with your loved ones and don't leave Table Mountain without waiting for the "table cloth", a large white cloud that passes over as the south east wind blows.

Campus Bay Beach – Be it day or night time, this beautiful white soft-sanded beach is the perfect place to go to for a relaxing day with the family or loved ones. Take a stroll, swim, surf or just lay back and soak in some rays. Watch the waves of the Atlantic Ocean crash onto the shoreline and maybe if you're lucky, whales and dolphins in the distance to complete your picture perfect beach trip.

Castle Of Good Hope – Built during 1666 – 1679, The Castle of Good Hope is South Africa's oldest building, situated in the heart of Cape Town. Immerse in rich history by taking a tour of the pentagon shaped fort, visiting rooms such as the Torture and dungeon rooms and the beautifully decorated Lady Anne Barnard Room. If you arrive close to the afternoon, stick around for the traditional ceremonies including The Key ceremony and the firing of the Signal Cannons right after.

Drakenstein Lion Park – If you don't want to go too far out into South Africa, this park provides you the excellent opportunity to catch the lions up close at the Drakenstein Lion Park. Learn more about these magnificent creatures and this park's efforts to save them and let South Africa's King of the Jungle leave an impression that you'll remember for years on.

Victoria and Alfred Waterfront – One of the most popular tourist destinations in Cape Town with a vibrant lovely feel to it. Feel the old rust of the town with its Victorian houses combined with the new upbeat lifestyle of the 21st century. Choose from over 200 shops catering to almost anything and everything or dine under the stars in their open air eateries along the waterfront.
