We’ve spoken about the wonders of Cape Town and her many districts on the mtbeds.co.za blog before, because this unique and vibrant tourism destination simply has it all. As with London before her, we can confidently say that when you tire of Cape Town, you’ve tired of life! Here’s just a selection of the titillating experiences waiting for you in this melting pot of adventure, culture and luxury.
No trip to Cape Town would be complete without taking in the sights of Table Mountain. Indulge your sense of adventure with abseiling and other extreme activities, or take a quieter cable ride to the summit, but be sure to explore the natural fynbos biome and extraordinary wildlife that calls this area home. Embrace the long history of this area at the Cape Milner Hotel.
If you’re looking for a truly sensuous experience, then the Wine Route is for you. Combine tasting some of the world’s best wines with sumptuous dining from up-and-coming chefs, exquisite view in a gentle Mediterranean climate. There’s no better place to kick of the tour then Cape Town herself- try true luxury at the One and Only hotel, with one of the best wine lists in the world. Luxury spas abound, and tinkling waterfalls meet verdant forests wherever you cast your eyes. Not only does this area produce spectacular vintages, but you can taste fresh berries, olives, cheeses and so much more as you travel.
For the perfect spring experience, take the Cape Floral route. This truly unique area breaks into riotous colour every spring- follow the floral cascade as it tumbles down the coast, and meet great friends at the many unique arts, food and cultural festivals in the area. Or, if you’re looking for something truly unique, hop on the luxury Blue Train and travel in old-world style.
The many beaches of the area call to those who want sun, surf and fun. Hermanus remains the Whale Watching capital of the world, where calves frolic with their pods in the warm waters. Dolphins, sharks and even penguins frolic in this part of the world, so be sure to come and meet them up close and personal.
And, of course, there’s Cape Town herself, home of the never-ending party. Sip cocktails and unwind, join the vibrant nightlife and party ‘til you drop, or blow your budget on the many shopping experiences just waiting for you. Try the unique Urban Chic boutique hotel to be right in the middle of the party, or the Harbour Bridge Hotel as the perfect base for the V&A Waterfront.
Whatever your flavour of travel, Cape Town has an experience waiting for you, which is why Mtbeds.co.za recommends that no traveller to Africa fails to add this exceptional city to their itinerary.
