Cape Town, the “Mother City”, is the oldest city in South Africa and has a cultural heritage spanning more than 300 years. Perched between the ocean and the mountain, with a national park as its heart, there is nowhere like Cape Town. The unique topography of the region makes it easy to orientate oneself as long as you remember that with Table Mountain behind you and Robben Island before you, you are facing north, looking across Table Bay and up the west coast of Africa. It is in Cape Town that the Rainbow Nation really covers the spectrum. Between beautiful Cape Dutch homesteads, traditional dancers with painted faces performing in the streets, the smell of spicy Malay cooking and the taste of a well-made wine, this city will fill your senses. Cape Town is one of the leading travel destinations in the world and has won numerous awards. For more information on Cape Town go to the Discover Cape Town page in the Social Programme.
