Deciding what to do for your next holiday can be both exciting and confusing, especially when considering South African destinations. We live in a truly magnificent country, with some truly stunning destinations, but there is one destination that stands out to both locals and visitors alike: Cape Town. A Cape Town tour is a varied and unique choice, with sights ranging from mountains, to seal islands, to historic landmarks.
There are several unique Cape Town tour packages that you can choose from, but you might not be too sure about which one suits you. The Cape Town tours that are available cater for almost every holiday preference, so if you prefer sipping on wine in a gorgeous wine farm, or would rather spend your day exploring the wilderness, there is something for you. Below we look at why you should choose a Cape Town tour for your next holiday.
Simply Stunning Setting
Cape Town is one of the few cities in the world that has a wide variety of settings. There are the historic Winelands that spread across various provinces, pristine beaches with untouched sands, and ancient mountains that watch over everything. With so much variety, any Cape Town tourism package is sure to surprise and delight you.
The views from the top of Table Mountain are second to none, and often show all of the diverse suburbs that Cape Town has. You can choose a Cape Town tour package that takes you up this gorgeous mountain either in a cable car or on a hike. From atop Table Mountain, you can soak up the glorious scenery of Cap Town. If you prefer hiking, there is the Lion’s Head mountain hike which is a little more strenuous but has views that are well worth the effort.
Almost Untouched Beaches
South Africa is known for having beautiful beaches, and the Cape Town beaches are no exception. One of the most popular beach destinations is False Bay, where you can choose a tour package that allows you to walk along the beach and interact with penguins. This is popular with locals and tourists alike and can provide many hours of fun for animal lovers.
It is important to remember your safety on these untouched beaches, as many do not have lifeguards posted at regular intervals and have very strong waves. If you are not a strong swimmer, rather opt to spend your time enjoying the rays of the South African sun and taking in the beautiful beach views. Be sure to pack plenty of sunscreen, bottled water, and hats to protect yourself from the UV rays.
Cape Town is full of historical landmarks, all of which are popular tourist attractions. You will be able to see Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was held while he was imprisoned. Other historical landmarks include the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, which is home to a diverse array of flora and fauna, and the various ancient wine farms dotted around the Winelands which you can visit.
If you are someone who enjoys immersing themselves in the culture of a country or city you are visiting, seeing these historical landmarks will make for a truly exciting experience. Be sure to pack your camera or charge your phone, so that you can take photographs and commemorate each moment. Many of these landmarks are in beautiful locations, so you can learn more about the history of South Africa while also enjoying the sights of Cape Town.
If you are a foodie that also loves to travel, then a Cape Town tour is the ideal choice for your holiday. The food in Cape Town is as diverse as the people that live there, ranging from traditional Cape Malay cuisine like curries and koesisters, to more cosmopolitan dishes such as hamburgers and sushi.
Many of the Cape Town tour packages will stop for lunch during the tour, allowing you to sample toe delicious delights that this bustling metropolis has on offer. The scenery for many of these lunch or dinner stop-offs is often breathtaking, providing the perfect backdrop for a light meal or a sumptuous supper. If you are unsure about a local dish, you can ask your tour guide for information about the ingredients and origins.
