WHAT WE LOVE

Affectionate nicknamed the Mother City, Cape Town is surrounded by the Atlantic and Indian Oceans and boasts of spectacular mountains and landscapes. The iconic Table Mountain offers the best panoramic views of the city, which is considered the oldest European settlement in Africa. A visit to Robben Island provides a glimpse into the volatile history of Cape Town, having been the location of maximum security prisons for political prisoners for several centuries. This was the same island where prominent anti-apartheid revolutionary Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for 18 years.
