Top places to see in Cape Town
  • Table Mountain

    Table Mountain is an iconic part of Cape Town. Many visitors hike or take a trip in the aerial cableway to the top of the mountain to see breathtaking views of Robben Island, Cape Town, Table Bay, Devil's Peak, and more.

  • Robben Island

    Located just a few miles off the coast of Cape Town, Robben Island is the former prison camp of many South African democratic supporters. These supporters were against apartheid and fought to combat racial discrimination.

  • Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

    Named after the British Queen Victoria and Prince Alfred, the Waterfront has something for everyone. With hundreds of shops, restaurants, cafes, the Two Oceans Aquarium, and more, you will surely find something to enjoy. The Nelson Mandela Gateway carries visitors to Robben Island.
