City breaks & Short breaks in Cape Town
Cape Town is the gateway to the Western Cape region of South Africa and with a temperate climate and oodles of things to do, it make for the perfect city break destination. The city is sandwiched between Table Bay and the well-known landmarks of Table Mountain and Cape Point. It was an original settlement by Dutch colonialists in the 15th century but is now the country’s second most populous city. The Castle of Good Hope is the oldest building in South Africa and was erected by the Dutch East India Company between 1666 and 1679. Nature lovers will have a field day relaxing on one of the city’s many sandy white beaches. The Cape Point nature reserve is also a good place to spot the odd shark if you are too scared to go in the water! In town the Green Market Square is the city’s oldest market set over cobbled streets and packed full of African curiosities.
