Victoria and Alfred Waterfront in front of Table Mountain, Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town is a multicultural, cosmopolitan city, voted the best place in the world to visit by both the New York Times and the Daily Telegraph. It is the legislative capital of South Africa and, historiically, one of South Africa's most important cities. This is where the first European colonists set foot in South Africa, when it was developed by the Dutch East India Company as a supply station for Dutch ships sailing for East Africa, India and the Far East.
Nelson Mandela, probably the world's most famous political prisoner, was held on the tiny Robben Island, a short boat trip from the city. In one of the most famous moments marking the end of apartheid, he made his first public speech from the balcony of Cape Town City Hall a few hours following his release on Feburary 11th, 1990.
Cape Town is not only a popular international tourist destination in South Africa, but in the continent as a whole. This is due to its mild climate, natural setting, and well-developed infrastructure.
Table Mountain, with its vertical cliffs and flat topped summit dominates the city. It was created during the Ice Age roughly 300,000 years ago and over the years moved from sea level to a kilometer tall overlooking the bay. This iconic landmark can be experienced by traveling on the Aerial Cableway which is nearly a century old, but extensively upgraded in 1997.
When visiting this wonderful and historic city, we plan to stay at an iconic hotel that reflects the historic significance of the city, the Mount Nelson. Set in the vibrant heart of Cape Town, this luxury hotel offers easy access to all that’s happening in this dynamic city.
