Cape Town

Cape Town is a port city located on a peninsula beneath the towering Table Mountain on South Africa’s southwest coast. Slowly spinning cable cars ascend to the mountain’s flat summit, where magnificent views of the city, the bustling harbour, and boats bound for Robben Island, the renowned prison where Nelson Mandela was briefly imprisoned and is now a living museum, are available.

In 2014, Cape Town was named the best place in the world to visit by both The New York Times and The Daily Telegraph.

Located on the shore of Table Bay, Cape Town, as the oldest urban area in the Western Cape, it was developed by the Dutch East India Company (VOC) as a supply station for Dutch ships sailing to East Africa, India, and the Far East. Jan van Riebeeck’s arrival on 6 April 1652 established the VOC Cape Colony, the first permanent European settlement in South Africa. Cape Town outgrew its original purpose as the first European outpost at the Castle of Good Hope, becoming the economic and cultural hub of the Cape Colony. Until the Witwatersrand Gold Rush and the development of Johannesburg, Cape Town was the largest city in South Africa.
