Where to stay in Cape Town
If you want to wake up every morning to the sound of rolling waves your best bet is to rent a holiday apartment with views to the Atlantic Ocean or perhaps towards Table Mountain if you ever tire of the fabulous sea views. Do you feel like indulging in some rural tourism instead? In that case head towards the hills where you will find many stunning holiday villas and cottages where you can enjoy your own private manicured garden after a long day out and about in town for the price of a hotel room. A holiday rental is perfect if you are seeking to experience an authentic trip where you can chat to the amiable locals and discover their top tips to explore the best that Cape Town has to offer whilst staying away from the bustling crowds. Only they can tell you where to find the finest and most authentic restaurants to sample some mouth-watering seafood or perhaps share some of the local recipes that you can recreate in your very own kitchen with fresh produce bought at the market.
Cape Town with the family
Children will love to explore the wonderfully houses of Bo Kaap, a charming and colourful Muslim neighbourhood, followed by a trip to the waterfront where they can spot seals sunbathing on the docks. The little ones can enjoy a visit to the aquarium whilst daring teenagers might prefer to climb Table Mountain. If you wish to take a day trip out of town you can explore one of the many wineries along the Cape or perhaps head to Boulders to observe penguin colonies. There is so much to see and do in Cape Town that you’ll never want to leave. Are you ready to experience this amazing city in person?
