Cape Town

Experience 2018’s “World’s leading festival and events destination” and 2019’s “best destination in Africa” on a trip to South Africa’s Mother City.

Once the biggest city and economic hub of South Africa, Cape Town is one of the most multicultural cities in the world.  Cape Town’s position on the southern tip of Africa made it an important shipping hub for sailors as far back as the 15th century.

Although the “gold rush” relocated most of the country’s economic activities to Johannesburg in the late 1800’s, Cape Town has remained one of the premier destinations for locals and visitors alike.

Instantly recognized by the iconic Table Mountain, the city delivers breathtaking scenery from the peak of Signal Hill, the winding drive of Chapman’s Peak and the rocky outcrops of Cape Point.  Alive with history, visitors can experience sites such as Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was jailed), immerse themselves in the colour BoKaap district, explore the famous Cape Castle or enjoy the café culture of Long Street.

Foodies will find heaven along the world-famous Wine Route, and shopaholics will delight at the famous V&A Waterfront, which offers an array of stores and restaurants inside the harbour district.  A variety of budget and luxury hotels provide comfortable overnight stays where visitors can recharge between busy days of sightseeing.

Make the most of your time in our beautiful Mother City with flexible, personalised day tours from Stephenson Adventures.
