Did you know?
Cape Town embraces the Cape Floral Kingdom, a renowned World Heritage Site. Even though it is the smallest of the world's floral kingdoms, it has the greatest biodiversity.
Cape Town, laid-back and edgy, mellow and gutsy, formal and funky, waits to welcome you in 2010 to share in her bounty of blessings. The home of a multicultural population of 4.6 million, Cape Town is our cosmopolitan centre, our first city of fashion, our hub of adventure, our culinary leader, the solid base for a rich and multi-stranded heritage, and the location of hallowed grounds of sport.
Visitors and residents of Cape Town really love to live on their city streets - urban streets that bustle under the gaze of its most famous icon, Table Mountain. When the local population are not paying attention to business, there is plenty of time to play, as you'll soon find out.
The Mother City is one of the most popular destinations on the planet... and for good reason. Enjoy Cape Town's funky lifestyles for a day or two and then head off to the Winelands, the Garden Route, the beautiful West Coast or the great Karoo. Go shark diving, learn to ride an ostrich and feast on some of the best food and wine this country has to offer.
This gorgeous seaside host city has it all: awe-inspiring attractions, culture, history, white-knuckle adventures, winelands, beaches; and the country's finest food and shopping destinations. Whether you're ogling pods of whales, beach bods or the views from atop Table Mountain, a holiday in this laid-back harbour town is guaranteed to be one long fiesta.
When you're done supporting your team, get to know this southern tip of Africa. Take an organised tour, or hire a car and do it on your own steam. Take time to interact with the locals - they'll increase your understanding and enjoyment of our complex but compelling country.
After just a few hours you'll fully understand why we are crazy about South Africa's First Lady - the Mother City.
