Things to do and see in Cape Town 

Table Mountain 

Standing over Cape Town, Table Mountain is an iconic symbol of natural beauty and wonder. Its distinctive flat-topped silhouette, usually covered by the mystical 'table cloth' of clouds, brings in people from around the world. 
You can reach the summit by cable car for a 360-degree view or for the more adventurous, you can hike along trails to see the unparalleled panoramas of the city, coastline and surrounding landscapes.  
Table Mountain is home to very unique flora and fauna, including the endemic fynbos vegetation and the charismatic rock hyrax, perfect for nature enthusiasts. 

Cape Peninsula 

Cape Peninsula is a breath-taking stretch of land where rugged cliffs meet the Atlantic Ocean. Home to iconic landmarks such as Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, this penisula is full of natural wonders. 
Explore the pristine beaches, lush coastal vegetation and scenic drives along the winding coastline roads. There are plenty of opportunities for hiking, wildlife spotting and historical exploration in Cape Peninsula. 
Visit the quaint fishing villages of Kalk Bay and Simon's Town to get a glimpse into the region's maritime history, while the vibrant communities of Hout Bay and Muizenberg buzz with creativity and charm. 

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens 

Located on the eastern slope of Table Mountain, the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens are home to a large collection of indigenous plants, from fynbos heather to bright strelitzias and proteas (South Africa’s national flower).  
There’s also a conservatory housing flora that grows in more extreme conditions, from mountain peaks to arid deserts. In addition, the gardens regularly host stone sculpture exhibitions and outdoor concerts. There are shady, secluded spots to sit in, or explore the pathways that meander through the woods and bushes in the upper areas of the gardens, which run unfenced into the slopes of the mountain. 

Whale Watching and Shark Cage Diving 

The Cape Town coastline is visited by numerous whale and dolphin species, including southern right whales and humpback whales, which migrate each year from the icy waters of Antarctica to have their young.  
Gansbaai, a two-hour drive from Cape Town, is the main launch pad for whale watching cruises, as well as shark cage dives, as high numbers of great white sharks patrol the waters between Dyer Island and Geyser Rock.  
This is an exhilarating way to acquaint yourself with these ominous but graceful creatures in their natural environment, whether you remain on the boat and watch them feeding on the surface or opt to be lowered into the water inside a galvanised steel cage for a closer view.
