Cape Town is the second largest city in South Africa but it is number 1 when it comes to scenic beauty.

The recorded history of Cape Town goes back to 1652 when a supply station was established there by the Dutch East India Company. Signs of human habitation have been found dating back to nearly 15,000 years ago.

The dominating feature of Cape Town is the iconic Table Mountain. One of Cape Towns other major attractions is the waterfront. The waterfront is the departure point to the world famous Robben Island. For those interested in the history of the area the Castle of Good Hope is worth a visit.

From Cape Town one can easily reach a number of scenic attractions and famous name wine farms. Cape Town has become one of South Africas top tourist destinations.
