Every visitor to The Mother City will have their own unique Cape Town experience.

One of the first items on any visitor’s list has to be a cable car trip to the top of Table Mountain. This natural wonder of the world offers extraordinary 360 degree views of the city and is the perfect way to get your bearings. From there, you might enjoy a visit to the nearby Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, home to some of the country’s finest stores and restaurants, a relaxing picnic in the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, or even a trip to majestic Cape Point where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet, with a stop at Cape Town’s famous penguin colony along the way.

If you want to explore Cape Town’s cultural heritage, you can hop on a ferry and visit Robben Island, the infamous prison that once held former president Nelson Mandela. Alternatively, a variety of township tours are available to take you into the informal settlements of Khayelitsha, Langa and Gugulethu, for a different perspective on life in this vibrant city.

Whether you want to spend your days relaxing on pristine, white beaches, soaking up the diverse cultures or shopping up a storm, Cape Town has something for every taste. You’ll even find safaris only an hour’s flight from the city. From the laidback beauty and gastronomic delights of the Cape winelands to countless mountain trails offering vistas that will leave you breathless, your biggest problem will be deciding what to experience next.

"We spent 10-nights in South Africa and would have loved to extend the trip and continue exploring. Our two most favorite parts of the trip were hiking Table Top Mountain with our fabulous, very knowledgeable and polite guide Nick one early morning (5am pick up!) and our time on Safari. Seeing all of the animals in their habitat and being a part of their world was a memory we will never forget."

"We visited South Africa, Zambia, and Botswana. The accommodations were next level. There are no adequate words to describe the experience in the bush with the Big 5 and beyond. The people are the most gracious, appreciative, and kind I’ve ever encountered. If you want a worry free, experience of a lifetime you must use Timelines Africa. I can’t wait to go back!!"
