Cape Town • South Africa
Located on the south western tip of South Africa and facing the Atlantic, with a developed and world famous waterfront, its dramatic views of Table Mountain, Cape Town is ideally located to provide the traveler with lots to see and do.
Scenic beauty, cultural diversity, gourmet delights and breathtaking scenes all conspire to make Cape Town and its surroundings a destination to be enjoyed. Cape Town is the oldest port and most visited city in South Africa.
The city centre boasts a Castle, historic Houses of Parliament, gardens and more, but be warned that crime is high and best to keep valuables out of site. With an unemployment rate of 39% (2007) the struggle to survive is clear in the people who live here, a clear divide between the wealthy and the poor, the ride from the airport will take you past the slums, don’t walk the city centre at night!
