3 nts The Table Bay, Cape Town
- Breakfast

The Mother City is probably the most popular starting point for any visit to South Africa and so it should be! Regularly voted as one of the world's most beautiful cities Cape Town has it all – a fascinating mix of up-to-the-minute vibrancy, memorable history and culture along with spectacular natural beauty.

Brimming with diversity and history, the City Bowl is the heart of city and nestles between Table Mountain, Devil's Peak and Lion's Head. It's here that you'll find the Central Business District with its numerous shops and bars along with some residential suburbs, including Bo-Kaap, the picturesque area at Signal Hill known for its colourful houses and cobbled streets. To the west lies the Atlantic Seaboard which stretches from the V&A Waterfront to Llandudno with some of the hottest beaches in between, including trendy Camps Bay. Further south on the Cape Peninsula you'll find the leafy, affluent suburbs of Constantia and Newlands.

If you haven't hired a car, the city centre itself is compact enough to explore on foot or alternatively open-top bus tours are available, allowing you to hop on and off at various stops, allowing you to choose which attractions you want to explore.

The city's most famous attraction, Table Mountain, is also one of the world's most recognisable landmarks and no visit to Cape Town would be complete without a trip up the 360º rotating cable car to the top. Be warned that cloud cover can affect visibility and may even cause the cable car to be closed. During peak times, queues can be long, so be sure to make an early start! The V&A Waterfront is also a great place to spend time. Once a working port, it has been redeveloped into an exciting shopping and leisure hub with a comprehensive array of retail outlets from international brands to exclusive local boutiques, entertainment venues, world-class hotels and restaurants galore. It's also the main departure point for Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela, amongst others, was imprisoned for 18 years. Tours of the jail buildings are conducted by former political prisoners who tell stories of their experiences and lives since their release. Tours do fill up quickly, so we do recommend booking before you leave home to avoid missing out.

Other notable city sights include City Hall, built in 1905 it is one of the last Victorian-style sandstone structures and it was from the balcony of City Hall that Nelson Mandela addressed the world, following his release from prison. For a respite from city life, head for Company Gardens a public park, which contains a rose garden, Japanese garden, fish pond, aviary and tea garden. Alternatively, Kirstenbosch National Botanic Garden is a heavenly national treasure set on the gentle slopes of Table Mountain and home to around 7,000 plant species. The city also has numerous fascinating museums including District Six Museum, Bo-Kaap Museum, Iziko Slave Lodge, The Springbok Experience and Cape Town Diamond Museum.

The Cape Peninsula is a superb day trip from Cape Town with stunning scenic drives over mountains and along the coast. Be sure to stop at Boulders Beach to visit the penguin colony as well as the naval town of Simon's Town, drop by the Constantia wine growing region and climb to the top of the cliff above the Cape of Good Hope at the southern-most tip to admire the Atlantic vistas.

Aside from the wonderful array of shops at the V&A Waterfront, other key shopping areas include Long Street and nearby Church Street in the Central Business District. There are also lots of different markets such as the City Bowl Market and Hout Bay's weekend market, while popular malls included Canal Walk, Cavendish Square and Lifestle on Kloof.

The city certainly comes alive at night offering a cosmopolitan atmosphere and mix of world-rated restaurants, vibrant music venues, impressive clubs, cutting-edge theatres, bars and township shebeens that promise a party that goes on and on! The cuisine on offer is as diverse as the people who make up this great city. There are numerous restaurants to try in the V&A Waterfront as well as Heritage Square, Greenmarket Square and St George's Mall.

However you spend your time in this wonderful city, you'll discover there are few places on earth as enchanting as Cape Town.

While Gauteng may geographically be South Africa's smallest province it is an urban playground of note with the cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria. Johannesburg is South Africa's largest city as well as the financial and commercial heart of the country, while Pretoria is the administrative capital which is both a showpiece of South Africa's sad and controversial past, and of its vibrant new life.

Built on the discovery of gold in 1886, Jo'burg, as it is commonly known, has worked hard over recent years to reinvent itself and is rapidly changing. Visitors are now discovering a beautiful city centre dominated by Victorian and Edwardian colonial architecture, modern skyscrapers, exclusive boutiques, opulent shopping centres, vibrant pavement cafes and entertainment complexes. Art galleries and museums can be found in the cultural districts of Newtown and Braamfontein, while the inner city is becoming a tourist gem.

Change has yet to reach all areas though and some contrasts still exist, most notably between the upmarket neighbourhoods, such as Rosebank, Melrose Arch, Hyde Park and Sandton, and the townships. Soweto, the most renowned of the townships, was brought to prominence during the anti-apartheid uprisings of the 1970s and eye-opening tours give visitors a view of everyday life.

To gain a perspective on the history of South Africa, visit the Apartheid Museum for a fascinating if not disturbing record of South Africa's recent turbulent past. There's also the impressive Constitutional Court, the protector of basic human rights and freedom. While both recapture the darker aspects of South African history, they also conclude with a positive affirmation of new beginnings.

Just an hour outside Johannesburg and well worth a visit, is the Cradle of Humankind, a World Heritage Site known for its unique wealth of fossil-bearing caves which contain a superbly preserved record of the stages in the evolution of humankind over the past four million years.

Pretoria is just a short drive north of Johannesburg and while the country's administrative capital is decidedly less urbane, it is somewhat grander with numerous stately buildings, attractive museums, leafy suburbs and jacaranda-lined streets. Statues, monuments and landmarks commemorate the country's history and the most famous is the crescent-shaped Union Buildings. It was here, in 1994, where Nelson Mandela took office as President. Just outside the central business district is the Transvaal Museum, the country's leading natural history museum.

However, Pretoria is not all about the past. It is a modern and growing city with first-rate shopping, beautiful parks and gardens, top restaurants and a lively arts community.


North West Province, which extends west from Gauteng to the Botswana border and the Kalahari Desert, is blessed with breathtaking scenic beauty, vast plains of African bushveld, superb game parks and the mind-boggling opulence of Sun City Resort where you'll discover magnificent sporting and leisure facilities.

The world-famous Sun City Resort lies in the heart of untamed bushveld just over two hours drive from Johannesburg. Far enough from South Africa's major cities to qualify as a real getaway from hectic city life, Sun City Resort offers a myriad of leisure and recreation options for the entire family. Activities range from adventure sports and safari options to a fantastic golf course, Valley of the Waves waterpark and one of the biggest casinos in Africa. Sun City is not just a resort it's an experience!

Right next door is the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park which is set in the crater of a long extinct volcano. Prior to 1979 Pilanesberg was farmland, but thanks to Operation Genesis – the largest game translocation ever undertaken at the time – nearly 6,000 animals of 19 difference species were introduced to the reserve. Today this dramatic landscape and its unique ecological richness supports a wide variety of plants, over 7,000 animals and 300 bird species that are not often found living side by side. In fact virtually all of the animal species native to southern Africa can be found here including populations of lion, leopard, black and white rhino, elephant and buffalo (the Big Five). Activities within the Park include game drives or wildlife safaris, either self-guided or guided, game walks, birding and balloon safaris.

Further north is the Madikwe Game Reserve, an enthralling joint venture between the state, the private sector and local communities. One of the largest game reserves in South Africa, Madikwe is a unique family friendly malaria-free safari destination home to a variety of wildlife, including the Big Five and one of the most successful wild dog rehabilitation programmes in the country. Several exclusive game lodges have been established in this reserve and activities include game drives and bush walks.
