Cape Town - Sightseeing Tours and Activities

Whatever it is you may want from a holiday, you'll no doubt hind here in Cape Town. Home to Table Mountain, this South African city has proven time and again that it can capture the heart's of those who visit – come for the fun and leave with memories that will last a lifetime.

Sightseeing destinations in Cape Town

Table Mountain is obviously a sight to behold, but other than this flat-topped mountain, there are other places in Cape Town equally deserving to be explored. Company's Garden, Green Point Park and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens all serve as little pieces of heaven within the city. Cape Town is also home to many visual delights (it was named World Design Capital in 2014) which can be seen in the brightly colored Bo-Kaap, the amazing restaurants and bars and of course, the wonderful street art in the East City and Woodstock. Driving the coastal roads to Cape Point also allows you to see views that are just breathtaking.

Top tour activities in Cape Town

There are lots of fun activities to do in Cape Town which would leave lasting memories. Here's a few suggestions:

  • Experience the wildlife – From July to November of each year, Southern Right Whales come to Hermanus, a seaside town just outside of Cape Town, and you can observe them from the shore. For the more daring, cage diving with Great White Sharks off the shore of Gansbaai is definitely on the table. Those looking for a safari adventure can consider the Aquila Game Reserve which is the nearest to Cape Town.
  • Get a different view of the city – There's no experience quite like seeing a city from way up in a helicopter. You can see a great mix of landscapes including craggy peaks and beautiful shores. Another way to enjoy the beauty of Cape Town is to take a boat tour.
  • Go an a cultural adventure – Discover the cultural history of Cape Town by seeing the houses located at Bo-Kaap (known as the Malay Quarter), learning about the Xhosa culture in Langa and seeing artists work at Gugulethu.

Top tour attractions in Cape Town

Cape Town is blessed with so many sites to see and here are some of the best:

  • Table Mountain National Park – Apart from Table Mountain itself, the park features a range of other interesting attractions. You can watch penguins at the Boulders Penguin Colony or hike at Lion's Head.
  • Heart of Capetown Museum – Housed in the Groote Schuur Hospital where the first human heart transplant took place, this museum honors those who took part in the feat as well as highlights the ethical and moral implications regarding the procedure at that time.
  • Cliffton Beaches – Conveniently named First Beach, Second Beach, Third Beach and Fourth Beach, you will find activities suited to your interests on each location. The first one features the strongest surf, the second is populated by students and the fourth is where yachts are anchored and attracts families.
