Cape Town Table mountain house
Cape Town a modern metropolis sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the majestic Table Mountain is the ideal start or end to any African Adventure, on the same hemisphere as the UK makes it a perfect long weekend or short break. Just minutes away from the historic Cape Dutch Wineland towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek and the beach towns of Camp’s Bay and Clifton Beach, hiring a car and  touring this beautiful region is a breeze, or enjoy a dual destination and explore both in full with independent tours. Visit the World Heritage Site of Robben Island, a former leper colony and prison, once ‘home’ to Nelson Mandela, where former prisoners will guide you through their prison and their experiences. From here, explore District Six where during the Apartheid years, the local township was forcibly removed, then on to a local township where they were rehoused and still remain.Head down to the dramatic Cape Peninsula, where the two oceans meet, with stunning views from the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, enjoy the antics of the indigenous Baboons, visit Boulders Beach African Penguin Reserve, go Whale Watching or the adrenalin junkie Shark Cave Diving. Enjoy luxurious hotels, chic boutique style accommodation, with fantastic shopping and eclectic cuisine in stunning restaurants, complimented by sumptuous local wines.
