Cape Town is a cultural highlight of South Africa tours
A tour of South Africa will bring you everywhere from bustling cities to beautiful natural scenery, but in Cape Town you can experience both at the same time. The most popular tourist destination on the continent, the coastal city offers picturesque views of the ocean, pristine beaches and an opportunity to experience South African culture firsthand, and there are several landmarks throughout the city you should make sure not to skip.
If you're looking to experience the unique culture of Cape Town, the Bo-Kaap area will certainly not disappoint. This section of the city is known primarily for its streets lined with brightly colored buildings, but it is also one of the most historically important parts of Cape Town. Many of its residents are descendants of people who came from Malaysia, Indonesia and other countries in Africa, which has helped foster a multi-cultural atmosphere you won't find anywhere else.
Cape Town has more to offer than a rich and culturally diverse history, it also has impressive natural scenery. The best place to experience the city's natural appeal is along its many miles of coastline whether its' at Boulders Beach, which is populated with African Penguins, or Muizenberg Beach, which is among the most popular stretches of coast in the city.
To fully appreciate the appeal of Cape Town, you have to make a trip to Table Mountain. Arguably the most recognizable landmark in the city, you can either hike or take a tram to the top of the 3,558-foot peak, but regardless of how you get there the views from the top are still breathtaking.
Several days in Cape Town may have you antsy to get back into the wilderness, and a tour of Botswana may be the best solution. Specifically, a visit to Moremi Game Reserve will bring you to face to many of the world's most famous creatures.
