After many posts written on Cape Town (Cape Town) in South Africa, we put them all together here on a 4-day trip so you do not have to worry or waste time. Here you will find tips on how to visit the city, how to get around, what are the most important places and attractions of Cape Town not to be missed.
What to expect from Cape Town?
The whole of South Africa is enchanting and, of course, Cape Town is the icing on the cake. There are many people who compare it with Rio de Janeiro, for the mixture of nature and city. This is where you will find the largest number of mulattos: unlike Johannesburg, here the mix of whites and blacks is more common. Enjoy what the city offers to relax, watch the sunset, sip wine and keep in mind one of the most beautiful trips you’ve ever done!
Day 1- Table Mountain and Kirstenbosch Gardens
Anyone who has read our post on Table Mountain knows that it is not entirely possible to completely plan the climb to Table Mountain because of the weather. This is because the weather is so crazy that in 10 minutes everything can change and the cable car does not work if the weather is not the least good. So I advise you to plan yourself to get on the first day of the morning, if you do not, try until one day (hopefully) you will manage to climb.
So go see absolutely for those who love flowers. The nice thing is that one is very close to the other.
The V & A Waterfront is one of the most touristic places in the city, with shops, restaurants and many tourists. It’s beautiful, but to be honest it was the part of the city that I least liked being too artificial. Even so, it’s worth taking a look. Enjoy that you are here and visit Robben Island, the island where Mandela was imprisoned.
If you have more time: the Rhodes Memorial is a nice place for a lunch. So, it is worth again to the center and meet Bo-Kaap, a neighborhood of colorful and full of history houses. Today, the place has become so hype that gentrification is occurring, namely the Malaysians who lived there are originally selling their homes because they can not afford to keep them down and moving farther. Who is buying these houses are usually young white hipsters and subscribers.
