Your guide to Cape Town

All About Cape Town

South Africa’s breathtaking scenery and bustling cosmopolitan energy are perfectly encapsulated in the sprawling city of Cape Town, one the country’s three capitals. From the stunning backdrop of Table Mountain to the panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the UNESCO World Heritage site of Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Cape Town has no shortage of impressive sights to see — not to mention a thriving cultural scene that’s quickly transforming the city into a veritable metropolis.

Whether your perfect day in Cape Town means touring the city’s top wineries or tucking into crayfish hauled directly from the sea to your plate, you are sure to find something to hold your attention. Spend easy days sunbathing on white-sand beaches, go snorkeling at Pyramid Rock, and if you are interested in checking out the local wildlife, head to the Boulders Penguin Colony to see some 3,000 African penguins.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Cape Town?

Due to its Mediterranean climate, the city typically enjoys warm, dry summers from December to February and cooler, wetter winters from June through August. Cape Town Pride takes place every year at the end of February and is a celebration of the LGBTQ community. Tweede Nuwe Jaar, or Second New Year, happens every year on January 2 and is one of the longest-held festivals in the city, which sees the capital turn into one big carnival with parades, dancing, and traditional music. It’s a celebration of freedom and hope and continues to educate locals and tourists alike on the area’s history.


What are the top things to do in Cape Town?

Neighbourgoods Market

Neighbourgoods Market, tucked into the trendy Woodstock neighborhood, is a buzzing food market that has quickly become a symbol of the next generation of South Africa’s diverse culture. Wander between stalls, snacking on everything from burgers to vegetarian cakes, before checking out the wares from artisans and local designers that set up shop there too.

Table Mountain Cableway

Named for its flat top, Table Mountain is one of Cape Town’s most iconic destinations. Whether you make your way up by foot or by tram, ascending the 3,562 feet to the top is an essential experience. There are a variety of trails up the mountain that vary in difficulty. But the easiest, fastest, and arguably most scenic way up is via cable car, which will have you soaring high above the rocky valley, with the sea on the horizon as you climb to the peak.

Wander Kalk Bay

This seaside suburb is beloved for its trendy cafe scene, quirky vintage shops, and English-influenced restaurants to grab a bite. You can spend an afternoon strolling along the shore, perusing bric-a-brac and antique treasures behind colorfully-painted facades, and end the evening with tea and fish and chips.
