In this ‘Mother City’, there is such a diversity of attractions and activities to keep you entertained from gardens, beaches, vineyards, museums, monuments, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront to amazing gastronomical experiences.

Here are some blog posts by some of our favourite bloggers on things to do in Cape Town to help you get lots of inspiration for the ultimate trip.
