Answers to Frequently Asked Travel Questions

Cape Town : Colloquially named the Mother City. Cape Town, South Africa’s second-largest city, ranks among the most beautiful in the world. With its largerthan-life mountain overlooking the City Bowl, harbour, white beaches and Robben Island beyond, this is a tourist’s playground. Two World Heritage Sites, the sprawling Winelands, untouched nature reserves, beautiful botanic gardens and a buzzing waterfront are just the start of your adventure when you visit this special city. With a population of 3.7 million, Cape Town is South Africa’s second most populous city, a quintessential melting pot of creativity, cuisine and colour. Its strategic geographic position at the tip of Africa has seen foreign visitors stopping off at the Cape since the 1400s, each contributing unique cultural influences that make up the fabric of modern-day Cape Town.

In fact, you’ll find everything from paved roads and highways to gourmet restaurants, five-star hotels, farmers’ markets, museums, and malls here. And while it might be exhilarating to picture a plethora of wild animals roaming the streets, don’t expect to share the crosswalk with any lions, elephants, or giraffes. While some villages that border game reserves have to deal with the occasional predator stalking their cattle, you won’t spot any wild animals outside the safari.
