It’s no wonder why Cape Town continues to draw in a diverse range of travellers and visitors all year round. From the beautiful white sands to the impressive presence of the magnificent Table Mountain, the mother city of Africa is certainly a region I’ll be returning to.

Something for Everyone

Every time I embark on a holiday adventure, as well as fulfilling my own aspirations, I always have an excitable family following very closely behind. For most, this tug of war situation always seems to cause unnecessary tension and family feuds, but I was pleasantly surprised by the ease and relaxation of the whole holiday experience. From cantankerous teens and energetic toddlers to middle-aged men and the elder generation, the preferences of all my companions were more than sufficiently satisfied. It was quite clear that the vast array of exciting opportunities made available in Cape Town was working its magic.

From Reflection to Adventure

From exciting adventures in the sun and thrilling outdoor activity to the energetic night life, Cape Town boasts more than enough to please any of its visitors. It’s a setting of beautiful panoramas, breathtaking scenic wonders, bountiful rivers, historical landmarks and architectural masterpieces. While I was quite happy to loll about and capture the sun-kissed rays on the luxuriously soft sands all day, my relations were off exploring the floral kingdom, embarking on fast paced activities and savouring South African culture. If I could acclaim any particular destinations, the tranquillity of the wine lands of Paarl and Constantia, as well as the beautiful coastal areas of Blouberg, Bantry Bay and Camps Bay were settings for most of my memorable and happy holiday experiences. For the daring younger generation, I was told that scuba diving, sky diving and wind surfing comes highly recommended. Breezing through the stylish shopping boutiques and bustling Greenmarket Square flea market provided the females of the trip with particular happiness. Needless to say we returned to the UK with a considerably heavier suitcase and an inevitable luggage fee.

Savour South African Culture

Together with the spirit and friendly nature of the South African community we were drawn in by the unique characteristics of the city. From the lively music and dancing to the scrumptious cuisine and fascinating festivals, the streets are brought alive by the unique Cape Town soul traditions. If one thing is worth mentioning it’s the impeccable standards and of the Cape Town hotels and the welcome shown by the natives and staff who run them. Luxurious, yet affordable (two words you don’t see associated with each other much these financially stressful days) we were surrounded with array of exciting opportunity in our hotel itself. For those who don’t wish to travel out of their comfort zone, there is no need to panic, as most accommodation is central to everything you need.

Conclusion

The trip of my dreams and I can safely speak for the family too, the Cape was an escape from the dull and dismal daily routine at home. With the warm summer climate all year through combined with the wonders of this unique destination you’ll certainly be hungry and pining for more on your return home.

    Reading this reminds me how privileged and fortunate I am to live in the Mother City. It’s always heart-warming to read someone else’s affectionate words about Cape Town.

    I wholeheartedly encourage anybody undecided to take a trip over – as Hannah says, there’s something for everyone.
