Cape Town & The Western Cape

OVERVIEW

Cape Town is the most cosmopolitan and buzzing city in the African continent and possibly in the world. The “Table Mountain” skyline and a stunning coastline give Cape Town a setting hard to beat. A coastal drive to the Table Mountain National Park, also home to Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope is definitely in order. Fabulous real estate, restaurants and cafes mark the drive with a feel reminiscent of the glamour and glitz of St. Tropez. Within the city centre, the V&A Waterfront is a quick and easy tourist hangout with no shortage of restaurants, entertainment and shopping in a beautiful marina and Table Mountain Setting.

Within an hour’s drive from Cape Town is the Winelands district known for its vineyards and wineries and a day long wine-tasting trip is highly recommended. Better still is to stay in one of the B&Bs in this beautiful countryside with loads of character.

This is a destination with something for everyone including golfers, who can find a bunch of spectacular and challenging layouts in the city and its surrounds. With almost all year Mediterranean climate thrown in the mix, Cape Town is good for everything and golf, all the time!
