It’s clear why Cape Town is Africa’s most visited holiday destination. One of the many reasons that travelers choose to visit Cape Town is its abundance of scenic beauty and natural attractions.

Parts of the city and its suburbs wind about the steep slopes of Table Mountain (3,563 feet [1,086 meters] high) and neighboring peaks and rim the shores of Table Bay; other parts lie on the flats below the slopes or stretch southward across the flats to False Bay.
Its varying landscape offers routes and attractions to forests, beaches, gardens, mountains, oceans, grasslands, nature reserves, the Cape Winelands, as well the countryside.
