Try surfing and hiking in the city
Travellers planning to book activity holidays in Cape Town will be able to visit rugged attractions during their stay in the city, according to a travel writer.
Harriet O'Brien, writing for the Independent, expressed her belief that the city is the jewel in the crown of the Western Cape, which spreads across the southern edge of Africa.
She said: "Cape Town [is] a glamorous international gateway presenting easy access to a host of beaches, to the lush and dramatic mountains around which the region's burgeoning wine industry thrives, to the rugged attractions of the Cape Peninsula and, further east, to the natural playground of the Garden Route."
Ms O'Brien added that there are a number of shopping opportunities in the city, but thrill-seekers will be able to enjoy adrenaline-fuelled activities such as hiking and surfing.
Holidaymakers should also pay a visit to St George's Cathedral, she added, as this was the former seat of Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
