Consistently voted as one of the world’s top travel destinations (by both tourists and the travel industry alike), Cape Town is a real gem on the southwestern tip of the African crown. Sandwiched between a breathtaking Atlantic coastline and towering mountain peaks, you’d be rather hard-pressed to find a cosmopolitan city with more natural beauty and exciting attractions than the Mother City, as Cape Town is affectionately known by locals.
With such a diverse range of sights and attractions, it’s no wonder the travel world has fallen in love with Cape Town. From shark cage diving and spectacular mountain adventures to world-class restaurants and award-winning winelands, there’s something for every kind of traveler in and around this African city.
And to celebrate their new direct route to Cape Town, Singapore Airlines recently featured 5 of our best Cape Town tours and excursions to showcase the best this incredible city has to offer.
Wine & Dine
The Cape winelands region is renowned for producing some of the world’s finest wines in some of the most beautiful scenery you could imagine. Stellenbosch is the historic centre of the wine-producing area, but the region is made up of a number of equally picturesque towns and districts, including amongst many others Franschoek, Paarl, Tulbagh and Wellington.
City Bowl Discovery
With an unmistakable flat-topped mountain backdrop, the Cape Town city centre is rich in both history and natural beauty. Explore the city’s historic streets and discover its diverse and vibrant urban life. Highlights of any city bowl tour would include a trip to the shopping mecca at the V & A Waterfront, a stroll down the bustling Bree and Long streets as well as a leisurely walk through the stunning Company Gardens, an impeccably manicured and maintained park that flanks the country’s parliament buildings right in the middle of the city.
Table Mountain Abseil Adventure
The iconic table-like peak that towers above Cape Town is known for providing residents and visitors with unparalleled views of the city below and the adjacent bays and mountain ranges. While a trip to the top of Table Mountain is an absolute must for any visitor, perhaps the most thrilling way to enjoy these vistas is by taking a Table Mountain abseiling tour. The descent down the mountain with the Atlantic Ocean below you and the Twelve Apostle range at your side will leave you breathless in wonder – and with a major adrenaline rush!
Dive with the Greats
One of the most exhilarating experiences you could have while visiting Cape Town is diving with the mighty great white shark. The waters around the Cape are known to be prime spots for catching a glimpse of these awesome creatures in their natural habitat.
