Cape Town City


Cape Town is the most popular city in South Africa and the legislative capital of South Africa, with 2.9 million inhabitants according to the 2001 census. Its area is 2,499 km2 and the city is famous for its harbor, picturesque nature, and some popular areas such as Table Mountain and Cape Point.  Cape Town is the oldest and most beautiful city in South Africa, with the Table Mountain in the back and the white sand of the beach underfoot. Those who live there say that visitors need no more than three days exploring it.


Cape Town was originally a port for Dutch ships sailing on East Africa, India, and the continent of Asia. It was founded in 1652 and was the first permanent European settlement in the sub-Saharan region. The city is currently famous for Cape Town International Airport, the second busiest airport in South Africa.


The fine wines produced in the suburbs and the relentless artistic activity around are other major attractions of the city located in the far southwest of the country, on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.


The energy of the bohemian "Long Street", Cape Town's main and longest street, is always magnetism, day or night, when the balconies of its towering Victorian buildings teem with everlasting youth.


In 2020 Cape Town became the first African city from which to celebrate World Jazz Day, as it was chosen by UNESCO to be the venue for hosting events celebrating World Jazz Day.


Weather in Cape Town


Cape Town has a Mediterranean climate, with warm and rainy winters and hot and dry summers.


The best time to visit the city is between October and April. The number of tourists decreases dramatically in the summer, especially in the months of June and July, due to the hot weather.



Tourist Attractions:


1-Victoria and Alfred Waterfront

When the city meets the sea, you will have reached the Victoria and Alfred waterfront that lies between Robben Island and Table Mountain in the heart of Cape Town's beating harbor, the oldest port in South Africa! On an area of 123 hectares, apartments, hotels, recreational and cultural facilities, restaurants, cafes and shopping centers are distributed, and it is no wonder then that this spot attracts more than 23 million visitors annually! But if you spend your vacation with your children, then you have to take them there, of course! What do you think about watching a movie in the cinema in 4D technology or riding in the Cape Wheel?!


2-Table Mountain

It is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and has been, for more than 100 years, a reserve that includes more than 1,460 species of fynbos, in addition to a number of rare animals. Imagine that in 5 minutes, on the cable car, you can reach the mountain, which is also called Table Mountain in the local language, as you will be 3500 feet above the city! In this unique location, enjoy what your eyes see of beautiful creatures and plants that you cannot find anywhere else in the world.


3-Signal Hill and the Noon Gun

Signal Hill extends from Lion's Head towards the Victoria and Alfred waterfront, where people flock daily to attend the noon gun launch, one of Cape Town's oldest traditions, which was fired as a signal for incoming ships in the past.


4-Great White Shark Cage Dives

If you are one of those who enjoys adventure, but rather with a strong iron heart, you can dive with the sharks in Cape Town in an experience that will truly be exceptional in your life! This activity may be kind of crazy, but you will find a lot of operators ready to drop you in the deep blue waters inside a cave to meet those huge marine animals that can devour humans  


5-Kirstenbosch National Botancial Gardens

You can also find beautiful flowers that take you on a journey into dreams in the large number of botanical gardens in Cape Town, as the flower season extends from August to late September. If you happen to be in town during this period, you are also invited to attend the annual Hopfield Fenbos Fair, one of the biggest events highlighting the importance of preserving the Fynbos biodiversity directly adjacent to Hopfield.



A city desired by the Muslim traveler who finds many Muslim-owned guesthouses, tour operators and restaurants that cater to the religious needs of the tourist. There are many mosques in Cape Town, up to 150 mosques, and the “First Mosque” (1794) and “The Palm Tree” (1807) are the oldest in the city.
