Ok, Table Mountain is not really an insiders´ tip. But we have a special recommendation for you: Enjoy the most beautiful moment on top: jump on the cable car at 7pm (latest ascent at 7.30pm), grab a glass of wine and enjoy the most spectacular sundown before diving into the city by going down with the last one at 8.30pm.
One of the must-sees for sure is the island where Nelson Mandela had to spend most of his life in prison. The ship departs from V&A Waterfront at Nelson Mandela gangway: It takes about 30 minutes – lucky you accompanied by dolphins – to get to the island which is only 12 kilometers away. Bear in mind: this not an excursion for short notice. Especially during peak season tickets are sold up front for two weeks or more. Our tip: book online at www.webtickets.co.za
For sure you find this one in the travel guides. But it is much more than the largest and biggest botanical garden of South Africa. On Sundays at 5pm you can join concerts given on the open-air stage. Johnny Clegg, the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra – and if you strike it lucky Brian Adams, who´s leisure residence is around the corner, are just some of names of the variety you can be part of.
The mother of all waterfronts looking at worldwide harbour-entertainments. A well-set mixture of old and new buildings, hotels, manifold gastronomy, shopping, events and music. Locals love it as much as tourists. Out tip: the best sushi in town you get at Willoughby – easy to recognize: a queue meandering through the shopping center.
