Cape Town, the “Mother City”, or the world’s most fabulous city, is the oldest city in South Africa and has a cultural heritage spanning more than 300 years. Robben Island, the former home of Nelson Mandela and several other political prisoners who fought against the apartheid government is only one of the highlights. Table Mountain, one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature will be visited by the Aerial Cableway, as well as most of Cape Town’s best attractions.Less
