On the tip of the old continent, Cape Town is undoubtedly one of the world's most beautiful cities. With Table Mountain as a majestic backdrop and Cape of Good Hope along the peninsula, it's a stunning city for nature lovers. Rising up 1000 metres, , Table Mountain's flat top is often covered with a tablecloth of cloud,like a layer of cream on a delicious cake. Signal Hill and Lion's Head form a semicircle round the picturesque residential quarter of Oranjezicht and the CBD, leading to the sea at the Victoria and Albert Waterfront. Explore the Castle of Good Hope, the oldest building in the country, wander through the woods of Newlands Forest, head down to Simonstown to dive with sharks or fur seals, visit Company Gardens or Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, hit up the vineyards inland, walk for miles on Noordhoek beach, or just relax one of the many gorgeous beaches around the city.
