Table Mountain, is known as one of the 7 wonders of the natural world.
Robben Island, is 45 minutes off shore. This is where the story of South Africa, was told and written.
In between these two these two, lies the colourful city of Cape Town.
Robben Island is a sincere and unproductive scratch of land, once a former lazar house/colony and recently the enforced home of Nelson Mandela, whose image and aspirations dominate Cape Town, today!
Visitors are either able to use the cable cart to go up or walk up which takes an average of four hours.
When on top, you will be welcomed by the amazing view of Cape Town, Dassies, Guinea pigs, and another species.
The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront also known as the V & A, offer visitors a scenic backdrop to a wealth of shopping, restaurants and tourist experiences, such as aquariums. The story are familiar, such as a 1992 revamp of docklands that have also been in decline since the 1960s.
If you are interested in the history of Apartheid in South Africa, a tour of District Six is a must. Visitors are able to take the hop-on, hop-off bus. To keep its dystopian feel of the separation, District Six was the name given to a vibrant, multi-cultural municipal area re-zoned as whites-only. 60,000 residents were removed forcibly.
