The Mother City's Loving Embrace
Samuel Johnson once said that 'when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.' Well, the modern day equivalent could well be the Mother City. With it's vibrant centre, encompassing lively Long Street and colourful Bo-Kaap; the dramatic and dreamy beaches of the rugged atlantic coastline, including hip Camps Bay; the bustling V&A Waterfront; and the soaring might of Table Mountain, there's so much to re-energise your lust for life in captivating Cape Town.
Insider Tip:Take the bus for a cheap and convenient way to see the city. The Hop on Hop off bus is a great way to acclimatise and get a feel for the city. Other than taxis, or driving yourself, this is the only way to get to the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, so it's worth factoring that in to your day on the bus. Otherwise, the MyCITI buses are excellent value, easy to use and can take you pretty much everywhere you could want to visit.
