About Cape Town


Cape Town – Where Inspiration turns ideas into action

Historically the place where trade routes meet and considered a gateway to Africa for business and leisure, Cape Town has long held a fascination for visitors from across the globe. Firmly rooted in its African heritage and culture, Cape Town, and the Western Cape Province (the Cape) is South Africa’s most progressive and innovative region where local government, the private sector and academia work together to create one of Africa’s leading cities for business, learning and leisure. Outperforming the rest of the country in terms of economic growth, the province also benefits from local government initiatives to help drive international investment, trade, and tourism in the Province. With Table Mountain as backdrop the Mother City, as it is affectionately known by South Africans, is set within the unique Cape Floral Region, and surrounded by the internationally acclaimed Winelands that stretch from coast to coast, Cape Town welcomes the world to a vibrant cultural experience that is as hospitable as it is unique.

Cape Town is the only city in the world to lie on two oceans – On one side of the peninsula lies the Atlantic; on the other the Indian Ocean. Gourmets and lovers of fine wines have a treat in store, with the Constantia Winelands producing some of the finest wines worldwide.

Slightly further afield are the many South African Wine Estates that offer historic, unrivalled natural beauty and some of the best wine tasting in the world. The area is criss-crossed with wine routes, with the Durbanville Hills route a mere twenty minute drive from Cape Town. Continuing further one finds the renowned wine-producing areas of Paarl, Franschhoek, and Stellenbosch.
