Benefits of Booking Excursions in Cape Town through Mycitytrip.com:

The cosmopolitan city of Cape Town is home to an incredible range of things to see and do. From epic mountains and beaches to cool art and a fascinating history, it's a place you don't want to miss.

One of the best ways to see Cape Town is on a classic road trip. Drive yourself or join a guided tour of this rugged peninsula's highlights, including cute bohemian towns, dramatic coastal landscapes, thrilling activities and some of the freshest seafood you'll find anywhere.

Table Mountain

Table Mountain, one of the world's most iconic landmarks, is a natural wonder that has attracted millions of visitors. Whether it's covered in moody clouds or showing off against a crisp cloudless blue sky, it's a must-see for any visitor to Cape Town.

A popular destination for both locals and tourists, this stunning mountain is surrounded by Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) which makes it a perfect place to explore. The park offers a range of attractions and activities for everyone from beginners to experts.

There are many different routes up Table Mountain, ranging from easy strolls to more challenging hikes. The fastest way is to take a guided tour with an experienced guide who'll walk you up to the cable car station and back.

Hiking up Table Mountain is a great way to get a closer look at the rich flora and fauna of the area. You'll also spot adorable dassies (rock rabbits) and baboons as you trek along.

Cape Town

Robben Island

The 580-hectare oval-shaped Robben Island is an absolute must-see attraction for every visitor to Cape Town. It once housed the maximum security prison where political activist and lawyer Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 of his 27 years in jail.

The Island was first discovered by Portuguese navigator Batolomeu Dias in 1488 and was used for a long time as a military and naval base. Later, it became a refueling station for ships passing through Table Bay.

From the mid-1800s, it was also used as a prison. Various kinds of prisoners were sent to Robben Island, including criminals, prostitutes, lepers and the mentally ill.

The South African government took control of the Island in 1961 and built a maximum-security prison there. This prison was known for its brutality and inhumane treatment of its prisoners. Inmates were isolated and had little contact with the outside world – they could only receive two letters a year. They were forced to work in the lime quarry and endured harsh beatings and solitary confinement.

Cape Town

Two Oceans Aquarium

With more than 3,000 living sea creatures from the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town is an aquatic wonderland for marine life lovers. This attraction, opened in 1995, has a wide range of exhibits that showcase the unique and diverse species found in these oceans.

Besides the fascinating exhibitions, the Aquarium is also dedicated to education and conservation. It has many display boards that tell the story of the animals in the Aquarium and the efforts to protect them.

Children will love to visit the I&J Children's Play Centre, where they can get involved in an array of interactive arts and crafts, puppet shows, and fun activities. They'll also have fun exploring the Touch Pool Exhibit, which features a variety of sea creatures that children can handle and feel with their hands.

The Two Oceans Aquarium is a must-visit for visitors and locals alike. Its spectacular displays, captivating activities and educational programs make it a great destination for families with kids of all ages.

Cape Town

District Six Museum

District Six (also known as Distrik Ses) was once a thriving, mixed neighborhood that was populated by traders, artisans and freed slaves. However, under the apartheid system, it became a white-only area and many people were forcibly removed.

The District Six Museum is a memorial to the former residents of this area and aims to bring their story to light. The museum contains a collection of photographs, paintings, street signs and other historical materials that were donated by the former residents.

There are guided tours and other activities that are facilitated by ex-residents. These can be booked in advance.

The museum focuses on the destruction of District Six and the effects of Apartheid. It is an interesting way to learn about the history of South Africa. It is also a sobering place to visit. It is a must-visit when in Cape Town. It is also a very powerful experience to be taken on a tour with an ex-resident.
