Cape Town

Cape Town

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens

Set against the eastern slopes of Table Mountain in Cape Town, Kirstenbosch is rated as one of the most magnificent botanical gardens in the world. It is actually part of a larger nature reserve that is dedicated to preserving the diverse flora of this region and other parts of South Africa. It is part of the Cape Floral Kingdom which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. This is a must visit while in Cape Town if you love plants or learning about unique habitats.

Bo-Kaap

Also known as the "Cape Malay Quarter" this lively Cape Town neighborhood is famous for its colorful houses, ranging from lime-green and pink to orange. Founded by former slaves in the 1750s, it has a fascinating history and is a true melting pot of cultures. Walk through the neighborhood and absorb the atmosphere and consider stopping for a traditional Malay meal at a local restaurant or visit the Bo-Kaap Museum to learn more about the history of the neighborhood and the people that call it home.

District Six Museum

This moving and informative museum documents the history of this vibrant area that was bulldozed during the Apartheid years. Through the use of photographs and testimonials the moving story of the 60,000 people who were forcibly displaced comes to life. For history buffs this is the one museum in Cape Town that is not to be missed.

Cape Town Diamond Museum

Did someone say diamonds? South Africa has storied history of diamond mining that is chronicled at this museum. Diamonds were discovered in South Africa in 1867 and within ten years 95% of the worldwide supply was coming from this rugged country at the southern tip of Africa. From the birth of a stone to the final polishing to colorful characters the story of diamonds in South Africa is a fascinating one. Add to that the convenient location in the heart of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and it is easy to add this to your visit.
