There is so much to do and see in Cape Town, you really will not have a dull moment.

Table Mountain is the main attraction,a short cable car ride takes you to the top where magificent views of the Cape can be seen.

We went for a very informative tour with an experienced botanist at the Kirstenbosch Gardens – they also have many musical concerts and festivals here.

The V&A waterfront is always bustling with activity – there are many shops and restaurants. My favourite restaurant here is Willoughby’s and Co – they always have fresh and flavourful sushi and other Asian cuisine. Robben Island trips launch from the V&A as well and is a must-see as this is where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years.

Then there is the super trendy seaside town of Camps Bay and Clifton. This is the upmarket side of the Atlantic seaboard, the properties here are very sought after!

You cannot beat Long street for its vibey atmosphere, this street lined with restaurants and pubs is packed on most nights especially Saturday nights! There are fantastic restaurants in Cape Town, a highlight on our most recent trip was trying out the No 1 restaurant in South Africa 2013 –The Test Kitchen, the chocolate dessert platter was a masterpieece!!!!

And then of course there are the winelands where you can do cellar tours, wine tastings and indulge in the finest food pepared by top chefs. Franschhoek has a cool classic car museum, we did a delicious chocolate and wine pairing in Stellenbosch and just soaked up the beauty of this area!
