Nearby Attractions
Table Mountain National Parkit’s at the end of our garden
The majestic pinnacles of the Twelve Apostles are part of the Table Mountain National Park, which surrounds the hotel. The park, known for its rich biodiversity, is home to about 2,000 species of plants (more than the number found throughout the entire British Isles), most of them fynbos, which forms one of the world’s six plant kingdoms all on its own. We’ll be happy to provide you with maps, and a delicious picnic!

Cape Point
The southernmost point of the African continent, this is a spectacular finger of land where the deep blue waters of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans go head to head. Covered in endemic fynbos, it boasts a wealth of picturesque bays, beaches, rolling green hills and valleys. It’s within the Cape Floral Region, a World Heritage Site, and as well as offering a fascinating profusion of vegetation there are huge numbers of pelagic birds as well as zebra, eland, and the many species of reptiles and small mammals.

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden
South Africa’s world-famous national botanical garden, set against the backdrop of Table Mountain and Devil’s Peak, and home to more than 22,000 indigenous plants - part of the Cape Floral Kingdom.

Robben Island
Just over 5 miles offshore from Cape Town the island was declared a World Heritage Site in 1999, and over the centuries has been used as a prison, a hospital, a mental institution, and a military base. It is most famous for being a political prison during apartheid. Nelson Mandela spent 18 years of the 27 years he was imprisoned on Robben Island. Tours depart daily from the V&A Waterfront.

Cape Winelands
A tour of the Western Cape wine growing regions is immensely rewarding – discover wonderful natural landscapes, delve into a wealth of history and heritage as well as tasting some of the world’s finest wines.

In Cape Town itself the Constantia Valley is home to some of South Africa’s oldest and most famous estates. Durbanville and the Helderberg also offer excellent wine experiences. If you venture further from Cape Town, the regions of Stellenbosch, Paarl, Wellington, Franschhoek and Robertson offer a multitude of exceptional wineries.

Camps Bay
The upmarket suburb of Camps Bay has a typical village atmosphere and is home to some of the trendiest restaurants and bars and one of the most beautiful beaches in Cape Town. Local life is casual and in the evening residents and holiday makers can be found enjoying sundowners at the many sidewalk bistros and restaurants on the strip.

Camps Bay is the perfect base from which to explore the wonders of the Cape. Tours of the Winelands, Robben Island and other attractions, aero plane, yacht and helicopter charters as well as adventure tours such as sand boarding, mountain climbing, deep sea fishing, parachuting, paragliding and surfing can all be booked at nearby service providers.

The windless beaches of Clifton are probably Cape Town’s most glamorous with the attractive and trendy folk flocking to it in summer. Clifton has four adjoining coves where you walk down stone stairways between luxurious bungalows to white sands. Bikinis and sunbathing are more the order of the day than swimming, as the water of the Atlantic Ocean is often icily cold.

Hout Bay
Hout Bay has a diversity of sites to explore and activities in which to participate. It is a rich botanical area most famous for the Protea, which is South Africa’s national flower. There are 12 recognized mountain hikes ranging from easy walking routes to strenuous clambering over rocks.

The harbour at the end of the beach offers a number of charter boats available for sea cruises. The seal colony at Duiker Island and a nearby shipwreck are popular attractions.

V & A Waterfront
Situated in the heart of Cape Town’s working harbour, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is well-established as Cape Town’s premier shopping and tourist destination with boutiques, restaurants, hotels, apartments and offices only a few of the attractions on offer.
