Cape Town Tourism - Table Mountain

Cape Point Partnership

At the most south-westerly point of Africa, where cliffs appear to tumble into the ocean, lies a very special place – the Cape Point Nature Reserve. The point is also known as the Cape of Storms, so named by explorer Bartolomeu Dias. 

The Cape Point Nature Reserve is home to baboons, zebras, wild buck and one of the oldest lighthouses in South Africa.

A nature lover's and maritime history buff's delight, the reserve is run by the Cape Point Partnership, forms part of the Table Mountain National Park and belongs to a World Heritage Site.

There are many things to do at Cape Point, including taking a trip on the Flying Dutchman funicular railway to the top of the point.

Museum of Gems & Jewellery

PRINS & PRINS DIAMONDS MUSEUM OF GEMS AND JEWELLERY

This unique museum project takes visitors on a journey from when diamonds first began to form three billion years ago and their 150 km journey to the surface, following the unique path of South African diamonds from their origin in extinct volcanoes to the deposits along our coastline.  Learn about unique and rare gemstones, and see how jewellery has changed through thousands of years.  The story about South Africa’s mineral wealth is told, not only for diamonds, but also for our Platinum and Gold deposits.

Cango Caves

29km from Oudtshoorn, at the head of the picturesque Cango Valley, lies the spectacular underground wonder of the Klein Karoo - the Cango Caves. Situated in a limestone ridge parallel to the well-known Swartberg Mountains, you will find the finest dripstone caverns, with their vast halls and towering formations.

Buyel'Embo Village

This cultural village aims to remind us of our origin and serves as the reservoir for African knowledge pertaining to nature and traditions, giving us an opportunity to celebrate who we are through music (wonderful sounds from live bands) or from its’ distinct fineness of cuisine, topped up with African (local) arts and crafts.
