Our #MotherCity: a Top World City
Cape Town was announced as ranking eleventh in the Top 25 Cities in the World in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards for 2013, and top of the African cities in the category Top 10 Cities in Africa and the Middle East.
Cape Town was also announced as Africa's Leading Destination and Africa's Leading Meetings & Conference Destination at this year’s World Travel Awards; and today Cape Town has just been named as the Number Three City in the Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2014 Top Cities list.
Year after year destination Cape Town remains a firm favourite with reader polls and surveys across the planet ... and it’s not hard to see why. Condé Nast Traveler touted Cape Town as a "marvellous destination with much to see and do”, they noted that Cape Town “scored high for its culture and atmosphere”, and mentioned that “readers like Cape Town because you'll find an ideal mix of nature, coastal, mountains and beaches with excellent restaurants at reasonable prices."
These are all the reasons we #LoveCapeTown too.

- The World's Top City in Africa and the Middle East, Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2013
- Fourth Top City in the World, Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2013
