Cape Town is South Africa’s oldest city, founded by Jan van Riebeeck and the first Dutch settlers, in 1652. The English circumventer, Sir Francis Drake, described it as ‘the fairest cape in the whole world’, nestling snugly in the natural amphitheater between the immensity of Table Mountain and the blue waters of Table Bay. Tourists frequent Robben Island, Cape Point, the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden or enjoy a trip to scenic Cape Winelands.
