Cape Town

12 Apostles Cape TownCape Town is the second most populous city in South Africa, after Johannesburg, and the provincial capital and primate city of the  Western Cape.The city is famous for its harbour, its natural setting in the Cape floral kingdom, as well as for well known landmarks such as Table Mountain and Cape Point.

Located on the shore of Table Bay, Cape Town was originally developed by the Dutch East India Company as a refreshment and supply station for Dutch ships sailing to East Africa, India, and the Far East. Jan van Riebeeck’s  arrival on 6 April 1652 established the first permanent European settlement in South Africa. Cape Town quickly outgrew its original purpose as the first European outpost at the Castle of Good Hope, becoming the economic and cultural hub of  the Cape Colony. Until the Witwatersrand Gold Rush and the development of Johannesburg, Cape Town was the largest city in South Africa.

Today it is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, reflecting its role as a major destination for immigrants and expatriates to South Africa. As of 2011 the metropolitan region had an estimated population of 3.74 million. The city was named the World Design Capital for 2014 by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design.

The city has favourable climate most times of the year and has a well developed tourism and boasts unforgettable beauty and scenery.
