Day 1: Settle into the city
Use your first day in South Africa’s 'Mother City' to get your bearings. The City Sightseeing hop-on hop-off bus offers a number of routes in and around town, allowing you to jump off at key points in the city. Start with the historic Bo-Kaap district, home to a vibrant Muslim community and famous for its colourfully painted homes.
Then meander through the Company’s Garden and bustling downtown. Take in Bree Street for some of the city’s best restaurants, or Loop, Long and Kloof Streets for art, design and local boutiques.
The East City is a precinct on the up; home to colourful street art and the world-famous Truth Coffee. End your day with a sunset walk on the Sea Point Promenade, before dinner on the seafront in nearby Mouille Point.
