South Africa 1: Cape Town

South Africa  1: Cape Town

This is a memorable tour of Cape Town, South Africa, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, which is situated on the southwestern tip of Africa and includes historic buildings of the Old Cape Dutch and English architecture. Here we explore its most important attractions. The most famous landmark is Table Mountain, which is part of a nature reserve that includes wooden walkways and paths to view unique plant life of South Africa. Green Market Square, originally a commercial trading area, is a vibrant melting pot of cultural diversity bustling with shoppers. The history of Malay Quarters, also called "Bo-Kaap," dates back to 1652 when settlers were employees of the Dutch East India Company. And the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is a shopper/entertainment complex that has been developed around older wharves of the scenic Cape Town Harbor. Lastly, we learn that world famous wines have been produced in South Africa since the 17th century and today include vineyards such as Oude Nektar and KWV Vineyard. 02/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
