The Biodiversity Hotspot

The Cape district is one of the world’s top biodiversity hotspots, containing twenty percent of Africa’s plant species.

From the colourful Malay Quarter to the townships of Gugulethu and Khayelitsha, Cape Town’s Dutch, Malay, British and African mix never fails to fascinate. Set under the shadow of Table Mountain and hugging the slopes of Lion’s Head and Signal Hill, every walk offers a photo opportunity and every hike presents a different panorama. Gardeners will love the vast Kirstenbosch Gardens, while history buffs can visit Robben Island and District Six, symbols of the struggle against apartheid.
