Visit these Points of Interest in Capetown

If you like spectacular views and don't mind a challenging uphill hour-long hike or traveling on a rope 112 metres down Table Mountain, then it's definitely on your agenda for those who love adventure, thrills, yet still safe. You must visit Abseil, Africa.  

Dive into shark-infested waters

Just when you thought it was safe to go into the water… South Africa has an incredibly diverse shark population. A quarter of the world’s shark species (98 to be precise) dwell in South African waters and around 40 of these call the waters around Cape Town home.

Adrenalin junkies will want to make the 175-kilometre (110-mile) journey to Gansbaii, the white shark capital of the world. Shark cage diving is big business here and the tourism bureau endorses a whopping eight companies.

If you like Victorian tiling, old folk art, and custom-tailored garments, an ideal place to stop by is the Pan African Market and Greenmarket Square for African folk art, jewelry, clothing, and interesting souvenirs for a true adventure in haggling.

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens - regarded as one of the top botanical gardens in the world. It almost seems endless how much there is to see, so block out a couple of hours. A top pick for nature and wildlife lovers.

Cape Point Nature Reserve - Features lovely views and fascinating trails. As you would expect,  nature is abundant and spectacular.  All of natures natural elements merge together, (rocks, trees, plants, and springs) produce a view that is unforgettable.

Venture down to the southernmost point of Africa, Cape Agulhas is where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet. Another attraction is one of Africa's oldest lighthouses. The area is about two-hours away but worth the quick visit.
