Taj Cape Town is located in the heart of the inner city of Cape Town where history and culture meets natural beauty and adventure can be found within a few minutes’ walk or a short taxi ride away.

History And Culture

For the historic and culturally minded, the city centre has historical monuments, museums and cultural attractions with Iziko Museums of South Africa operating 11 national museums, the Planetarium and the Social History Centre as well as three collection-specific libraries in Cape Town.

Much of South Africa’s rich political history can be found in Cape Town, including the Robben Island Museum which from the 17th to the 20th centuries served as a place of banishment, isolation and imprisonment.  Many indigenous African leaders, Muslim leaders, Dutch and British soldiers and anti-apartheid activists, including South Africa’s first democratic President, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela spent time on this island prison turned world heritage site.

Vast Natural Beauty

Cape Town can also accommodate nature-lovers looking for magnificent views, one-of-a-kind flora and wild life. Cape Town is rich in natural beauty including stunning views from one of the official New 7 Wonders of Nature – Table Mountain. The flat-topped mountain forming a prominent landmark overlooking the city is home to a variety of activities including an abundance of excellent hiking trails, mountain biking and bird watching.

Closer to the inner city is the Company’s Gardens which has been enjoyed by visitors for the sheer beauty of its flora and the allure of its historic setting since it was proclaimed for public use in 1848. Visitors can enjoy a relaxing walk through the gardens as they take in over 8 000 species of plants or the many sites including the oldest cultivated pear tree in South Africa, a rose garden designed and built in 1929 and the Dellville Wood Memorial Garden.

The Boulders Penguin Colony in Simons Town is also home to a unique and endangered land-based colony of African Penguins. This colony is one of only a few in the world, and the site has become famous and a popular international tourist destination with three pristine beaches and a penguin viewing area with three boardwalks within a few metres of the 2122 birds that call the colony their home

Live The Adventure

The Mother City also has a great collection of adrenalin pumping adventure tours for the extreme sports enthusiast. From Great White shark cage diving in Gansbaai harbour to sand boarding in the incredible dunes nature reserve situated just a short distance from central Cape Town – Cape Town has it all.

More extreme adventure seekers can experience tandem skydiving, paragliding from Lions Head and Signal Hill, abseiling off Table Mountain or even sea kayaking through the warm waters of False Bay. Downhill Adventures Mountain Biking day trips are also carefully designed to offer guests of all experience levels a challenging, fun-filled experience.

The Welcoming City

Much of beautiful Cape Town can be seen on the exciting Hop On Hop Off tours available, including a Red City Tour and a Blue Mini Peninsula Tour as well. Taj Cape Town’s professional City Specialist Guides and Concierge teams are also ready to introduce to you the highlights and little known gems.
