Situated at the southern tip of Africa, lies the beautiful city of Cape Town, known as the Mother City of southern Africa. The Cape has been a vital port to traders since the sixteenth century, and has changed hands between the British and Dutch colonial powers from 1620 until 1899. However, it wasn’t until 1993 that the country fought off the shackles of racism and apartheid and became a truly democratic nation. Today, Cape Town has developed into a rich multicultural centre.

Finding accommodation in Cape Town that combines comfort with healthy living is not difficult. There are numerous places to choose from. For those looking for true escape and contemplation, there are the floatation tanks. Here you can shed your jet lag and rejuvenate your body. South Africa is world famous for its mineral wealth, mainly gold, diamonds, precious and semi-precious stones. However you choose to relax and rejuvenate, the endless natural beauty provides the perfect backdrop. Cape Town’s greatest exports are the memories and experiences that you take with you on your departure.
