As the second largest city in South Africa, Cape Town is frequented by tourists from all over the world. During your trip, pay a visit to The Castle of Good Hope which is the oldest surviving building in the country and displays an array of art and historical artefacts. The more adventurous traveller can enjoy a trip up Table Mountain on an aerial cable car and back down, or others may want to abseil back down this beautiful mountain. The Two Oceans Aquarium is a great place to see the sharks up close and history buffs will enjoy a trip to District Six Museum. Plan your holiday in advance and follow some safety tips to ensure you come home unscathed.
Surviving your trip to Cape Town
When visiting the local towns and residences, it is best to stick with an official tour guide. If you are out in the evenings, take a taxi home and avoid walking around alone or taking public transport. Ensure you call a reputable taxi company. If you are planning on taking a walk through Cape Town, there are thieves, beggars and pickpockets so leave valuables in the hotel safe and be sure to keep very little cash on you if possible. Some areas are worse than others so it is best to get some advice on which areas are safest to walk through. Trying not to appear like a tourist works well to deter potential theft. There could be an accident within the confines of your hotel or during another part of your holiday if there is negligence. You have the right to compensation if this is the case.
