Cape Town: Top Attractions
The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront attracts more than 24 million visitors a year
The V&A Waterfront gets its name from the two basins in Cape Town’s harbour. The area was redeveloped as a mixed-use area with a focus on retail, tourism and residential development with a working harbour at its centre in the late 1980s.
The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront covers an area of 123 hectares. Today more than 21000 people are employed by the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront company and visitors can explore more than 450 retail outlets.
The Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden has been around for more than 100 years
The gardens were founded in 1913 to preserve South Africa’s unique flora. At the time it was the first botanical garden in the world with this ethos. Only indigenous plants are cultivated at Kirstenbosch (with a few minor exceptions). Today it’s frequently used for live music shows.
Lion’s Head is not called Lion’s Head because lions used to walk around there.
When looking at the mountain from a distance, (some) people recognise the shape of a lion with head and tail (‘Leeuwen Kop’ and ‘Leeuwen Staart’, currently known as Lion’s Head and Signal Hill).
Cape Town’s Castle of Good Hope is the oldest building in South Africa.
It was built between 1666 and 1679 by the Dutch East India company.
