From Cape Town's beaches and scenic mountain hikes to its best vineyards and hotels: An ultimate guide to the South African hot spot that has it all


From Cape Town's beaches and scenic mountain hikes to its best vineyards and hotels: An ultimate guide to the South African hot spot that has it all.

With its towering mountains, penguin-strewn beaches and world-class vineyards, Cape Town has it own.

Room rates at its best hotels are eye-wateringly costly, but everything else is absurdly cheap - a decent bottle of everyday wine, for example, will set you back only £2.

Here is MailOnline Travel's tested-and-approved guide; from hotels and restaurants to experiences including a cable car ride up Table Mountain, a drop-in to a penguin-populated beach and the chance to swim with seals in the wild.

The service really stood out here - it felt more like being the guest of a friend than just another hotel patron. Twentytwo is quirky, centrally located, with a great pool and the rooms are comfortable - all-in-all, a bargain.
