Cape Town and Your Hotel

mountnelson_tablemount05

Welcome to Cape Town

How many places on Earth can boast a soaring mountain landscape—right at the heart of a big city? South Africa can: Iconic Table Mountain provides an inspiring backdrop to everyday life in its vibrant, cosmopolitan, “Mother City” of Cape Town. The city’s thriving business and commercial communities demonstrate South Africa’s core values of sharing ideas and working together for positive change.

From its mountain heights to its handsome harbor and bustling business district, Cape Town welcomes us to Africa. Here at the edge of this continent, with a tobacco tradition dating back more than 300 years and spreading beyond 33 countries, we can review the present and explore positive futures for our fast-evolving industry environment.

While you are in Cape Town, don’t miss:

  • The bustling markets, bars and restaurants on Kloof Street and Long Street
  • An explosion of color and creative talent in the museums and galleries of the Museum Mile
  • The Victoria and Alfred waterfront—delightfully redeveloped docklands
  • Street music, possible anywhere and anytime!
  • Tours of world-renowned vineyards, such as the Stellenbosch Wine Routes
