Cape Town is a city like no other. Its a contrast of vibrant activity and meditative relaxation. She often compared to Rio de Janeiro, Sydney and San Francisco. Many travellers, however, find her the most beautiful city in the world. The position of South Africa's "Mother City" is at the foot of the mighty Table Mountain massif, amidst a National Park of extraordinary beauty and surrounded by two oceans, with stunning expansive beaches that enchant innumerable visitors every year.
Over the last years, the harbour city has become the main attraction in South Africa not only for local and global tourists. It is also the major destination for immigrants, from the northern provinces and other parts of South Africa because the city is a cultural mix of both African and European. People here are more relaxed, free and closer to nature and from an economical point of view, Cape Town is seen as a boom town. Any company wanting to deal with South Africa wants and needs to be present in the metropolis.
