Cape Town is southern Africa's most beautiful, most romantic and most-visited city. Few urban centers anywhere can match its setting along the Cape Peninsula spine, which slides like the mighty tail of the continent into the Atlantic Ocean. By far the most striking - and famous - of its sights is Table Mountain, frequently mantled by clouds, and rearing up from the middle of the city to provide a constantly changing vista to the suburbs below. Table Mountain is the city's solid core which divides the city into distinct zones with public gardens, wilderness, forests, hiking routes, vineyards and desirable residential areas trailing down it's lower slopes.

On one of the loveliest stretches of the Eastern Cape's magnificent Indian Ocean coastline, East London is South Africa's only river port city, set beside broad Buffalo River. It's an attractive and young-at-heart place that preserves architectural and other intriguing reminders of its past British connections (try the shopping in Oxford Street!). The beautiful beaches, pubs, shops and restaurants of Latimers Landing waterfront and exhilarating scenery of the spectacular and unspoilt Wild Coast are all worth visiting. The city is site of an art gallery, zoo, and aquarium. The first known specimen of a coelacanth, a fish thought to have been extinct for several million years, was caught in 1938 near East London and is preserved in the city museum.
