Without any bias, Cape Town is one of the most naturally beautiful cities in the world. Besides South Africa being the most economically unequal country in the world, it still holds an unfound beauty and positivity that captures the hearts of many tourists who visit.
For those of you flying into Cape Town for the first time, you will see the legacy of apartheid which forced all races in South Africa to live separately in designated areas for more than 50 years with a close-up flyover of the township of Guguletu. Even 25 years after apartheid ended, the country still bears the scars of this forced segregation and social inequality, but do not take this as a sign that Cape Town or South Africa is a city/country that has not moved on from the past as that could not be further from the truth. You will find that the majority of South Africans believe in Nelson Mandela’s dream of a rainbow nation and this belief makes them one of the friendliest, welcoming, and most positive people in the world.
For many of you this will be your first visit to this amazing country and city, but we guarantee that for the majority of you this will not be the last.
