Cape Town, famously known as ‘The Mother City’, is cradled by the world famous Table Mountain and is said to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

The city of Cape Town offers many tourist attractions steeped in history. The harbour and Waterfront are famous for attracting international trade and tourists. The V&A Waterfront, with its fascinating old buildings, entertainment, shopping centres and restaurants, is a must for any visitor to Cape Town. A cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain provides a spectacular and breathtaking view of the city and harbour. Another tourist highlight is a trip to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for almost two decades.

Visit beautiful beaches such as Clifton, Camps Bay and Muizenberg, or take a boat trip to Seal Island. A visit to Cape Town would also not be complete without a visit to one of the many wine estates for wine tasting and cellar tours. Historic estates are set among manicured vineyards and many feature local Cape Dutch architecture, and the Cape’s winelands offer a wide variety of comfortable accommodation from 5-star hotels to lodges and country houses.

AORTIC 2007 delegates will be able to extend their visit to South Africa with a choice of pre- and post-conference tours: a selection is available on the Day Trips and Pre- and Post-Conference Tours page.
