Mariners as well as modern settlers have tried to capture in words
the magic of this southernmost extremity of the continent of Africa.
Here, two mighty oceans meet, presided over by the majestic Table
Mountain. Intimate scenic beaches and sleepy fishing villages nestle
in its coves. Further inland one finds a great variety of environments,
from elegant wine estates and ostrich farms to dusty desert hamlets.
Cape Town itself is a hive of commercial, artistic and cultural activities.
Its waterfront is one of the most exciting in the world.
