Cape Town crowned best destination in Africa

Mother City wins at World Tourism Awards

Cape Town has again earned top honours in the world of tourism. The Mother City was named Best Destination in Africa at the World Tourism Awards.

It is the seventh time this accolade has been won by the city since 1998. With some tough competition from fellow South African destinations Johannesburg, Durban and the Kruger National Park, Cape Town was also up against Luxor in Egypt, Marrakech in Morocco and the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.

It’s been a good year for the Mother City as it was also named TripAdvisor’s Top Destination and was in the top ten for Travel and Leisure’s World’s Best Cities.

Here’s our list of things you have to do at least once in Cape Town.
