Handpicked by a Cape Town Local Expert, we bring you our guide to 'The Bucket List'.

Cape Town, located in South Africa, is a city filled with breathtaking sights and unforgettable experiences. From the iconic Table Mountain to the stunning beaches along the coast, there is no shortage of must-see destinations in this vibrant city. One of the top items on any visitor's bucket list is taking a cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain. The views from the summit are truly unparalleled, offering sweeping vistas of the city below and the ocean beyond. Another essential stop is the Cape of Good Hope, where visitors can stand at the southernmost tip of the African continent. Don't forget to snap a photo at the colorful Bo-Kaap neighborhood, known for its vibrant houses and rich cultural history. For animal lovers, a visit to Boulders Beach is a must, where you can get up close and personal with a colony of adorable African penguins. Lastly, be sure to explore the bustling markets at the V&A Waterfront, where you can sample local cuisine and pick up unique souvenirs to remember your trip. Whether you're a nature enthusiast, history buff, or simply looking for a memorable adventure, Cape Town has something for everyone to add to their bucket list.
