The New York Times recently revealed that the South African city of Cape Town is the No. 1 place to visit in 2014. For those interested in Africa travel this season, consider the attractions Cape Town has to offer:
Kloofing in the Nuy River Gorge
Kloofing, or the combination of boulder climbing, swimming, abseiling and raft building, is ideal for tourists interested in adventure travel. At the Nuy River Gorge, an experienced mountain expert will lead you and your group through an overnight tour complete with food, fast friendship and excitement.
For music enthusiasts, enjoy the history and rich culture of Cape Town by embarking on their famous Jazz Safari. This tour takes visitors through the local musical scene, allowing them to fully experience the Cape jazz environment. The safari includes drinks, dinner and an exclusive performance by one of the city's most renowned artists.
Swim with penguins at Boulders Beach
With more than 3,000 African penguins inhabiting this beach, consider visiting the famous penguin colony that began in 1983. While the beach itself has an ideal combination of sun and shade, it also offers tourists the opportunity to interact with these native creatures, though they are warned not to get too close as the flightless birds can bite those who disturb them.
