Cape Town - If you belong to the 1% of the population waiting for answers to the question of why locals and tourists love the Mother City so much, well the wait is over. 

As an internationally-acclaimed destination, the city is famous for its harbour, its natural setting in the Cape Floristic Region, and for such well-known landmarks as Table Mountain and Cape Point.

In fact the views of Table Mountain are, in a word, Instagrammable on any given day no matter the weather, and on a clear day you will get the perfect shot of this iconic World Heritage site.
