It was in Cape Town’s Table Bay where the Europeans established their first settlement in South Africa. Today it is South Africa’s second most populated city, one of the country’s three capitals and seat of the nation’s parliament. Being one of the most multicultural cities in the world, it is a major destination for immigrants and expatriates moving to South Africa.
Economy and Development
Cape Town has been named as the most entrepreneurial city in South Africa, with the percentage of Capetonians pursuing business opportunities almost three times higher than the national average. With the highest number of successful IT companies in Africa, the city is an important hub for the industry on the whole continent.
Few cities can boast one of the new seven wonders of nature at their heart, alongside crescent golden beaches and beautiful vineyards. Cape Town is South Africa’s Mother City, a vibrant melting pot of creativity, colour, traditions and lifestyles, living together in harmony and protected by the iconic Table Mountain at their back. Cape Town is a city where the unexpected is always just around the corner and the beautiful province of the Western Cape lies ready to be explored across the city border.
