Table Mountain is Cape Town's most famous landmark and reaching the top is as easy as catching a cable car or as hard as hiking or climbing to the top. The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway have a revolving floor that allows passengers a 360º view of the city and Table Mountain. Watch the sun set over Camps Bay at the Cableway Cocktail Bar or enjoy a hot meal, breakfast, snacks or a drink at the Restaurant on top of Table Mountain.

robben island Robben Island

Robben Island tells the story of victory against apartheid. Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 year sentence in prison on Robben Island with many other famous anti-apartheid activists. For 400 years, the island was a place of exile, isolation and imprisonment and was not only used as a prison. It was a training and defence station during World War II (1939-1945) and a hospital for people with leprosy and the mentally and chronically ill (1846-1931). Today it represents a symbol of hope, democracy and freedom as it was a keystone site in the fight against apartheid. Since 1997 it has been a museum and heritage site and runs educational programmes, facilitates tourism development and conducts ongoing research. Various boat trips and charters are available from V&A Waterfront to visit Robben Island, 12 kms from Cape Town. A trip to the island should not be missed.

chabivin Chabivin - Champagne Guy Charbaut

Chabivin’s seed was planted in 2007 through a meeting with Hendrik Snyman, a young and passionate South African winemaker. Hendrik was working in Napa Valley, New Zealand and South Africa, gaining valuable international experience in the making of red and white wines. He then contacted the Charbaut family, applying for a wine making job to gain specialist knowledge about Champagne. The family took him in as a foreign son, teaching him about the French culture, the language, the history and secrets of making fine Champagne the French way. He will continue his journeys to France, learning even more about Champagne and will be releasing his prestige Cap Classique range in the near future. This will fuse together Hendrik's knowledge gained worldwide, especially in France, with raw material from great South African vineyards to create a gem of sparkling perfection to be enjoyed and celebrated by all. www.chabivin.co.za
