Justin Fox Shares His Top Ten Things to Do in Cape Town

The Marginal SafariUnder the SwayJustin Fox, travel journalist and author of The Marginal Safari: Scouting the edge of South Africa and Under the Sway: A photographic journey through Mozambique, has shared his top ten things to do and see in Cape Town with The Daily Beast.

Starting with the iconic Table Mountain, Fox gives a rundown of some of the Mother City’s many attractions:

Table Mountain
Hiking up this mighty slab of sandstone, a symbol of Cape Town, is almost compulsory for visitors. Choose a clear, wind-free day and take the easiest route to the top along Plattekloof Gorge. Enjoy a cool drink at the cable-station restaurant and feast on the sumptuous views. To save your legs, take the cable car back down to the city.

Mount Nelson Hotel
Also known as the Pink Lady, this grand old establishment has been the favored hotel of royals, politicians, and film stars for more than a century. Set in lovely gardens, it exudes elegance and colonial charm. If the rooms are too pricey, at least try one of the famous afternoon teas.
