Flag of South Africa

It's the only six-coloured national flag in the world, representing the different people and groups within the country, now living peacefully together in one country. Red, white, and blue are from the Boers, the white settlers from Europe. Green, black and yellow were brought in by the African National Congress (ANC), which is Nelson Mandelas party.

Hotel Park Inn Green Market Square Cape Town

This is our excellent hotel for the first few nights in Cape Town, the Park Inn. It's located directly at the Green Market Square and offers convenient access to downtown. All the shops and places of interest are within walking distance.

Castle of Good Hope Cape Town

Every weekday at noon, the guards will be changed at the Castle of Good Hope. While today it is merely an attraction for the tourists, it has some real historic background.

The Company's Gardens are the "green lung" of Cape Town, where you can relax anytime during the day, enjoying the greens, the shadow or the waterplays.
