The Telegraph Travel Awards 2014 is one of the most comprehensive and reliable surveys of its kind in the world – making this one of the most significant accolades to be bestowed on the Mother City.
Some of the aspects of Cape Town that clinched it for the city is the fact that the urban heart of the city beats right in the middle of one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. You can go anywhere to experience the city’s beauty or shop for Afrochic design before you quench your thirst with local craft beer.
From the nearby wineland to the Michelin rated restaurants, the compliments keep rolling in.
We say, well done and well deserved. But on top of this Cape Town is also well managed with the Democratic Alliance making sure the city and the Western Cape province did not fall foul of the mismanagement and corruption experienced in provinces and cities manages by the ruling ANC (the African National Corruption party – as redubbed by the people). We can only wonder if Cape Town would have managed this under the leadership of Zuma and his cronies.
