About Cape Town

In 2014 the New York Times named Cape Town the best place to visit in the world; and once you have seen its natural beauty, you will understand why. Where in the world do you have a mountain overlooking the city centre, which is also a few minutes away from the ocean? Cape Town has everything and more for any visitor. There is the cosmopolitan, yet laidback feel of the city, the creative film, art and design industry, and as if that wasn’t enough, Cape Town offers a mystical beauty that seduces you within the first hour of landing. This is the backdrop for EC Cape Town and our new location in the heart of the Mother City.
