Cape Town’s local government is the City of Cape Town, which is a metropolitan municipality. Cape Town is governed by a 210-member city council .The city is divided into 105 electoral wards; each ward directly elects one member of the council, whilst the other 105 councilors are elected by a party-list promotional list system.

With its wide variety of activities one could easily spend a week or more in Cape Town. It is a good idea to have a rough idea of what you would like to see and do while in Cape Town and plan a rough itinerary.
Cape Town airport offers an excellent entry point to South Africa. The airport has recently undergone extensive renovations to bring it into line with international standards. When in South Africa it is advisable to hire a car as many destinations are not easily accessible by public transport. Although there are public transport systems in Cape Town, they are not entirely suited to the holiday maker and are not always reliable after hours. A self-drive tour starting in Cape Town and traveling through South Africa is a popular holiday choice. There are many tourism choices to do there. One of the most exiting programs is the Two Oceans Aquarium.
The city of Cape Town is the most exiting city in Africa , this is my opinion about the city of Cape town.
