“Cape Town Pride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

The University of Cape Town is one of the best properties in the Mother City. In between Rhodes Memorial and Kirstenbosch Gardens, the University changes the lives of thousands of students every year. It's a wonderful place to go for a job or a run, safe for women and has exquisite views. It's definitely one of Cape Town's most proudest features.

“Take in a show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Attended a one man show (normality) at the University....thoroughly enjoyed it! The theatre was small & quaint almost like a private viewing! Would encourage other tourists to take the time to attend one of their productions if they are that way inclined!

“UCT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Voted one of the most spectacular campuses in the world, the university is set on the slopes of Table Mountain. You will drive past it on the M3 out of town towards the southern suburbs.
