Century City is a suburb of Cape Town, structured as a mixed-use development which includes entertainment, residential, retail and office components. Century City is traversed by numerous waterways, wetlands and canals. It has become a sought-after address for corporate South Africa and home to a growing and thriving residential community. In the heart of Century City is Intaka Island, a 16-hectare wetlands conservation area that is rich in birdlife and indigenous plants. The wetland naturally cleans the water in the canals and provides a green lung in an otherwise high-density development. The reconstructed portion of Intaka Island has been opened to the public on a controlled basis and is becoming and important eco-tourism destination. The following are three accommodation options we recommend when visiting Century City.
