Even though the Muslim-friendly tourism market is still in its early phase, there are many things that the Muslim travelers can enjoy in the city all through the year.

 
Avukile Mabombo, Group Marketing Manager, Protea Hotels by Marriott, stated that Cape Town has a rich Muslim history and heritage, with the Cape Malay Muslim’s comprising a quarter of our population.

 
“Cape Town is the place for South Africa’s first Muslim settlers and is home to the oldest mosque in South Africa, dating back an impressive 200 years,” he said.

 
“There are some neighbourhoods that have traditionally been home to lively Muslim communities, including Bo-Kaap and the Cape Flats/Southern Suburbs ranging from Athlone through Rondebosch East to Lansdowne. Kramats and Mosques are dotted throughout the peninsula, showcasing how local communities have been firmly entrenched in the history of the city.”

 
The Mother City is known to be a family-friendly destination with access to prayer spaces, excellent airport facilities, rich cultural heritage, and ease of communication, simple VISA requirements and growing capacity in terms of air connectivity. There are eight Islamic radio stations and two TV stations to offer Muslim-friendly information and entertainment.
